Always Christmas

Listen to

Words and music by John Kairn
This version performed by The Other Side


How we are at Christmas
Just seems to me
Is really a picture
How we should always be

Loved ones coming home
No-one is alone
Strangers greeting strangers
As if they were old friends

Sharing love as we live
Happiness as we give
Foolish things are more fun
When we feel some magic set free

An old man is our hero
And children are stars
Neighbours come out to the street
Songs reach into hearts

Love unites us all
Our differences are small
Wars stop on Christmas day
We cherish peace

Candles burn for new life
Keep them shining bright
While our dreams are clearer
We can see a better world

How we are at Christmas
It just seems to me
Is really a picture
How we should always be
