Spread a little Christmas love

The old hippie in me has tried to write a Christmas peace song ….I had a couple of hours today with Seb at pre-school so i just got on with it…i think the sentiment is there but the verses do need a polish but hey! ive ran out of time so this is what it is folks….Merry Christmas….Peace & Love……

SPREAD A LITTLE CHRISTMAS LOVE
D FSharp G X3 G D GD (Verse) Chorus B FSharp x3 G D G D
A man sits watching the waves
Trying to remember a life he once had
Now all is lost to memory and time
As he reaches out inside his mind to touch a hand thats no longer there
he hears the screams of death in his desperate time

Nobody wants to help, nobody feels his need
All they see is a foreigner, on his knees
The media tells us this mans a threat
Making us blind to. this human with an obvious need

It’s time to see though the varnish into the truth
It’s time to understand the word compassion
It’s time to walk in someone else’s shoes
It’s time to spread a little Christmas love
what we need this Christmas is peace and love

A man pushes the knife into the chest
with hate filling his heart and mind
he doesn’t know the mans name , only his religion
The troubled times strangle the truth, till hate fills all our minds
and war becomes the only decision
it’s time to put it right, it’s time to let it go
This Christmas time is not the place

It’s time to see though the varnish into the truth
It’s time to understand the word compassion
It’s time to walk in someone else’s shoes
It’s time to spread a little Christmas love
what we need this Christmas time is peace and love

Break

A man wakes in a hospital bed without a hand to touch his brow
his legs are gone he can no longer walk
his wife and children are by his bed side
Holding back the tears they all want to cry
and the question hangs in the air, why

The minister gives his report of the days events
as the news cameras start to wurr
but not a single person who hears really believes a word

It’s time to see though the varnish into the truth
It’s time to understand the word compassion
It’s time to walk in someone else’s shoes
It’s time to spread a little Christmas love
what we need this Christmas time is peace and love
