Spirit of Christmas
by The Moody Blues



The star of Bethlehem was shining
Across a Palestinian sky
The Church of the Nativity was crying
And we all looked on, who can tell me why?

Where are the wise men when they're wanted?
Nowhere to be seen, like thieves in the night
The desert is drifting ever closer
The world won't sleep well tonight

Where did the spirit of Christmas go?
Lost in the desert or covered in snow
Where did the spirit of Christmas go?
If you can find it, please let me know

The shepherds are in the fields sleeping
Waiting for a sign to light up the sky
Heaven is moving ever closer
The promise of a child born on high

Where did the spirit of Christmas go?
Lost in the desert or covered in snow
Where did the spirit of Christmas go?
If you can find it, please let me know

Looking for an answer that escapes me
(Love set me free)
If there is a reason, let me know
(Whoa)
Drifting slow through time and space not knowing where we are
How did we ever get this far?

Where did the spirit of Christmas go?
Lost in the desert or covered in snow
Where did the spirit of Christmas go?
If you can find it, please let me know

Where did the spirit of Christmas go?
Lost in the desert or covered in snow
Where did the spirit of Christmas go?
If you can find it, please let me know
