I've made the same mistake before
Too many malls too many stores
December traffic Christmas rush
Breaks me till I push and shove
Children are crying while mothers are trying
To photograph Santa and sleigh
The shopping and buying and standing forever in line
What can I say?
I need a silent night a Holy night to hear an angel voice
Through the chaos and the noise I need a midnight clear
A little peace right here to end this crazy day with a silent night
December comes then disappears
Faster and faster every year
Did my own mother keep this pace
Or was the world a different place?
Where people stayed home wishing for snow
Watching three channels on their tv
Look at us now rushing around trying to buy Christmas peace
What was it like back there in Bethlehem
With peace on earth good will toward men?
