Track Name: On My Mind
Another years almost up my friend,
time to get back as one again,
In this cold hour, cause its already snowing
Give up our sinful ways, got to love this special day
By the log fire, cause its already glowing

Christmas is on my mind, cause Christmas is burning bright
Oh, Christmas, forever it will shine
The kisses, mince pies and wine
Don't miss this, this special time
this Christmas come shiver by my side

Steve the snowman has got his veg,
but his scarfs caught in his sledge
Throw a snowball at a grumpy man
Santa slipped up, he banged his head
As the birds look out for bread,
This Christmas feed a lonely lamb

Go shine, Go shine on, Go shine on all your friends
Burn a pine cone for your lady
Think of Jesus on his winters day
Track Name: Silent Night
Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant, tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, Holy night
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord at thy birth
Jesus, Lord at thy birth.

Silent night, Holy night
Shepherds quake, at the sight
Glories stream from heaven above
Heavenly, hosts sing Hallelujah.
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born.
Track Name: Go Tell It On A Mountain
While shepherds kept their watching
Over silent flocks by night,
Behold throughout the heavens,
There shone a holy light:
Go, Tell It On a Mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere;
Go, Tell It On a Mountain
That Jesus Christ is born.

The shepherds feared and trembled
When lo! above the earth
Rang out the angel chorus
That hailed our Saviour's birth:
Go, Tell It On a Mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere;
Go, Tell It On a Mountain
That Jesus Christ is born.

Down in a lowly manger
Our humble Christ was born
And God send us salvation,
That blessed Christmas morn:
Go, Tell It On a Mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere;
Go, Tell It On a Mountain
That Jesus Christ is born.
Track Name: Christmas Is Coming
Christmas is coming get busy and thin
A time to be filled right up to the brim
With turkey and cranberry, gravy and veg
Let your tummies and hearts be well fed

A time for presents and songs by the fire
Be merry you children and mother and pa
For in the darkest and coldest time of the year
A saviour from heaven, to the song of the angels, appeared

Christmas is coming and another year
has blossomed and faded and gone in the wind
The snow is coming like rain from the stars
Soon on the rooftops and cars
Christmas is warming my heart

A star on the tree shines light on below
And angels a'hanging sing 'lo and behold'
Its jesus the saviour, the greatest of gifts
My every prayer and every wish

Christmas is coming and another year
has blossomed and faded and gone in the wind
The snow is coming like rain from the stars
Soon on the rooftops and cars
Christmas is warming my heart x2
Track Name: Dreaming Of My Race Car
Dreaming of my race car, yeah I was..

Too excited to sleep now,
So I l'll lie awake all night
Counting every second
till sunshine fills the sky

But slowly without knowing
I drift into my dreams
Behold, he is sleeping
I was just a child you see

Dreaming of my race, driving fast, and running free
I know that in the morning, I'll take the wheel my car and me
Will be driving till the street lights fill the sky
Exploring all the countries within a mile
Skidding round the parks and mountain sides
Zooming like the years go flying by
And I remember every one

Open up my eyes now
for a moment half awake
But in a flash I remember
its finally Christmas day
Fly over the ladder
race on down the stairs
And i find them in a second
my presents wrapped in red
Track Name: Still To Know
I don't know where we're going,
too soon to say
The roads all white, its snowing,
Wont be getting far today

The sky is gold but dark
With your hand in mine
I wish we had a place to stop
And rest up for a little while

I hear the wind, it whispers
Some luck is on its way
My heart, it warms and flickers
But still not sure what to say

So baby dry your eyes
But I understand if you wont
I know I said we'll be fine
but i don't really know
That i don't really know

The sun will soon be setting
over the hills and trees
Who knows what my angels seeing
if she'll stay next to me

The bodies cold and tired
the heart beat slow
how it all ends you decide
Cause we are still to know
Track Name: Bethlehem Waltz (Live)
O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight

For Christ is born of Mary
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love
O morning stars together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God the King
And Peace to men on earth

How silently, how silently
The wondrous gift is given
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His heaven
No ear may hear His coming
But in this world of sin
Where meek souls will receive him still
The dear Christ enters in

O holy Child of Bethlehem
Descend to us, we pray
Cast out our sin and enter in
Be born to us today
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell
O come to us, abide with us
Our Lord Emmanuel
O come to us, abide with us
Our Lord Emmanuel
Track Name: Thing Called Love (Live)
If you only had one song to sing,
of the thing you call love
What song would you use the words to say
what you're thinking of?
I hear all the time of a thing that we all call love

A beautiful face can make you feel it,
or a beautiful heart
Someone who's been there all of your days
and the times that were hard
And I hear all the time, of a thing that we all call love
I hear all the time of a thing that we all call love

Or maybe it means whatever you feel, whatever you want
Maybe we use that precious word more often than not
Cause I hear all the time of a thing that we all call love
And I hear all the time of a thing that we all call love

I think I'd just sing amazing grace, a tune so sweet
to lay down your life for somebody else, someone like me
And I hear all the time of a thing that we all call love
I hear all the time of a thing that we all call love
Track Name: Christmas Is Coming (Live- version 2)
Christmas is coming get busy and thin
A time to be filled right up to the brim
With turkey and cranberry, gravy and veg
Let your tummies and hearts be well fed

A time for presents and songs by the fire
Be merry you children and mother and pa
For in the darkest and coldest time of the year
A saviour from heaven, to the song of the angels, appeared

Christmas is coming and another year
has blossomed and faded and gone in the wind
The snow is coming like rain from the stars
Soon on the rooftops and cars
Christmas is warming my heart

A star on the tree shines light on below
And angels a'hanging sing 'lo and behold'
Its jesus the saviour, the greatest of gifts
My every prayer and every wish

Christmas is coming and another year
has blossomed and faded and gone in the wind
The snow is coming like rain from the stars
Soon on the rooftops and cars
Christmas is warming my heart
Track Name: In The Bleak Midwinter (Live- With Friends)
In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

Our God, heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign.
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.

Angels and archangels may have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim thronged the air;
But His mother only, in her maiden bliss,
Worshipped the beloved with a kiss.

What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him... give my heart.
