about

Christmas is for anyone.

lyrics

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
