I'll have a blue Christmas without you
I'll be so blue thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
Won't be the same dear if you're not here with me

And when those blue snowflakes start falling
That's when those blue, those blue memories start calling, yeah
Oh, you'll be doing alright with your pretty, pretty Christmas in white
But I'm, I'm gonna have a blue, a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas
Hey yeah!

Oh, you will be doing alright, doing alright in your Christmas of white
But I'll, I'll have a blue, a blue Christmas

. . .


Windshields kissed with snow on this endless interstate
Over the fields we go laughing all the way
We sing love, love, love it's glorious

Friends and family near, no more judgments, no more fear
All is calm, all is bright, everyone will hold this light
And sing love, love, love it's glorious

Sleep in heavenly, in heavenly
Sleep in heavenly, in heavenly
Believe in heavenly, in heavenly peace

I have heard the angels sweetly singing o'er the plain
And I've heard the mountains echoing their sweet refrain
They sing love, love, love, love, love it's glorious
Love, love, love it's glorious
Love, love, love it's glorious

Sleep in heavenly, in heavenly
Sleep in heavenly, in heavenly
Believe in heavenly, in heavenly peace

. . .


(Christmas)
The snow's coming down
(Christmas)
I'm watching it fall

(Christmas)
Lots of people around
(Christmas)
Baby please come home

The church bells in town
They're ringing a song
What a happy sound
Baby please come home

They're singing deck the halls
But it's not like Christmas at all
I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

Pretty lights on a tree
I'm watching them shine
You should be here with me
Baby please come home

Baby please come home
Baby please come home
Please, please, please, please

They're singing deck the halls
But it's not like Christmas at all
I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

(Christmas)
If there was a way
(Christmas)
I would hold back these tears

(Christmas)
But it's Christmas Day
Baby, baby please, please, please, please, please
Please, please, please, please, please, please

Baby please come home
Baby please come home
Baby, baby please come home
Come home, come home, come home baby

Baby please come home
Baby please come home
Baby please come home
Baby please come home, yeah

. . .


Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
From now on our troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years we all will be together if the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Oh, faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years we all will be together if the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

. . .


As God is God, as light is light
Whose law is wrong? Whose might is right?
Here we are on the edge
The edge of change

I believe in peace, my only wish
I believe that we can co-exist
Let's go further now
Than we've ever gone before

And ring the bells, ring the bells of change
Ring the bells every boy and every girl
Ring the bells, ring the bells of peace
All over the world

We've all been called to wake from sleep
To feel our power to create the dream
To step out from the dark
Past our fathers' fear

Ring the bells, ring the bells of change
Ring the bells every boy and every girl
Ring the bells, ring the bells of peace
All over the world

Here we stand in unity
Making one choice to be free
Every truth blends into one
As we believe it shall be done

Here we stand as soldiers now
Turning our swords into plows
There is not a nobler clime
Achieving peace in our own time

I know peace begins with me
With all I feel and with all I see
And I know it's no easy task
Removing our own fearful mask

But I have seen us rise and fall
Stand on the moon, tear down the wall
And I know we can do it all
And do it well, so ring the bells

Ring the bells, ring the bells of change
Ring the bells every boy and every girl
Ring the bells, ring the bells of peace
All over the world, all over the world

Ring the bells, ring the bells of change
Ring the bells every boy and every girl
Ring the bells, ring the bells of peace
All over the world, all over the world

Ring the bells, ring the bells of peace
Ring the bells, ring the bells
Ring the bells, ring the bells

Joy to the world
Hallelujah

. . .


