Frozen statues in the cold, washed in moonlight blue and gold.

Mary's babe in plastic hay, quiet wonder on her face.

Mary, you look so serene, far too pretty, much too clean.

Of all the dirt and dust and shame, every burning labor pain,

I am real.

Don't turn me into memory or myth.

Let me be real. Real.

Shepherds bending to the ground, Bethlehem is safe and sound.

Like you are unaware December comes with so much trouble

But every minute, every hour, every day.

You are real, real

More than a memory,
	F#
More than a story.
