Christmas Like a Lullaby

This is dedicated to all my Aussie friends. This song always makes me feel so Christmassy. Mom got this tape a few years ago and it is probably one of my favourite Christmas albums. I've never been to Colorado or Australia but I firmly believe that "That home is where the heart is, And christmas lives there too"

Merry Christmas my friends!!!

Christmas like a lullaby steals across the land
A breeze upon the waters, rainfall on the sand
We celebrate a baby born from spirit into man
And christmas like a lullaby steals across the land

It's morning in australia; in fact it's christmas day
And colorado never seemed so very far away
Back where night has fallen and it's still christmas eve
And snow is in the mountains that i always hate to leave

But here i am down under with a brand new family
Christmas bells are ringing
There's presents 'neath the tree
I know that it's been said before and now i know it's true
That home is where the heart is
And christmas lives there too
And on this morning peace on earth
Is still your fervent prayer
And i can feel it being
Whispered softly everywhere

And guns are are called to silence
And anger called to still
And brotherhood and sisterhood
Surrounded by goodwill

Christmas like a lullaby steals across the land
A breeze upon the waters, rainfall on the sand
We celebrate a baby born from spirit into man
And christmas like a lullaby steals across the land
