Christmas Song
Live Feb. 18, 1997
Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds

First post of an occasional feature here - Audioblog. Around Christmas time I always think of this song. Whether or not you celebrate or what you believe, it to me is one of the best descriptions of the basis of Christianity and the message of Jesus that gets lost in both the doctrine of religion and the commercialization of the holiday. My Christmas wish is for people to see past their religion to the core of what each of the prophets convey - it's a simple feeling that we've all shared and should live life by.

Lyrics

She was his girl; he was her boyfriend
She'd be his wife and make him her husband
A surprise on the way, any day, any day
One healthy little giggling dribbling baby boy
The wise men came, three made their way
To shower him with love
While he lay in the hay
Shower him with love love love
Love love love
Love love is all around

Not very much of his childhood was known
Kept his mother Mary worried
Always out on his own
Met another Mary who for a reasonable fee
Less than reputable was known to be
His heart full of love love love
Love love love
Love love is all around

When Jesus Christ was nailed to his tree
Said "oh, Daddy-o, I can see how it all soon will be
I came to shed a little light on this darkening scene
Instead I fear I've spilled the blood of my children all around"
The blood of my children all around
The blood of my children all around

So I'm told, so the story goes
The people he knew were
Less than golden hearted
Gamblers and robbers
Drinkers and jokers, all soul searchers
Like you and me
Like you and me

Rumors insisted that he soon would be
For his deviations
Taken into custody
By the authorities less informed than he
Drinkers and jokers, all soul searchers
Searching for love love love
Love love love
Love love is all around

Preparations were made
For his celebration day
He said:
Eat this bread and think of it as me
Drink this wine and dream it will be
The blood of our children all around
The blood of our children all around
The blood of our children all around
Father up above, why in all this hatred do you fill
Me up with love, love, love
Love love love
Love love love
Love love's all around
Father up above, why in all this anger do you fill
Me up with love, fill me love love love
Love love love
Love love love
Love love love
Love love love
Love love love
And the blood of our children all around
