Lyrics

Boxes and bows full of ribbons and clothes,
set up neatly beneath the tree
With a tag on each one saying Santa has come,
but where are the ones from me?
Oh, how I wanted the lights in your eyes to be mine
I wanted the look on your face
All I can give is this Christmas song to you
I just hope that you'll sing it
Wherever your heart skips a beat when you're thinking of me
And if the greetings this season will bring leave you searching for meaning
you will look to the words I have written and you'll be set free

You have to know that I can't let you down
It's you and me vs the rest of this town
And when the lights go out I'll still be around to put a bow on some sounds
That's all I can give you this Christmas

And I know that to you it's just jewelry and shoes
But to me, they're the smile on your face
Cause baby you've been the glue and the nails and screws
that have managed to keep me in place
So I wanted a gift for my lady in white
but all I could bring you tonight...

All I can give is this Christmas song to you
I just hope that you'll sing it
Whenever your heart skips a beat while you're thinking of me
And if the greetings this season will bring leave you searching for meaning
You will look the words I have written
and you'll be set free

You have to know that I can't let you down
It's you and me vs the rest of this town
And when the lights go out I'll still be around to put a bow on some sounds
(but that's all I can give you...)
And I'm hoping that a melody will let you know
that I'm waiting for a Christmas kiss with mistletoe

Cause baby that's all I can give is this Christmas song to you
I just hope that you'll sing it
Whenever your heart skips a beat when you're thinking of me
And the greeting this season will bring leave you searching for meaning
You'll look to the words I have written and you'll be set free
You have to know that I can't let you down
It's you and me vs the rest of this town
And when the lights go out
I'll still be around to put a bow on some sounds
But that's all I can give you this Christmas
