"Calvary" as written by and Ricky Ross....
It's late in the year
and the leaves are fallen down and swept clear
tonight I'm going to have to start thinking hard
about Christmas
How, I don't care
whether what we have ahppened here or there.
Something rather wonderful came into the sky just to please us

Night falls, still a broken step
this old mules legs
will take you many days from here
Tired limbs and ruddy cheeks
will bandage up you aching hands and feet

I don't need to know what everyone sees
different roads can take you where other paths lead
I'm not even trying to get as far as Calvary
Calvary

As the sun goes down
and the lights go up in the hilltop towns
The boys and girls are gathered and
ask to make a wish come true
I'm driving round some bleak mid-winter tinsle town
I see you sleeping at the bus top
Nothing but a sheet between the moon and you

A Baby comes, folks don't sleep
Those shepherds keep you up later than you meant to be
One child's grows and people notice
he's braking chains
and making poor folks' lives so heavenly
(the way it's meant to be)

I don't need to know what everyone sees
different roads will take you where other paths lead
I'm not even trying to get as far as Calvary
Calvary
Calvary
Calvary
