It's late in the evening and I'm done with dreaming-- the boardwalk lights got me seeing stars. It's the bleak of midwinter, the snow's just a shimmer, and the shepherds are walking the beach in their scarves. It's just you and me and the roar of the sea-- it's harder to tell the snow from the sand. The cold of December is all I remember-- the taste of the salt and the touch of your hand. This time of year, there's nobody here-- the lifeguards have gone home for good. No one can find us in all of this whiteness, it's Christmas down the shore. It's all a ghost town but we're the ghosts now floating down streets and right through the walls And I'm sure I saw God on the promenade but he looks so tired from the curtain call this blessed event, when we climbed up the fence no one in line for the carousel there's 5 golden rings caught in the swings and the sunlight can't come to break up the spell Chorus Now on Christmas Eve, I still believe in the tides and the swells and in you and the moon I know that star, that's your face in the dark and it's lighting the path right into the dunes it's just you and me and the roar of the sea it's harder to tell the snow from the sand the cold of December is all I remember the taste of the salt and the touch of your hand Chorus

Christmas is for the believers That's what they tell me on certain news stations They say Christmas is for the believers And we're fighting a battle, and there's only one winner But I see the lights on the rooftops And wreaths on every door And I can't accept this incredible feeling Could ever come down to me versus you Reduced to some silly war Now I know the origin of Christmas Is sometimes disputed - it gets complicated A star light, a birth in a manger Or simply the solstice, and a mythical story But right now, the snowflakes are falling It's almost Christmas Eve And so in the spirit of this festive season I bet we can blend in your faith with my reason So here's what I believe I believe in artists and all their creations My friends, my family and our celebrations in teachers and leaders who share what they know In farmers and gardeners who share what they grow I believe in drama that stays on the stage I believe in the fiction you shared on the page I believe in people who search for the truth I believe in scientists searching for proof The activists fighting to keep people warm Those studying radar predicting the storms I believe in the planets, yes Pluto counts too I believe in you, yes I believe in you So I'm a believer, too Now I know some people will tell you This day belongs to them But I say just look all around us The shopping, the music, the anticipation Department store Santas, and bad decorations The trading of presents, the bells and the chimes And watching that movie you've seen 90 times You say that your holiday isn't for lost ones Well sorry, you shouldn't have made it so awesome So tell me I'm doomed, like all the forsaken Even though all the good stuff you took from the pagans Then pray for my soul, and pray for my saving Then come pick me up, cause I've got a craving We'll drink Irish coffee in winter apparel While looking at houses and singing some carols Like Joy to the World, and War is Over And maybe this battle can bring us some closure Cause I know in the end Christmas is for anyone Christmas can be for anyone

They say that there’s a reason for the season And we should remember it every day Be thankful that we’re not outside freezing And that we’re sitting by the warm fireplace The twinkling lights, the wreathes and all the holly Are a reminder to not let it get us down So chin up, and put on something jolly Let’s get drunk, and take over this town Christmas it’s Christmas time Filled with Grumpy gusses standing in obnoxious checkout lines Christmas it’s Christmas time But on December 26th it’ll all be fine The perfect gift, they say, comes from the heart You can't put a price on something so unique When you unwrap that claypot they call art Remember that before you try to speak What happened to caroling door to door? And Secret Santas leaving little clues We got WIFI and shopping's just a chore And really. who wants to hear songs out of tune? Christmas it’s Christmas time Honking horns, ringing bells, Santa photos of children crying Christmas it’s Christmas time On December 26th it’ll all be fine Stockings with bits of cat hair So much for hanging them with care Cookies, milk and Christmas cards Why does it have to be so hard? So next year when they ask about your plans Tell them your calendar is full Then pack up and go relax in the sand And ignore it when you feel the pull Christmas it’s Christmas time Filled with grumpy gusses standing in obnoxious check out lines Christmas, it's Christmas time Honking horns, ringing bells, Santa photos of children crying Christmas it’s Christmas time On December 26th you can open up that fifth On December 26th when you wake up it'll all be fine

I’ve got my shopping done I’ve got boxes and bows I’ve got Christmas songs playing on the radio But there’s something always missing No matter what I do I’ve got the stockings hung I’ve got Mistletoe The halls are all decked and the tree is trimmed And the forecast is calling for snow Everything’s covered in silver and gold but I’m only seeing blue ‘Cause it’s not Christmas if I don’t have you I know I can’t complain, I’m blessed with everything I need But the one thing I want is the one thing I don’t have Under the Christmas tree Now there’s family and friends sharing laughter and gifts The calendar up on the wall says December 25th But it’s not Christmas It’s not Christmas No, it’s not Christmas If I don’t have you

We were children once, we were innocent Christmas lights were sparkling in our souls When we weren't older But in my secret heart, past the hardest part... Clocks are turning back, days are getting dark Silver bells are ringing in the snow Another New Year's Eve goes by without you But in my secret heart, past the hardest part, Where the truth comes out, is when I fall apart with you.

I went to the Farmers market. To buy a Christmas tree. The man dressed in black, said he had one in the back. He saved it just for me. Oh it’s funny to say, no matter how I stray Things seem to work out right The holidays take all my cares away. And Christmas is such a special day. Chorus CHRISTMAS OH CHRISTMAS. I’LL SEND SOME HOPE YOUR WAY AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER. BE THANKFUL WE’RE ALL OK CHRISTMAS OH CHRISTMAS SHARE SOME JOY TODAY CHRISTMAS IS HERE FOR YOU AND ME IT OPENS OUR EYES FOR US TO SEE Went out to do my Christmas shopping, and everywhere I’d go People grumble and gripe, wondering what’s all the hype. Seems they honestly don’t know. So I smile and say, Happy Holiday!. Things will be alright! Let the season take all your cares away. ‘Cause Christmas is such a special day. REPEAT Chorus Bridge So give the most precious gift: one you can’t buy or sell Good will to all this blessed Noel. REPEAT Chorus

’Tis the season what better reason to celebrate Just you and me, sing along with Bing as we decorate At home in the warm glow of our tree we’ll stay No need to chase the perfect holiday With much to do Te best part of this simple Christmas is Just being with you When its dark, we won’t go too far for a scenic drive Taking in all the glittering of the pretty lights Maybe later a classic movie, coffee and pie No need to chase the perfect holiday With much to do Te best part of this simple Christmas is Just being with you Fa la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la Fa la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la Fa la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la No need to chase the perfect holiday With much to do Te best part of this simple Christmas is Just being with you, being with you, just being with you

CHORUS To have the best little Christmas that we've ever, ever had It'll take a little faith, It'll take a little faith To have the best little Christmas that we've ever, ever had It'll take a little faith, It'll take a little faith from me and you So we're broke, we don't have anything Except this little Christmas tree and caroling The fire took everything Now we'll start over I'm pulling you closer Than ever, than ever before (CHORUS) From the wreckage we'll build again and again Thanking God for mistletoe and all our friends A new beginning Better than ever Do you think so? We won't know until we try (CHORUS)
