Song Lyrics

Icicle Lights and Taxi Cabs

My first ever Christmas song, and if you read my recent post on Christmas spirit, you can probably guess that it’ll be a little depressing.

Icicle Lights and Taxi Cabs

The city sleeps awaiting the dawn
The motions are there, but the magic is gone
And I don’t know what I grieve
Maybe just another lonely Christmas Eve

The silent snow falls and I long to be real
The spirit I know is there, but cannot feel
The homeless and barflies are keeping tabs
Icicle lights and taxi cabs

Carolers sing their last refrain
Happy couples board a frozen train
I walk 10 miles, 20 I can’t be sure
But it’s amazing how much I can endure

The silent snow falls and I long to be real
The spirit I know is there, but cannot feel
The homeless and barflies are keeping tabs
Icicle lights and taxi cabs

Somewhere in the night a king is born
A blessing to this world of mourn
And the wounds of the lost are tender still
And I’ve a need that only you can fill

Every song about love as bitter as the frost
It’s like a Christmas for the lost
Just praying for peace to take the lead
It would be a silent night indeed

The silent snow falls and I long to be real
The spirit I know is there, but cannot feel
The homeless and barflies are keeping tabs
Icicle lights and taxi cabs

Somewhere in the night a king is born
A blessing to this world of mourn
And the wounds of the lost are tender still
And I’ve a need that only you can fill
And I’ve a need that only you can fill

1 thought on “Icicle Lights and Taxi Cabs”

  1. That is really sad… but also beautiful. I think Christmas can be a really hard time of year for people–especially folks missing someone who used to be there. And even though I know (from your previous post) that’s not where you’re coming from particularly, I think you’ve captured a bit of that loneliness with your usual poetry. Can’t wait to hear it sung. (Maybe Thursday?)
