When the cold has ahold on you,
it takes everything you have to keep on pushing through.
Peace is what I wish for you.
When there’s no one else but you, alone in a crowded room.
Peace, a calm you can trust.
You’re breathing in that stardust.

When the world seems a hardened place,
you’re doing everything you can to love the human race.
Peace will be your saving grace.
When you have no other choice, when your heart cannot rejoice.
Peace, a warmth in your soul.
You, yourself celestial.

Northern star, show your light.
Give us peace tonight.
Peace on earth, peace on earth
Peace on earth tonight.
