Lyrics – On Christmas Day

ON CHRISTMAS DAY
Now the leaves, Have deserted their trees,
Just as you, Were deserted by me,
But surely this can change, For I will make amends…

On Christmas Day, On Christmas Day,
On Christmas Day, On Christmas Day.

Trees stare out, From cold sunken eyes,
Just as you, Stared out right through my lies,
But when the choirs sing, And Christmas bells will ring,
Wherever I may lie, To you I will fly,

For Christmas Day, For Christmas Day,
For Christmas Day, For Christmas Day.

On Christmas Day back cover1UNFOLD
I won’t watch this unfold, I won’t hear stories told,
You see I’m growing old, And I can’t take, I can’t take much more.

I much prefer the quiet life, Where nobody sees what I do,
If that requires a sacrifice, That takes me forever from you,
I don’t know how I’ll make it through, Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh oo-oh.

Facing the umpteenth fence, Refusal’s my best defence,
Stay in the present tense, And I don’t think, Of what may come hence.

CHORUS

Give me my time to kill, Give me my days to fill,
Wrap me up from the chill, Which is drilling me, Drilling me through.

And if I find the quiet life, Takes me forever from you,
I guess that I’ll make it through, Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh oo-oh.

IN THE SUNLIGHT
So easy for you to say you care,
So much more difficult for me to say the same,
When you whisper, The words don’t ever leave,
They fall so softly, I can almost believe you.

So please tell me that you need me,
That I am worth my weight in gold,
And in the sunlight of the morning,
I’ll be standing on top of the world.

I know we’re different, You seem so secure,
I stand here nervously, I feel so unsure,
Your kiss feels pleasant, Yeah I like your warmth,
Like a birthday present, It’s more than all I’m worth.

And you can tell me that you need me,
That I am worth my weight in gold,
But how do I know in the sunlight of the morning,
The story of my life will not have been sold.

You see I’ve seen chances slip, And I have cursed my luck,
Felt it going wrong, And then I’ve watched it come unstuck,
So I can’t be sure…

So I’ll roll off home now, Go my other way,
A few hours contentment, Keeps me going for another day,
And if you tell me, I’m worth my weight in gold,
I’ll be standing, On top of the world.
