One Bright Star

One child lives in a beautiful house
On a hill that overlooks all of the city
He finished his dinner and went off to bed
While a vision of a family danced in his head
Down a big empty hall to a cold empty room
He glanced at his bed but he just couldn't sleep
He went to his window and saw one bright star
It makes you feel connected wherever you are

Another child lives in a tiny apartment
By a boarded up building on a cold city block
His overworked mother and sick younger brother
Were both fast asleep on this cruel Christmas eve
So what more could you need than everything?
He slipped on his slippers and slipped down the hallway
He opened the window and saw the same star
You are connected whoever you are

A Christmas tree sits in the center of town
The vicious old blizzard could not bring it down
Through wind and through weather it still stayed together
It's star shone so bright there with no one around
so that the lost shall be found, that the hungry be fed
The homeless shall sleep 'neath a roof in a bed
The lonely of spirit, be near or be far
You are connected wherever you are
