Gold paints the sky Just after sunrise Elation fills all space inside When my eyes meet your eyes Yellow leaves kissed by the breeze Rain down on me All thought retreats into silence sweetly Completing you and me Drinking the sight Of the winter light All comes to life With you by my side Three stars in a line A sign of a dark time And a hopeful start A circle moon rises Your hand touches mine Setting sparks in my heart Drinking the sight Of the winter light All comes to life With you by my side Darkness surrounds me Your arms wrap around me Then light streams down on me Our whole world is singing Darkness surrounds me Your arms wrap around me Then light shines upon me Our whole, one world is singing Drinking the sight Of the winter light All comes to life With you by my side Drink to the sight Of the winter light All comes to life With you by my side

I’m watching the sunrise With you Not a cloud in the sky Still cold here this morning But by afternoon A wind will be warming Our city by the ocean Where I’ve never seen it snow But wouldn’t dream of leaving No place I’d rather go (California) Ride to the promenade On two wheels Little lunch by the seaside Near the cliff on a park bench Where a date and her name is inscribed Yea our city by the ocean Where I’ve never seen it snow The place we hid from Christmas After He took her home California winter California California winter California Our little dream of a paradise Here and now in paradise The peace rose in the garden Is flowering Despite these dark days Tonight at our fire Orion Will rise as you hold me, and we’ll celebrate Our city by the ocean Where we’ve never seen it snow At Christmas new emotion Stirring love, makes it grow Oh the feeling by the ocean Pulls my heart to my Soul I wouldn’t dream of leaving No place I’d rather go California winter California California winter California No place I’d rather go

Noel 01:41
The first Noel the angels did say Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay In fields where they lay keeping their sheep On a cold winter's night that was so deep Noel, noel, noel Noel, noel, noel Noel, no hell, noel

It’s a frozen winter night On a silver bed of snow This silence stills the chill in my mind With a warmth in my Soul from the moon all aglow And the lights in our southern sky Are the stars all aligned with the fable Symbol of a miracle, where we become one So I wait in the dark for the Sun For the light, wait for the light On this darkest eve of the year Candles dance with our fire burning bright Holding hands with the hope that our peace is right here Angels with broken wings taking flight There’s no night in the southern sky And glowing wind with the northern auroras Joined by this phenomenon, as we are all one So I wait in the dark for the birth of the Sun For the light, wait for the light Awakened by light And the lights in our southern sky Are the stars all aligned with the fable Symbol of the miracle, remembering we are all one So I wait in the dark for the birth of the Son For the light, wait for the light Awakened by light Here comes the light

This winter is feeling colder This winter the night has come To wrap us all in silver starlight This winter could be the one Where peace lives beyond imagination With release of divided condemnation With complete hope beyond a hesitation To stand all together This winter it’s getting warmer At the North Pole and deep within With warnings sounding all around us This winter we just might begin To make a change part of daily conversation Increase our positive meditation And cease all this needless degradation To stand all together For love and light For love and life We are circles concentric Notes in one symphony Our puzzle grows allometric Pieces all connected just like you and me This winter This winter stand together This winter Take my hand and make a stand together For love and light For love and life For love and light For love and life Let’s stand together this winter Stand together this winter Stand up together this winter Take my hand and make a stand together This winter

Winter is for dreaming While mother nature is sleeping Yet underground Stirs the sound of new spring Are you listening to the symphony Of our earth song Changing when the nights are long And the Dog Star rises in the east (winter glow) Winter is for dreaming Of the peace we could be keeping Yet we’re hibernating Souls awaiting This one true thing (peace) All humanity Meant for harmony Tied with each other And our living Mother Still in the cold we sleep ‘til our awakening Winter glow Silent snow Moonlight low to the ground In winter’s glow Wise hearts know There’s a magical world to be found Love is how Love is how Snow falling down Arms wrapping around Envelop our town sleeping sound For now In winter glow Silent snow Moonlight low to the ground In winter’s glow Wise hearts know At sunrise a chorus resounds Then rivers flow And forests grow There’s a magical world to be found Now Love is how Love is how Snow falling down Melting somehow As dawn comes around

