It’s Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas

Posted by addisethiopia on December 25, 2015

WHEN A CHILD IS BORN

A ray of hope flickers in the sky
a tiny star lights up way up high
all across the land, dawns a brand new morn
this comes to pass when a child is born

A silent wish sails the seven seas
the winds of change whisper in the trees
and the walls of doubt crumble, tossed and torn
this comes to pass when a child is born

A rosy hue settles all around
you’ve got the feel you’re on solid ground
for a spell or two, no-one seems forlorn
this comes to pass when a child is born

And all of this happens because the world is waiting,
waiting for one child
black, white, yellow, no-one knows
but a child that will grow up and turn tears to laughter,
hate to love, war to peace and everyone to everyone’s neighbour
and misery and suffering will be words to be forgotten, forever

It’s all a dream, an illusion now
it must come true, sometime soon somehow
all across the land, dawns a brand new morn
this comes to pass when a child is born

I’M COMING HOME

Sitting in a railway station with my suitcase in my hand
Going back where I came from, I’ve had more than I can stand
Of watching men destroy my dreams
They picked my brain till it was clean

When I was up they knocked me down
I ain’t going to hand around, I’m going home
I’m going home, going home
Tell someone to meet me I’m coming home

Came to this old town seeking fortune and some fame
Never got the chance to prove myself, though I tried to play their game
But using people just ain’t my thing
And I don’t dangle from any string
To please some fool that don’t care about
They turned me inside out, I’m going home

I’m going home, going home

Tell someone to meet me I’m coming home
Tell someone to meet me I’m coming home
I’m going home, going home
Tell someone to meet me I’m coming home

I’m going home, going home
Tell someone to meet me I’m coming home
I’m going home, going home
Tell someone to meet me I’m coming home

When Music Was Written With The Capitol „M“ – The One and Only Johny Mathis LIVE From New York – Modesty + Competence + Wonderful Voice – the king would shame today’s mickey-mouse-voiced princes and princesses of the pop culture. God bless the legend!
