Track Name: All Comes to Life
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
Track Name: California Winter (Loveshadow Mix)
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
Track Name: Noel
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
Track Name: The Light (Alex Beroza Mix)
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
Track Name: This Winter (Zep Hurme Mix)
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
Track Name: Winter Glow (Admiral Bob Mix)
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
Track Name: Holiday Funky Blues (Raja FFM Mix)
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
Track Name: Best Time of the Year
It’s the best time of the year
For me to love you my dear
Hold me all night, yea
We’re under the lights
It’s the best time of the year

There’s a yule log burning low
Babe you know I love you so
Don’t feel the cold
Or the winter wind blow
As long as you’re holding me near

It’s the best time of the year
For me to love you my dear
Hold me all night, yea
We’re under the lights
It’s the best time of the year

Wishing for stars and on nights when it’s dark
It’s warm in my heart when we start
As long as it’s snowing keep mistletoeing
It’s the best time of the year

It’s fifteen below
But we wouldn’t know
We’re bundled up together in here

Oh, it’s the best time of the year
For you to kiss me my dear
No need to fight
Let’s make love all night
It’s the best time of the year

Oh, wishing on stars and long nights when it’s dark
It’s warm in my heart when we start
As long as it’s snowing keep mistletoeing
It’s the best time of the year
Track Name: Dream
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
Track Name: Top of My List (Unreal_DM Mix)
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
Track Name: Our Last Christmas
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
Track Name: Kiss of Hope
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
Track Name: Oh Holy Night
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
