Track Name: Where Is My Guiding Star?
I've been in the fields
watching over the flocks all of the night

I haven't heard
any trumpets or seen any heavenly lights

And night after night
I look into the sky
and I wonder

Where is my host of angels
where is my guiding star?
How long do I need to go
after already coming this far
I've been waiting by the tree
being as good as I know how to be
but it's been so long
and I just wanna see
what you got for me

I've been doing the math
and burning the candles all of the night

I've been hitting the books
making sure that the numbers and figures are right

but oh burning star
how I wonder where you are
oh I wonder

Where is my host of angels
where is my guiding star?
How long do I need to go
after already coming this far
I've been waiting by the tree
being as good as I know how to be
but it's been so long
and I just wanna see
what you got for me
Track Name: Tangled and Twisted
I've seen it, I've done it, I've lived it
It's the same old thing
You take me, you break me, you shake me
Just lights on a string
I'm tangled, I'm twisted,
I'm loveless, I'm listless
I'm telling you that I have light to give

The tinsel is taking
Everyone's eyes off me
The snow globe can shake it
But it ain't got nothing on me
I'm tangled, I'm twisted
I'm loveless, I'm listless
I'm telling you that I have light to give

I'm gonna tell you, so you better listen
You're gonna see me shine, you're gonna see me glisten

The topper is sitting so proudly
On top of the tree
The popcorn is strung up and strung out
For all to see
I'm tangled, I'm twisted
I'm loveless, I'm listless
I'm telling you that
I have light to give

I'm gonna tell you, so you better listen
You're gonna see me shine, you're gonna see me glisten

I'm tangled, I'm twisted
I'm loveless, I'm listless
I'm telling you
That's no way to live

Spent most of my life
Sittin' in decay
Could you take a little time
Puttin' me away
So this time next year
Could you sing a little for me
Cause I'm the one that lights the way to your
Christmas tree
Track Name: 'Twas In the Moon of Wintertime
"Twas in the moon of winter-time
When all the birds had fled
That mighty Gitchi Manitou
Send angel choirs instead
Before their light the stars grew dim
And wandering hunters heard the hymn:
"Jesus your king is born, Jesus is born
In excelsis gloria"

Within a lodge of broken bark
The tender babe was found
A ragged robe of rabbit skin
Enwrapped his beauty round
But as the hunter braves drew nigh
The angel song rang loud and high
"Jesus your king is born, Jesus is born
In excelsis gloria"

The earliest moon of wintertime
Is not so round and fair
As was the ring of glory
On the helpless infant there
The chiefs from far before him knelt
With gifts of fox and beaver pelt
"Jesus your king is born, Jesus is born
In excelsis gloria"

O children of the forest tree
O sons of Manitou
The holy child of earth and heaven
Is born today for you
Come kneel before the radiant boy
Who brings you beauty, peace, and joy
"Jesus your king is born, Jesus is born
In excelsis gloria"
Track Name: Consolation of Israel
I heard about a man
Who lived in Jerusalem
And he was waiting to be consoled
He did not trust in Rome

He did not overthrow
He was waiting to be consoled
With wonder in his weary eyes
He took the child in his hands
And spoke to him as if he were a man

O sovereign Lord of me
Just as you promised me
You have consoled me and I close my eyes in peace
For you have shown to me my every sorrow carried
This tender shoot will crush the dragon with his feet.

And there is a man
Who lives in a desert land
And he is waiting to be consoled
He does not trust in gold
Or the shedding of the goods he holds
He just wants to be consoled.

This little child will build the wall on which all men will rise and fall
And a sword will pierce your own soul too
This little child will break the wall and he will fully break my fall
This double edged sword will pierce your own soul too

A Light to light the way for
Those yet far away
A Light to shine away on
Those who will draw near
Track Name: How The Years Go Quickly By
Nowadays they make our clothes and shoes
So they only last a year or two
And now it's all
Replaceable
So everything
Keeps on changing, changing

Pictures hung up neatly on the wall
I can't remember who they are at all
So how can I
Forget myself
If everything
Keeps on changing,
Keeps on changing
Keeps on changing

(Hanging up old Christmas lights)
(That silence of a winter night)
(How the years go quickly by)

Grandma gave us ornaments each year
My Christmas Dragon reminds me of her
But this year I didn't even get a tree
And everything
Keeps on changing

Sing a song and dance around the tree
While Grandpa tells us what it's like to be
Living in a world you don't know
Cause everything
Keeps on changing
Keeps on changing
Keeps on changing

(Hanging up old Christmas lights)
(That silence of a winter night)
(How the years go quickly by)

Long ago they set aside some days
For us to always do something the same
But what is to
Become of us
If we spend those days
Only changing
Only changing
And we keep on changing

(Hanging up old Christmas lights)
(That silence of a winter night)
(Glass of Egg Nog at my side)
(How the years go quickly by)
