That’s The Spirit

THAT’S THE SPIRIT

It’s easy —
what’s not to believe?
You feel it —
don’t you!? ‘Cause
the Mr. (Claus, that is) says
it’s in each of us!

Under the Whether Or Not To Believe

UNDER THE WHETHER OR NOT TO BELIEVE

True love can weather any storm
if only you believe
in the way love can transform.
True love can weather any storm
and keep two souls warm.
To this truth I will cleave:
true love can weather any storm
if only you believe.
