A song of newer things

In The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe C.S Lewis presents a place where it is always winter but never Christmas. The Narnia books are full of metaphor and analogy and I think of this as some kind of parallel to the Kingdom of God. Simplistic perhaps but it does sidle on up to your imagination. Relient K (the band)- whom I was quite into back when I was about 16, wrote a song on the same concept.

It’d be so nice to look out the window
And see the leaves on the trees begin to show
The birds would congregate and sing
A song of birth a song of newer things

The wind would calm and the sun would shine
I’d go outside and I’d squint my eyes
But for now I will simply just withdraw
Sit here and wish for this world to thaw

And everything it changed overnight
This dying world you brought it back to life
And deep inside I felt things shifting
Everything was melting
And you gave us the most beautiful of days

Cause when it’s always winter but never Christmas
Sometimes it feels like you’re not with us
But deep inside our hearts we know
That you are here and we will not lose hope
