A Change at Christmas
I know everything changes.
Yeah, its strange how time marches on.
Maybe there'll be some time in the future.
Oh, tell me I'm not wrong.
Oh, if I could stop time,
it would be a frozen moment just around Christmas
When all of mankind reveals its truest potential.
And there is sympathy for the suffering
Yes, there is sympathy for those who are suffering
And the world embraces peace and love and mercy
Instead of power and fear
And as sure as I'm standing here
I swear it really does appear that a change comes over us
Yes, some kind of change comes over us
And it's glimpsed for one shining moment
And this change feels like a change that's real.
But then it passes along with the season
And then we just go back the way we were
Say it isn't so.
Tell me I'm not just a dreamer
I'm talking with a friend and he knows how it ends
He says it's easier, that's just the way we are.
That's human nature and that's just the way we are.
Oh, say it isn't so!
