Track Name: St. Lucia/Night of Silence
Nighttime walks heavily, ‘round hearth and cottage
On earth that sun forgot, shadows are falling
Our dim house then grows bright,
lit by the Queen of Light
Ah, St. Lucia, ah, St. Lucia

Though night is vast and still, you'll hear her singing
In all the silent rooms, rustling and winging
Clad in her garment white, wearing a crown of light,
Ah, St. Lucia, ah, St. Lucia

Cold are the people, winter of life
We tremble in shadows this cold, endless night
Frozen in the snow lie roses sleeping;
Flowers that will echo the sunrise
Fire of hope is our only warmth,
Weary its flame will be dying soon

Voice in the distance, call in the night:
On wind you enfold us you speak of the light
Gentle on the ear you whisper softly;
Rumours of a dawn so embracing,
Breathless love awaits darkened souls,
Soon will we know of the morning.

(Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
'Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child
Holy infant, so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, holy night,
wondrous star, lend thy light;
with the angels let us sing,
Alleluia to our King;
Christ the Saviour is born,
Christ the Saviour is born.)

(Peace, peace, peace on Earth,
and goodwill toward all
This is our time for love
This is our time for joy
Now let us all sing together
For peace, peace, peace on Earth)

Darkness will soon take flight, hope be abiding
These words she speaks to us, wonderful tidings
Daylight shall come again, rosily risen
Ah, St. Lucia, ah, St. Lucia,

Sankta Lucia, Santa Lucia!
Track Name: Kissing the Christmas Killer
I was heaven sent
Traded for the words I swore that
Every piece of me would still belong
Forever and a day
To someone who created
Whatever there may be,
'Ever there may be

You came along
Now I'm going all against the
Promises that I made, and here I am
Falling for your love
Or am I lost in heaven
I don't know any more
Don't know any more

+Judgement will be made
On a Christmas day
Hiding in the snow, he's prying me

"Toys if you've been good
Knives if you have not"
Better steal a kiss 'fore I'll be gone
I'll be gone

+REPEAT
Track Name: Gloria
Gloria, gloria, gloria
en las alturas a Dios,
y en la tierra paz para aquellos
que aman el Señor.
