And you ask me what I want this year
And I try to make this kind and clear
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days
'cause I don't need boxes wrapped in strings
And desire and love and empty things
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
'cause everyone is forgiven now
'cause tonight's the night the world begins again

And it's someplace simple where we could live
And something only you can give
And that's faith and trust and peace while we're alive
And the one poor child that saved this world
And there's 10 million more who probably could
If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them

So take these words
And sing out loud
'cause everyone is forgiven now
'cause tonight's the night the world begins again

I wish everyone was loved tonight
And somehow stop this endless fight
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
'cause everyone is forgiven now
'cause tonight's the night the world begins again
'cause tonight's the night the world begins again

    I believe this song is about christ and his impact upon our world. It's a christmas song - my christmas song - has been since I first heard it. It's also an easter song - the world begins again - no matter the month. As far as the 10 million more children - we are all children of god and we number in the millions. This song means alot to me in many ways.

    I love this song and think it's really sweet. The only part that really bugs me is when he says "And the one poor child that saved this world, and there's ten million more who probably could, if we all just stopped and said a prayer for them." Correct me if I'm wrong, but he is meaning Jesus when he sings that line. If I'm right about that, then he is wrong about the 10 million more. Jesus wasn't just the son of man, he is also the son of God. He is perfect. He is the only one who could have died for the sins of everyone in this world, because he is the only one who never sinned.
