lyrics

*** crying on christmas day ***

from the dawn the angels cried a sacred song
passing on the sounds of love through ancient tears

once a year the family is close
to beg for love
to sing for joy
to hope for harmony
that peace on earth is more than words

look up young one
the snow falls just same
on the place you call home
when you are suffering
and the garland is gold
and the records still play
does it feel alright crying on christmas day?

cynical and killing the only dream,
hopeless poems forgotten by wishful weeds

once a year the family is close
to beg for love
to sing for joy
to hope for harmony
that peace on earth is more than words

look up young one
the snow falls just same (we are all the same)
on the place you call home
when you are suffering (we are suffering)
and garland is gold
and the records still play
does it feel alright
crying on christmas day?
