A Christmas Wish
 
A Christmas Wish
Lyrics by Amber Hutchings
Music by Carl West
A Christmas Wish was written by Carl West and Amber Hutchings. The song came to mind after hearing several stories on the news about homeless people at Christmas time and families loosing loved ones around the holidays.

Carl and Amber first met during the recording process for Carl's debut album "All Over the Map". Amber contributed to the lyrics of "Edge of Life" and is also heard on "Fear of it All" and "Warning Signs" from the album. Carl and Amber recently collaborated to record "A Christmas Wish" as a reminder of what the true spirit of Christmas is all about.

Verse 1
Cold, alone, it's Christmas morning
Child in pain, 'cause no one's there
Bells are ringing soft and lonely
Calling for someone to care

Chorus
I believe we should be listening               Ring the Bells, It's Christmas
I believe we can do more                           Ring the Bells, It's Christmas
Can you hear the bells are ringing           Ring the Bells, It's Christmas
Christmas bells on Christmas morn         Ring the Bells, It's Christmas morn

Verse 2
Child of war, her Father's missing
In a land where Heroes die
Does he know it's Christmas morning
In his home of sand and sky

Chorus
I believe we should be listening               Ring the Bells, It's Christmas
I believe we can do more                           Ring the Bells, It's Christmas
Can you hear the bells are ringing           Ring the Bells, It's Christmas
Christmas Bells on Christmas Morn         Ring the Bells, It's Christmas Morn

Bridge
Help the children and the poor
Lift their spirits high
Help the poor and broken souls
Have joy on Christmas morn
