My All-time Favorite
Christmas Song

Two days to go and it's Christmas. Just wanna share this favorite Christmas song by Dave Mathews. I love it so much that I play it even it's not Christmas season. The melody doesn't sound so "christmasy". You won't here sleigh bells, words like "halleluiah" or "presents under the Christmas tree". It simply is about the life of Jesus and his love for mankind, written in a casual manner. Enjoy!

Christmas Song

She was his girl, he was her boyfriend
She'd be his wife and make him her husband
A surprise on the way, any day, any day
One healthy little giggling dribbling baby boy
The wise men came, three made their way
To shower him with love while he lay in the hay
Shower him with love,
Love was all around.

Not very much of his childhood was known
Kept his mother Mary worried, always out on his own
He met another Mary who for a reasonable fee,
Less than reputable was known to be.
His heart full of love,
Love was all around.

When Jesus Christ was nailed to his tree
Said "Oh, Daddy, Oh I can see how it all soon will be
I came to shed a little light on this darkening scene
Instead I fear I've spilled
The blood of our children all around."

So I'm told, so the story goes, the people he knew
Were less than goldenhearted
Gamblers and robbers, drinkers and jokers,
All soul searchers
like you and me.

Rumors insisted he soon would be,
For his deviations, taken into custody
By the authorities less informed than he.
Drinkers and jokers all soul searchers
Searching for love,
Love was all around.

Preparations were made for his celebration day
He said "eat this bread and think of it as me
Drink this wine and dream it will be
The blood of our children all around"

Father up above, why in all this anger
Do you fill me up with love,
Love was all around
Father up above, why in all this hatred
Do you fill me up with love
Fill me love
And the blood of our children's all around.