It’s the holidays again And me I’ve caught the blues Sad I’d rather hide inside ‘Cause the world has blown its fuse Don’t even want to go online Just to find there’s more bad news Yea it’s the holidays again This time I’ve got the blues Holiday funky blues I’ve got the holiday funky blues Momma’s living all alone And I just can’t bring her home Daddy’s got a new wife now They all can’t get along I’m writing up my wish list Things that money just can’t buy A world in peace and harmony ‘Stead of one that makes me cry Holiday funky blues I’ve got the holiday funky blues Holiday funky blues I’ve got the holiday funky blues My best friend has gone to heaven Her family’s left behind Not a year for celebrating This season seems unkind But holding onto one another The only hope we find On this earth where eye for an eye Will leave the whole world blind Holiday funky blues I’ve got the holiday funky blues Holiday funky blues I’ve got the holiday funky blues

Dream 02:52
Don’t want to believe What I see on the Livestream What they sell me on the TV It’s haunting But if you lay down your gun You can feel the winter warming sun Through the window And the soft glow Of Mother turning Dream, dream Imagining you and me In the same dream If we open our hearts Well we’re making a start To remember the one part Of every soul Beneath their guard So if you lay down your gun Then at least we have begun To recondition If we listen To our Father’s yearning Dream, dream Imagining you and me In the same dream With the same dream With same dream Imagining you and me In the same dream You can feel the winter warming sun Through the window And the soft glow Of our Mother turning Don’t want to believe What I see on the Livestream

Our friends think we’re crazy For not watchin’ TV We’d rather sit together And talk with the trees Then garden ‘til we get dirty Just to jump in the blue sea The life we’re living baby Fills all of my needs Love is the answer Yea and love is the gift Baby love holds us together Yea and love is at the top of my Christmas list Love to hear you playing guitar First thing in the morning Philosophize With the dog while we’re walking Raise a glass eye to eye When we dine every evening I fall asleep To your voice while you’re reading baby Togetherness That’s how we are blessed Togetherness Is our oasis in this wilderness Love is the answer Yea and love is the gift Oh baby love holds us together Yea and love is at the top of my list Love is the answer Yea and love is the gift Oh baby love holds us together Yea and love is at the top of my Christmas list Talk together Walk together Read together Sleep together Plant together Grow together Cook together Clean together Sing together Play together Write together Wrong together Dream together Dance together Umm together Ummm hmmm hmmmm

Wake me from dreaming Of the end This could be our last Christmas The age is turning In this moment waiting Present living memory Breathing in the beauty Honoring all living If this were the last lighting Our candles burning If this were our last winter What are we learning In this moment loving Consciousness expanding Breathing in the beauty Celebrate all living

Kiss of Hope 03:36
I light a candle in my chest Most of the world’s in darkness And I’m despaired I must confess But I won’t feed that emptiness Hope is where the heart is Hope Is where the heart is I’m fighting apprehension with every breath Call an intervention to sway this death With intention divide my attention And find my true self in the wilderness Hope is where the heart is Hope Is where the heart is baby Hope is where the heart is I need a kiss of hope this year Earth looks dead in the ice and snow Conjures dread of the undertow Speeding the end of the we world we know Wake up friends nowhere else to go But inside Nowhere else to go Eyes open wide Nowhere to else to go Nowhere else to go Nowhere else to go Wait Hope is where the heart is Hope Is where the heart is baby Hope is where the heart is I need a kiss of hope this year I need a kiss of hope this year baby I need some hope this year So bring it here Need a little bit of hope this year So bring it here Need a kiss of hope Need a kiss of hope

Oh Holy Night Traditional O Holy Night the stars are brightly shining It is the night of the dear Savior's birth Long lay the world in sin and error pining Till he appear'd and the soul felt its worth A thrill of hope the weary soul rejoices For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn Fall on your knees Oh hear the angel voices Oh night divine Oh night when Christ was born Oh night divine Oh night divine Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming Here come the wise men from Orient land The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger In all our trials born to be our friend He knows our need Our weakness is no stranger Behold your King Before him lowly bend Behold your King Before him lowly bend Truly He taught us to love one another His law is love and His gospel is peace Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother And in His name all oppression shall cease Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we Let all within us praise His holy name Christ is the Lord Oh praise HIs name forever His power and glory Evermore proclaim His power and glory Evermore proclaim
