Lyrics:

There’s something about this time of year

When everything is sacred

I want to bottle it up and save it

 

And all around the sights and sounds you hear

They’re making me nostalgic

I think about my life and how it’s beautiful and it’s changing

But when the snow starts to fall

I feel like a kid again

 

We got the wreath hung on the door

We got gifts piled on the floor

We got more than we could ask for

This is Christmas

There's a fire in the fireplace

Life running through our veins

Don’t it feel like amazing grace

This is Christmas

 

With emotions running wild

The smiles come easier

All the feels feel feelier

And I start acting like a child

Yeah but if I may say, ain't that kinda the best way to live

Because we all are changing

But when the snow starts to fall

We feel all the same things

 

We got the wreath hung on the door

We got gifts piled on the floor

We got more than we could ask for

This is Christmas

There's a fire in the fireplace

Life running through our veins

Don’t it feel like amazing grace

This is Christmas

 

I can't believe that

This day has come

We’ve been talking about it since last year

It's like a dream that everyone I hold so dear is right here

Lyrics:

On Christmas day

Oh how I pray

That the world

Would be at peace

And on Christmas night

No matter what the day was like

I’ll be back on my knees

Singing hallelujah, hallelujah

Hallelujah This Christmas

Hallelujah

 

On Christmas some

May have just begun

To feel the love

Coming from above

But all the prayer form the sinners and the saints

Reaches heaven just the same

And it sounds like

Hallelujah, hallelujah

Hallelujah no matter what

Hallelujah

 

Whether cold winds are blowing

Or I’m warm inside

While in blinding blizzards or a silent night

Whether gifts are flowing

Or an empty tree

I will close my eyes and I will sing

Whether cold winds are blowing

Or I’m warm inside

While in blinding blizzards or silent night

Where the gifts are flowing

Or an empty tree

I will close my eyes and see

Hallelujah, hallelujah

Hallelujah this christmas

Hallelujah

Lyrics:

Lights in the window

Snow on the ground

People getting together

Fighting the weather, all over town

 

Now everyone’s saying

“Happy Holidays”

And the kids are waiting anticipating, wish I felt the same

 

Christmas time is here, but you’re not

Memories of you are all I got

I hung the tree

In Red and Green and the fire’s still hot

Oh Christmas time is here, but you’re not

 

Now it feels like December

Was made for us

From the walks in the snow to the mistletoe to falling in love

But now Christmas aint merry

No It’s only blue

Every song no matter which one just reminds me of you

Just reminds me that

 

Christmas time is here, but you’re not

Memories of you are all I got

I hung the tree

In Red and Green and the fire’s still hot

Oh Christmas time is here, but you’re not

 

Let the choir sing

Let the church bells ring

I’ll be thinking about you

Let the snowflakes fall

And when the seasons gone

I'll be thinking about you

 

Christmas time is here, but you’re not

Memories of you are all I got

I hung the tree

In Red and Green and the fire’s still hot

Oh Christmas time is here, Christmas time is here

Christmas time is here, but you’re not
