It is the time

words/music : A.Gräfe

The time we talk about our humanity
it is the time we bethink our family
We´ll might even go in church and pray
it is the time of love and peace ,so they say

The gifts are bought, wrapped up and waiting here
an all consuming orgy year after year
house is glistening in bright light and splendor
donations done, we´re playing the big spender

Christmas time is near, dont you smell it in the air
harmony is kickin in, right in time as every year
Christmas time is coming, christmas time is coming

A memory´s flaring up like a blaze
we´re missin christmas of our childhood days
When did it loose its magic, I dont know
replaced by melancholy long time ago

Everyone sits by the fireside,
a breeze of cinemon through the house
snow is fallin slightly, awaiting Santa Claus

Light the candles, sing of baby Jesus
ignore the neighbour, where the bigger tree is
take your loved ones by the hand
enjoy the pretty winter wonderland

Christmas time is near, dont you smell it in the air
harmony is kickin in, right in time as every year
Christmas time is coming, christmas time is coming
