Track Name: Ben Smith - Christmas Down the Shore
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
Track Name: Hot Breakfast! - Christmas Is For Believers
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
Track Name: Brian Turner with Matt Casarino - Christmastime
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
Track Name: The New Normals - It's Not Christmas
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
Track Name: Almshouse - Secret Christmas
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.
Track Name: Iggy Taylor - Christmas O Christmas
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
Track Name: Tracy Colletto - Simple Christmas
’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
Track Name: Don McAvoy and the Great Whatever (feat. The Encounters) - Best Little Christmas
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)
