Gold and Green

Album: Gold and Green (2009)
  • Christmas trees in window panes
    Shimmering where tinsel hangs
    And the butter light of candle sticks
    Chases snowflakes off the breaks

    The postman, is shivering
    With packages he's delivering
    Ribbons pull and try to hide
    Wishes waiting warm inside

    And everything looks better in gold and green
    The lights on the trees shining all through the city
    Are the prettiest I've ever seen
    And the world decides to sleep safe tonight

    The carolers, they sing Noel
    Silent Night and Silver Bells
    And all around you, snow will fall
    Like confetti stars, and paper dolls

    And everything looks better in gold and green
    The lights on the trees in the eyes of our children
    Are the prettiest I've ever seen
    And the world decides to sleep safe tonight

    The first Noel, the angels did say
    Was to certain poor shepherds
    In fields where they lay

    Everything looks better in gold and green
    (Everything looks better in gold and green)
    Everything looks better in gold and green
    (Everything looks better in gold and green)
    Everything looks better
    Everything looks better Writer/s: JENNIFER NETTLES, KRISTIAN BUSH
