about

It's been a tough year, and sometimes holiday decorations mock your pain. Let's turn that around.

lyrics

So this was not your best year
And you just want to hide stay in bed
Until the first of next year
Then maybe you’ll poke out your head
But like it or not, the season’s here
You can’t avoid, you can’t stay clear
So when you’re tired of tryin’ to hide
Just step outside

And look at all the colored lights
Don’t they brighten up this night
Don’t they make you wanna just believe
But if Silent Night can’t set you free
You can drive around with me
I’ll be home on Christmas Eve

You’ve done no decorating
You’ll never get your shopping done
You’re not participating
In all the office party fun
And all the pressure to be nice
And all the Rankin Bass advice
Could crush the soul of any man
I understand...

But look at all the colored lights
Don’t they brighten up this night
Don’t they make you wanna just believe
But if "Silver Bells" can’t set you free
You can hang around with me
I’ll be home on Christmas Eve

Whoa-oh-oh well it’s okay
To turn your cynic’s eyes away
To let it go and feel all right
If only just for one good night
Hey hey hey!

And you don’t have to play in snow
Or watch some Lifetime picture show
And you can fight the righteous fight
Just not tonight…not tonight…

And look at all the colored lights
Don’t they brighten up this night
Don’t they make you wanna just believe
But if Darlene Love can’t set you free
You can drive around with me
I’m coming home
I’m coming home

Yeah come on man, now it’s all right
You can feel alive tonight
Cause I’ll be home on Christmas
I’ll be home on Christmas
I’ll be home on Christmas Eve
