Sheye Lyr Add: Nothing But a Child (Steve Earle) (1) Lyr Add: NOTHING BUT A CHILD (Steve Earle) 05 Nov 97

Another Christmas favourite (complements of Steve Earle):

Nothing But a Child

Once upon a time, in a far off land
Wise men saw a sign and set out 'cross the sand
songs of praise to sing, they travelled day and night
Precious gifts to bring, guided by the light
They chased a brand new star, ever towards the West
Across the mountains far, and when in came to rest
They 'scarce believed their eyes, they'd come so far and wide
And this miracle they prized was nothing but a child

Nothing but a child can wash those tears away
Or guide a weary world into the light of day
And nothing but a child can help erase those miles
So once again we all can be children for a while

All around the world, in every little town
Every day is heard, a precious little sound
And every mother kind and every father proud
Looks down in awe to find another chance allowed

Nothing but a child...
