Song about a series of widespread unofficial ceasefires along the Western Front of the First World War around Christmas 1914.

 

Lyrics:

 

Silence

Oh, I remember the silence

On a cold winter day

After many months on the battlefield

And we were used to the violence

Then all the cannons went silent

And the snow fell

Voices sang to me from no man’s land

 

We are all, we are all, we are all, we are all friends

 

And today we’re all brothers

Tonight we’re all friends

A moment of peace in a war that never ends

Today we’re all brothers

We drink and unite

Now Christmas has arrived and the snow turns the ground white

Hear carols from the trenches, we sing O holy night

Our guns laid to rest among snowflakes

A Christmas in the trenches, a Christmas on the front far from home

 

Madness

Oh I remember the sadness

We were hiding our tears

In a foreign land where we faced our fears

We were soldiers

Carried the war on our shoulders

For our nations

Is that why we bury our friends?

 

We were all, we were all, we were all, we were all friends

 

A Christmas on the frontline, we walk among our friends, we don’t think about tomorrow, the battle will commence

When we celebrated Christmas, we thought about our friends, those who never made it home, when the battle had commenced
