Final Thoughts:

I Believe in Father Christmas


They said there'll be snow at Christmas

They said there'll be peace on Earth

But instead it just kept on raining

A veil of tears for the virgin's birth

I remember one Christmas morning

A winters light and a distant choir

And the peal of a bell, the Christmas tree smell

Eyes full of tinsel and fire

They sold me a dream of Christmas

They sold me a silent night

They told me a fairy story

But I believed in the Israelites

I believed in Father Christmas

I looked at the sky with excited eyes

'Til I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn

I saw him through his disguise

I wish you a hopeful Christmas

I wish you a brave new year

All anguish, pain and sadness

Leave your heart, let your road be clear

They said there'll be snow at Christmas

They said there'll be peace on Earth

Hallelujah, Noel, be it Heaven or Hell

The Christmas we get, we deserve.
