I am in the Christmas kind of mood. But at the same time, there are many different emotions that come into play at this time of year for me. For one, December is the month that many of my family members have died. Christmas is a time for family, and without a mother or a father, it can be hard for me. So today, there is this song that Coldplay released this year and I love it. It's not the same kind of pain, but it still shows so much pain but also triumph this Christmas.
Christmas night, another fight Tears we cried a flood Got all kinds of poison in Poison in my blood I took my feet To Oxford Street Trying to right a wrong Just walk away Those windows say But I can't believe she's gone When you're still waiting for the snow to fall Doesn't really feel like Christmas at all Up above candles on air flicker Oh they flicker and they float But I'm up here holding on To all those chandeliers of hope Like some drunken Elvis singing I go singing out of tune Saying how I always loved you darling And I always will Oh when you're still waiting for the snow to fall Doesn't really feel like Christmas at all Still waiting for the snow to fall It doesn't really feel like Christmas at all Those Christmas lights Light up the street Down where the sea and city meet May all your troubles soon be gone Oh Christmas lights keep shining on Those Christmas lights Light up the street Maybe they'll bring her back to me Then all my troubles will be gone Oh Christmas lights keep shining on Oh Christmas lights Light up the street Light up the fireworks in me May all your troubles soon be gone Those Christmas lights keep shining on
Because no matter how much we are going through this holiday season, those Christmas lights will keep on shining all night long. They will keep on shining to show us that the love that comes with the season is still shining on, no matter how much we are going through. I have spent a few days with this song on a loop, I love it.
Music has always been something that I can get lost in, that I can find a home in when I'm feeling alone. Music is also something that helps give me memories. I will share some of these memories someday on here...I promise! Music also expresses so much more than the words that are written as the lyrics. I thank God everyday for the gift of music.
So enjoy this beautiful song. Below is the link to the music video :)
