They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on....
It don't snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm going to make a lot of money
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly....
And in YOUR world of plenty, YOU can spread a smile of joy!
But say a prayer - pray for the other ones....
Where the only water flowing is a bitter sting of tears and the christmas bells that ring there are the clanging chimes of doom. The greatest gift we'll get this year is life where nothing ever grows ..no rain or rivers flow...Do YOU/WE know it's christmas time at all?
Let them know it's christmas time and feed the world....
In her early years she had to learn
How to grow up living in a war that she called home?
Never know just where to turn for shelter from the storm
Hurt me to see the pain across my mother's face
Hearing all the yelling I would cry up in my room
Hoping it would be over soon
Bruises will always fade but the pain remains the same
Strength is my mother for all the love she gave
Every morning that I wake I look back to yesterday...NO I'm NOT OK....
I often wonder why I carry all this guilt
When it's you that helped me put up all these walls I've built....
The echo of a broken child screaming "please no more"
It's not so easy to forget
And every day I'm afraid to come home
In fear of what I might see there ....
