Lyrics (Source Google Search)
Ribbons of their truth Can I touch to reconnect? See beyond the light, In Bubbles rise — to surface in someone’s eye Synchrons that dwell Silence is crying, is crying Open doors and Empty glasses, Christmas in the Silent Forest The limp ticking of the hand Penetrate in whispers In shadows rise — to surface in someone’s mind Echoes that dwell …echoes that dwell… echoes that dwell Blameless sorrow Hollow hush of trees Roots are deeply intertwined Penetrate in whispers In shadows rise — to surface In someone’s sigh Segments that yell Silence is crying, is crying Open doors and Empty glasses, Christmas in the Silent Forest The limp ticking of the hand Hollow hush of trees, How do you keep? Sweet slumber, sleep among the forest trees Hollow hush of trees, How do you keep? Sweet slumber, sleep among the forest trees Songwriters: 菅野 よう子 / Shanti Snyder CHRisTmas in the SiLenT ForeSt lyrics © IGM”
Molly Pease did a great job with her live performance / cover of this song, except for some of the voice effects at the end, this is the best cover of this song that I have found so far; I wish that there were more good covers and live performances like this of more music from some of my favorite anime.
