"Silent Night" as written by Bruce Cockburn and Pd Traditional....
Silent night, broken night
All is fallen when you take your flight
I found some hate for you
Just for show
You found some love for me
Thinking I'd go
Don't keep me from crying to sleep
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, moonlit night
Nothing's changed
Nothing is right
I should be stronger than weeping alone
You should be weaker than sending me home
I can't stop you fighting to sleep
Sleep in heavenly peace

    General CommentI first heard this song last Christmas, in an empty house, after a horrible break-up... sent SUCH a shiver down my spine... it's a really touching and beautifully sung track, but it's REALLY chilling.

    General Commentjust amazing...

    When I heard it the first time, I was like "ok, cool, silent night", but when I heard the lyrics, I could feel the lonliness that she was singing of, I feel it every time I hear it. I definitely think that it's because it's pretty much just her singing without much instrumental backup. Thats my $0.02 :)

    General CommentI was just always curious what "You found some love for me
    Thinking I'd go" meant. I was thinking that it meant that when he realized that she was actually leaving he found feelings for her again, but im not sure. Any thoughts? Thanks :)

    General CommentYeh I think thats what she is trying to say, like when he thought she was going to leave, he finds love for her to blackmailing her into not leaving!
