Bethlehem



I saw three kings riding through the dessert as the day begins,
"We bring great joy to the birth of a baby boy,
By the star we have been led,
To this place, " then someone said,
"The people that you're looking for have never been here at all",

I saw two birds, one was a hawk, the other was a dove,
One said, "I am war", the other one said, " I am love, "
As they flew up to the sky, they got too close to the sun,
And with a flash of light the dove fell to the ground;

Sometimes we never know, when it's time for letting go,
Last night I heard them say "No!
We will never let that happen again!"
But it's a long, long way from here to Bethlehem,
Yes it's a long, long way from here to Bethlehem;

I heard one man saying that the lion can lay down with the lamb,
But in the cage there's nothing left,
The lion has gone and the lamb is dead,
No one gets in or out, and to be heard they've got to shout,
That the words of the lord are written on the city walls;

I saw Saint Paul talking to the devil, like the best of friends,
They said "let's make a deal and bring this cursed war to an end",
As they stood there shaking hands,
The Devil signed his name to the plan,
After a couple of days there was nothing there at all,

Sometimes we never know, when it's time for letting go,
Last night I heard them say "No!
We will never let that happen again!"
But it's a long, long way from here to Bethlehem,
Yes it's a long, long way from here to Bethlehem;

Much has changed in the modern world,
There's no time for the long ago,
Many problems that we have,
Are from the Greatest story ever told,

And it's a long, long way, to Bethlehem,
It's a long, long way, to Bethlehem,
It's a long, long way, to Bethlehem,
It's a long, long way!
A Better World
