  • Lyrics
  • This song takes place in Europe on New Year's Eve 1939. With the party in full swing, a young man looks forward to kissing the girl who has been leading him on "Under a mistletoe moon;" the royals come out onto the palace balcony, and the crowd goes wild, nobody suspecting that in 9 months time they will be plunged into a years' long holocaust of unimaginable proportions, after which the world will never be the same again. >>
