HERE  IS  CHRISTMAS
Written by  Ann Wilson / Nancy Wilson / Richie Zito
Performed by  Ann & Nancy Wilsons as the Lovemongers
The night was black and velvet, the stars were all around
A stranger landed lightly on the frosty ground
His eyes were wide with wonder, filled with stars and space
He'd searched the heavens over till he'd found this place
A sweet and snowy carol echoed in his ears
A song so feint and distant, so strong it drew him here

Here is Christmas, come inside
Here is Christmas, far and wide
A thousand candles burning bright
Here is Christmas shining in our eyes

He wandered through the city, lost in the shopping crowds
People rushing, people pushing, he watched without a sound
Cash machines were singing about the biggest year
But above this strange confusion, the carol still rang clear
Then he saw a raggedy man with an ancient mandolin
And he knew he'd found the answer when the song began again

Here is Christmas, come inside
Here is Christmas, far and wide
A thousand candles burning bright
Here is Christmas shining in our eyes

Here is Christmas, come inside
Here is Christmas, far and wide
A million candles burning bright
Here is Christmas shining in our eyes
This song was one I searched long and  hard for.  I always have loved Christmas music, and a song about a special Christmas song that a galactic visitor searched long and hard for appealed to me even if the premise strains credibility just a little.  Suspending disbelief is OK this time of year.
