“Joy and Goodwill” Lyrics

We may take a little breather after all the stuff we published lately. The full Christmas 09 album can be grabbed directly here. It’s 6 songs, including one in the original German. It was a lot of fun to make, and we definitely challenged ourselves to get it done on a timeline. Anyway, here are the words to our last Christmas original which is track 5 on that work of art.

“Joy and Goodwill”

Traffic and long lines
A sign of the times
No chance to breathe
No gifts on Christmas Eve

Just another holiday
Where revelry is on display

Joy and goodwill are the tidings still
Peace from Heaven to man
Good news to all new-born in a stall
Peace from man to man

Meaning has been lost
Along with rising cost
Simple contentedness
A season made for rest

Joy and goodwill are the tidings still
Peace from Heaven to man
Good news to all new-born in a stall
Peace from man to man

The wonder is gone
We had when once young
With hastening speed
We made it…
The wonder is gone
We had when once young
With hastening speed
We made it
Just another holiday…

Joy and goodwill are the tidings still
Peace from Heaven to man
Good news to all new-born in a stall
Peace from man to man

And with that, the creative portion of the Yuletide is complete. Goodnight.
