Lyrics

Hallelujah Of My Own 
@2014 Juliann Ankley, Michelle Chenard

pretty snow is fallen' on my town
lights a twinklin' all around
if i could get my heart to settle down 
more sad news today 
seems so many have lost their way

where's the peace on earth 
where's the comfort when it hurts 
where's the joy in our words 
I need a hallelujah of my own
faith of this mother is shaken to the bone

tree is up home smells like pine 
houses on my block all look like mine
oh somewhere else somebody's cryin' tonight
My heart goes out, cause that just don't seem right

Chorus

We are sisters and brothers 
that's what we say
but I don't see it much these days
It's so easy 
to look the other way
than to feel another's pain
