It says it‘s Christmas on the calendar
But where are those sweet smells
That I only remember in my mind
Where are those sweet sounds
That remind me of the past
That remind me of Christmas last
Christmas is not the same this year
But is that a bad thing?
No cheap Santa's waving in shop windows
No fake snowmen dressed in fake snow
A few lights illuminate the street tonight
And for me that's enough
To remind my heart to be light and bright
Not to fear this Christmas and New Year!
