It Could Happen Again

This song is by Collin Raye and appears on the album Christmas-The Gift (1996) and on the compilation Christmas: 16 Biggest Hits (2001).

Johnny Cash intro....

"One frozen night in 1914,
At the height of WWI,
The unthinkable happened.
All along the entire western front,
The British and German soldiers
Lay down they're weapons
In an unofficial ceast fire
To celebrate Christmas Eve together.
They exchanged gifts
And saw each other as brothers.
And that piece lasted for two more days,
When they were ordered back to battle.
In those few days, though,
Men remembered the true meaning of christmas
Amongst the devastation,
And it's a story that should never be forgotten..."

Through the smoke-filled night
Silence rolls from both sides
Aross a bloody battlefield
It was a cold Christmas Eve
In 1914
For those who were there it seemed unreal

As time was still the Spirit moved the soldiers
To lay down they're arms
Raise they're voice in song
And pretend for awhile
The war was over

If it could happen then,
It could happen again
A world torn apart
To join hands and hearts
To celebrate His birth
And peace on this Earth
If for one magic night
We could finally give a reason not to fight
Maybe there's a chance ..
This time it might last

As opposing sides approached
Through broken words they spoke
It wasn't long before they felt at ease
They shared they're cigarettes
What they had they used as gifts
They didn't feel like enemies.

With candles lit,
They stood shoulder to shoulder
And on that field they found
True common ground
And as they prayed
They dreamed the war was over

If it could happen then,
It could happen again
A world torn apart
To join hands and hearts
To celebrate His birth
And peace on this Earth
If for one magic night
We could finally give a reason not to fight
Maybe there's a chance ..
This time it might last

If it could happen then,
It could happen again...