Merry Christmas baby
You sure did treat me nice
Yeah, merry Christmas baby
You sure did treat me nice
Give me all this good lovin' for Christmas
Now I'm living in paradise

Well, I'm feeling mighty fine, yeah
I've got good music on my radio
Well, I'm feeling mighty fine
Got some good music on my radio
Well, I'm gonna kiss you baby
While you're standing underneath the mistletoe

Santa came down the chimney about a half past three
Left all these pretty, pretty presents for you and for me

So merry Christmas baby
You sure been good to me
Oh, I haven't had a smoke this morning
Sweetheart, but I'm all lit up like a Christmas tree

Oh yeah, merry Christmas baby
You sure did treat me nice
Oh yeah, merry Christmas baby
You sure did treat me nice, oh yeah
Give me all this good lovin' for Christmas
And now I'm living in paradise

Oh, merry Christmas baby

. . .



I picked out a tree
And I tied it to the car
There's a wreath up on our door
Eight tiny reindeer in the yard
I drove under the downtown lights
Red and green and blue
The silver neon snowflakes
Only made me think of you
It's Christmas all around me
You're in someone else's land
So I'm sending out my only wish
Hey Santa tell the man

Hey mister send my baby home
This December I don't want to be all alone
Oh Christmas in America
I need you in my arms
Far away from harm
Mister send my baby home

I hear someone singing jingle bells
No wait that deck the halls
And the teenagers with candy canes
Ramble through the malls
The girls are down at Ruby's
Trying to find some Christmas cheer
There's not much to do but drink too much
When everyday's unclear
So here I am on Christmas eve
This silent holy night
And I reach up to the stars for you
And I pray that you're alright

What happened to the peace on earth
All that goodwill toward men
Oh come on all ye faithful

. . .


'Tis the season of change

The seasons are the contrast
Heed a life and how it's done
It's time to let go of all our past
And let go of what's to come

Write down your excuses
And turn them into dust
And plant the seeds of change
Water it with trust

And light a light tonight, we light a light
We light a light tonight, we light a light
Now about this time is ending and everyone is here
We light a light, a light this year
'Tis the season of change

What do we have, what do we have not?
What do we need that isn't here?
This mindless, numb, consuming
Is driven by a subtle fear

It's time we stopped believing
That there will not be enough
I know they said it on the TV
So turn it off, break the chains
Step outside and feel the love

And light a light tonight, we light a light
We light a light tonight, we light a light
Now about this time is ending, everyone is here
We light a light, a light this year
'Tis the season of change

Ooh change, we shall change
We must change

Heaven is inside, it's all around not just above
Choose only love
Heaven is inside, it's all around not just above
Choose only love

Choose only love
Choose only love
Choose only love
Choose only love

And light a light tonight, we light a light
Light a light tonight, we light a light
We light a light
Light a light tonight, we light a light
We light a light tonight, we light a light
'Tis the season of change

. . .


What if we could create peace on Earth?
I wonder what that would look like
I wonder if heaven and nature would sing
Hallelujah

What if we all stopped believing the line
That happiness comes from a stork?
What if we looked at the damage we've done
And finally shouted no more?

Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time

What if we did create peace on Earth?
How would we feel 'bout ourselves?
If we know we were perfect and good and enough
For all we desire is well

What if we all started spreading the news
There's nothing to fear anymore?
We are connected, one family of light
Hallelujah

Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time, oh yeah

It's Christmas time

I think we can create peace on Earth
I finally decide I might
By healing our pain, intending our love
In the world we create what we find
What if we all took the time to be still?

Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time

Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time

Create peace on Earth
Create peace on Earth
Create peace on Earth
Create peace on Earth

It's Christmas time
It's Christmas time
Fa, la, la, la, la

. . .


There is a time in late December
The sun stands still in winter
For three days and three long nights
Throughout time we've watched the sky
And waited for the sun to come and save us
Save us from the longest night

For years I have been doing things
And singing songs that don't make any sense
But if I scratch the surface just a little bit
The holiday paint is pretty thin

Look to the sky with hope and wonder
There's a star in the east to guide us home
We are closer now than we've ever been
To peace on earth and good will to men
As we celebrate the longest night
O night divine
O night divine
