CHRISTMAS JOY


When someone very dear
Calls you with the words everything’s all clear
That’s what you want to hear
But you know it might be different in the New Year

That’s why, that’s why we hang the lights so high
Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy,
You loved it as a kid, and now you need it more than you ever did
It’s because of the dark; we see the beauty in the spark
That’s why, that’s why the carols make you cry
Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy

Tinsel on the tree, yes I see
The holly on the door, like before
The candles in the gloom, light the room
the Sally Army band, yes I understand

So light the winds of fire,
and watch as the flames grow higher
well gather up our fears
And face down all the coming years
All that they destroy
And in their face we throw our
Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy

It’s why, we hang the lights so high
And gaze at the glow of silver birches in the snow
Because of the dark, we see the beauty in the spark
We must be alright, if we could make up Christmas night.

The making of

And her advent calendary

TINSEL AND LIGHTS

We walked down the street as the snow started falling
Stamping our feet all the taxi cabs crawling
You said I’m so cold I can’t remember my name
And I said the same

He took her photo and said he adored her
In New York martini it literally floored her
And we played Miss America over again
And again and again, oh
Oh, the light was a New York Christmas baby
It was the way it should be done
Oh we saw the sights, tinsel and lights
Looking down the barrel of a gun

Now years have gone by and we’re all so much older
The winters gone warmer than last years got colder
And we all have some things about how the time goes
That we rather not know
Oh, the light was a New York Christmas baby
Snowflakes like diamonds in her hair
And we watched them all, sparkle and fall
Something almost true was in the air
Yeah that, was a New York Christmas baby
Yeah that, was the way it was back then
Oh we saw the sights, tinsel and lights
You kissed me in the snow and that was when
I feel in love with Christmas once again.
