1. "River" by Sarah McLachlan (my new favorite)

[small]I wish I had a river

I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long

I would teach my feet to fly

Oh I wish I had a river

I could skate away on

I made my baby cry[/small]

2. "Pretty Paper" by Chris Isaak

[small]Crowded street, busy feet hustle by him

Downtown shoppers, Christmas is nigh

There he sits all alone on the sidewalk

He's just hoping he won't pass him by[/small]

3. "Washington Square" by Chris Isaak

[small]I can picture you here last Christmas

I know you're so far from home

But you know that you're never alone[/small]

4. "Looking For Christmas" by Clint Black

[small]I'm looking for Christmas,

I've gotta find Christmas,

Flying back in my mind

Does anyone know of this Christmas,

A long ago Christmas

Sleigh bells ringing, carolers singing

Only bringing the long traveled message of love.[/small]

5. "Do They Know It's Christmas" by Band Aid

[small]And in our world of plenty

we can spread a smile of joy

Throw your arms around the world

at Christmastime[/small]

6. "My Christmas Prayer" by Saint Etienne

[small]Oh Lord, the snow is falling

and the whole world kneels to pray,

for tomorrow brings the dawning

of another Christmas Day. [/small]

7. "Here Is Christmas" by Ann and Nancy Wilson

[small]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[/small]

8. "Christmas Time Again" by Steve McDonald and Hollie Smith

[small]Through life's struggle

the weak and the strong

all God's children should know

if there's one day

that we can all get along

It's Christmas Time[/small]

9. "Christmas Day" by Dido

[small]The last words I heard him say...

were the last words I ever heard him say..

I shall return for you, my love

On Christmas Day[/small]

10. "25th December" by Everything But the Girl

[small]And I see forests and its the 25th of December,

and my old man plays the piano for Christmas,

He plays the piano for Christmas,

And we're all there, all the aunties and uncles,

and the angel's on the top of the tree,

Up there on the top of the tree,

And I never, no I never ever realized[/small]
