AN ANGEL CAME DOWN / AN ANGEL RETURNED (Gruber / Robert Kinkel / Paul O'Neill / Jon Oliva) Trans-Siberian Orchestra - 1996 An angel came down one night to the earth A mission from God to find out the worth Of everything that His children had done Since that winter night, the birth of His son And then a sound filled the night in the cold winter air And in the midst of his flight it was holding him there And as he looked towards the Earth for the source of this sound On that cold winter night, it was pulling him down To bring something back this angel was told That no one could touch, but angels could hold So on that night, when the sky had cleared Among all the stars an angel appeared And then a sound filled the night in the cold winter air And in the midst of his flight it was holding him there And as he looked towards the Earth for the source of this sound On that cold winter night, it was pulling him down An angel returned that night through the sky But time it was short, he had to decide And so as he flew back over the land A gift for his Lord was there in his hand It was the glow of a light, it was the heart of a song It was the tear of a child where they never belonged It was the wish of a soul on an old neon light And the Lord smiled at him on that cold winter night Kyrie among nations Kyrie among nations Kyrie among nations Here the bells ring through the night Kyrie among nations Kyrie among nations Kyrie among nations Hear as they ring through the night Listen to the bells as they ring, listen to the message they bring Listen to the sound as they sing as one voice in the night Hoping that we'll all understand every dream we have's in our hands And for every bell may they ring all through the night Kyrie among nations Kyrie among nations Kyrie among nations Hear as they ring through the night Kyrie among nations Kyrie among nations Kyrie among nations Here as they ring through the night Listen to the bells as they ring, listen to the message they bring Listen to the sound as they sing as one voice in the night Hoping that we'll all understand every dream we have's in our hands And for every bell may they ring all through your life And so with his story over. and our bottle nearly through I asked, "Did this really happen?" He swore every word was true Then he said, "I see you're puzzled, for your mind tells you to doubt me That my story can't be true, but your heart tells you it might be" He then asked, did it entertain me and I admitted it had charm Then he said, "Perhaps you have learned something, or at worst I've done no harm" Then he rose up from his chair and he said it's time that he should leave "But may God keep and protect you this and every Christmas Eve" Then he left through the front door and I ran out to ask him back But he was already gone and stranger still, he left no tracks So I walked back to my home recalling all I'd heard and seen And for the first time since my childhood, that night I dreamed a Christmas dream Merry Christmas!
