Garth Brooks lyrics - Belleau Wood



Lyrics:

Oh, the snowflakes fell in silence
  Over Belleau Wood that night
  For a Christmas truce had been declared
  By both sides of the fight
  As we lay there in our trenches
  The silence broke in two
  By a German soldier singing
  A song that we all knew
  
  Though I did not know the language
  The song was "Silent Night"
  
  Then I heard my buddy whisper,
  "All is calm and all is bright"
  Then the fear and doubt surrounded me
  'Cause I'd die if I was wrong
  But I stood up in my trench
  And I began to sing along
  
  Then across the frozen battlefield
  Another's voice joined in
  Until one by one each man became
  A singer of the hymn
  
  Then I thought that I was dreaming
  For right there in my sight
  Stood the German soldier
  'Neath the falling flakes of white
  And he raised his hand and smiled at me
  As if he seemed to say
  Here's hoping we both live
  To see us find a better way
  
  Then the devil's clock struck midnight
  And the skies lit up again
  And the battlefield where heaven stood
  Was blown to hell again
  
  But for just one fleeting moment
  The answer seemed so clear
  Heaven's not beyond the clouds
  It's just beyond the fear
  
  No, heaven's not beyond the clouds
  It's for us to find it here
