Salvation Song (Remastered)

from Ragged Christmas Crackers by The Ragged Flags

supported by


It’s Christmas Eve now in the city
No strangers just friends yet to meet
Waited all day to drink our cares away
And then stagger out into the street
The year it must come to an ending
We knew it would fail all along
List all the rules for these fine festive fools
As they sing you their salvation song

We dance our dreams in the gutter
I walk with you stuck to my side
Howling all night midst the bright fairy lights
And the smell of communion wine
These feelings of Christmas are fleeting
The days that we’d pay to prolong
No guarantee of a fine melody
For these singers of salvation songs

We are our own congregation
A voice that we raise through the throng
The night it was cold but the stories we told
As they flowed in your heart kept you warm
If you’ve found a love that sustains you
A place where you feel you belong
If no one else heard would you whisper the words
To the singers of salvation songs?

It’s Christmas Eve now in the city
And everyone’s drifting away
Heading back home you know you’re not alone
As the churches ring out Christmas Day
When battling days are before you
When all that you know has gone wrong
Raise up your glass in a toast to the last
Living singers of salvation songs

Raise up your glass in a toast to the last
Living singers of salvation songs
