a different kind of christmas lyrics – leann rimes

the lights around the christmas tree don’t burn as bright
and all around the world it isn’t a silent night
outside i hear the voices sing the sweetest sounds of caroling
but somehow there’s a sadness in the song
in our hearts we know that something’s wrong

[chorus:]

it’s a different kind of christmas
in a different kind of world
even though it looks the same

everything has changed
it’s a different kind of christmas

children opening gifts with wonder and surprise
i wish that i could still see through such innocent eyes
i used to feel so safe inside i had a place to run and hide
in my daddy’s arms i felt secure
no one can protect us anymore

[chorus:]

it’s a different kind of christmas
in a different kind of world
even though it looks the same

everything has changed
it’s a different kind of christmas

sending cards that talk of peace and love and cheer
oh that’s what we need if we’d only believe
it would be!

[chorus:]

it’s a different kind of christmas
in a different kind of world
even though it looks the same

everything has changed
it’s a different kind of christmas
