lyrics

the sky and i were cold and gray
the love i'd known was long away
so bitter, mean, and full of spite
i'd go out courting cark and fight
i'd sate my thirsts abundantly
with sloth and lust as company
pretending i was not lonely
i'd stumble home most clumsily
- but there on the path in front of me
i saw a coterie
and i heard a Christmas song
and wanting to belong
i merged into the throng
where i sang a Christmas song
& tho' some words were wrong
i felt both weak and strong
"peace, bring me peace, o lord
please, hear my pleas
free me from the cells i make
and do the same for all, amen"
i still get mad i still get sad
i still do things i know are bad
i shun the light i curse the sky
and pity me, myself and i
but then on the path in front of me
i saw a coterie
and i heard a Christmas song
and wanting to belong
i merged into the throng
where i sang a Christmas song
& though some words were wrong
i felt both weak and strong
"peace, bring me peace, o lord
please, hear my pleas
free me from the cells i make
and do the same for all, amen"
