Trans-Siberian Orchestra An Angel Returned

An angel returned

That night through the sky

But time it was short

He had to decide

And so as he flew

Back over the land

A gift for his Lord

Was there in his hand

It was the glow of a light

It was the heart of a song

It was the tear of a child

Where they never belonged

It was the wish of a soul

On an old neon light

And the Lord smiled at him

On that cold winter night

Hear as they ring through the night

Kyrie among nations

Kyrie among nations

Kyrie among nations

Here the bells ring through the night

Kyrie among nations

Kyrie among nations

Kyrie among nations

Hear as they ring through the night

Kyrie among nations

Kyrie among nations

Kyrie among nations

Hear as they ring through the night

Listen to the bells as they ring

Listen to the message they bring

Listen to the sound

As they sing as one voice in the night

Hoping that we’ll all understand

Every dream we have’s in our hands

And for every bell

May they ring all through the night

Kyrie among nations

Kyrie among nations

Kyrie among nations

Hear as they ring through the night

Kyrie among nations

Kyrie among nations

Kyrie among nations

Here as they ring through the night

Listen to the bells as they ring

Listen to the message they bring

Listen to the sound as they sing

As one voice in the night

Hoping that we’ll all understand

Every dream we have’s in our hands

And for every bell

May they ring all through your life

AND SO WITH HIS STORY OVER

AND OUR BOTTLE NEARLY THROUGH

I ASKED, DID THIS REALLY HAPPEN?

HE SWORE EVERY WORD WAS TRUE

THEN HE SAID I SEE YOU’RE PUZZLED

FOR YOUR MIND TELLS YOU TO DOUBT ME

THAT MY STORY CAN’T BE TRUE

BUT YOUR HEART TELLS YOU, IT MIGHT BE

HE THEN ASKED, DID IT ENTERTAIN ME

AND I ADMITTED IT HAD CHARM

THEN HE SAID PERHAPS YOU HEAVE LEARNED SOMETHING

OR AT WORST I’VE DONE NO HARM

THEN HE ROSE UP FROM HIS CHAIR

AND HE SAID IT’S TIME THAT HE SHOULD LEAVE

BYT MAY GOD KEEP AND PROTECT YOU

THIS AND EVERY CHRISTMAS EVE

THEN HE LEFT THROUGH THE FRONT DOOR

AND I RAN OUT TO ASK HIM BACK

BUT HE WAS ALREADY GONE

AND STRANGER STILL HE LEFT NO TRACKS

SO I WALKED BACK TO MY HOME

RECALLING ALL I’VE HEARD AND SEEN

AND FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE MY CHILDHOOD

THAT NIGHT I DREAMED A CHRISTMAS DREAM

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
