Silent Night...based on a true story
The morters exploded
and bullets flew past
as soldeirs where dyeing all through the night
Then just before midnight
not a sound could be heard
as if each side was expecting the worst
When suddenly, unexpectedly a voice could be heard, quite clear and loud singing 'Silent Night' what a beautiful sound
Whispers and murmers could be heard all all around as each side
started singing this wonderful song
A truce was made that historic night as two days was celebrated in christmas cheer
Gifts from home where exchanged amongest foes but they knew in there hearts they could never be
In that one singular moment of space and time there was peace on earth in no mans land
