Once in royal David's city Stood a lowly cattle shed Where a mother laid her baby In a manger for his bed Mary was that mother mild Jesus Christ her little child And our eyes at least shall see him Through his own redeeming love For that child so dear and gentle Is our lord in heaven above And he leads his children on To the place where he is gone.

The lights are on and its Christmas eve I walk outside with a shorter sleeve The air is warm as I wind and weave Down city streets that I won't leave The snow won't fall and the streets are clear If dogs are barking I can't hear Everyone I know is nowhere near Off with people they see once a year I never thought I'd see the city sleep I've never heard that ringing It made a promise it could never keep I don't know why, but I never thought I'd see the city sleep. You said goodbye and I didn't fight I told a lie and I said you're right I block your phone calls out of spite But I'd pick up if you called tonight I never thought I'd see the city sleep I've never heard that ringing It made a promise it could never keep I don't know why, but I never thought I'd see the city sleep. The presents that I wrapped have got nowhere to go Nothing sounded better than just laying low 'Cause everyone at home would say I told you so But everything that's here is moving much too slow I never thought I'd see the city sleep I've never heard that ringing It made a promise it could never keep I don't know why, but I never thought I'd see the city sleep.

O Holy Night 03:50
O Holy Night the stars are brightly shining It is the night of our dear savior's birth Long lay the world in sin and error pining 'Til he appeared and the soul felt it's worth Fall on your knees O hear the angel voices O night divine O night when Christ was born Long lay the world in sin and error pining 'Til he appeared and the soul felt it's worth

The angel Gabriel from heaven came His wings as drifted snow His eyes as flame "All hail" said he "thou lowly maiden Mary Most highly favored lady, " Gloria, Gloria "For known a blessed mother thou shalt be All generations laud and honor thee Thy Son shall be Emanuel By seers foretold Most highly favored maid, " Gloria, Gloria Then gentle Mary meekly bowed her head "To me be as it pleaseth God, " she said, "My soul shall laud and magnify His holy name." Most highly favored lady, Gloria, Gloria

Good people all, this Christmas time, Consider well and bear in mind What our good God for us has done In sending his beloved son With Mary holy we should pray, To God with love this Christmas Day In Bethlehem upon that morn, There was a blessed Messiah born. Near Bethlehem did shepherds keep Their flocks of lambs and feeding sheep To whom God's angel did appear Which put the shepherds in great fear Arise and go, the angels said To Bethlehem, be not afraid For there you'll find, this happy morn A princely babe, sweet Jesus, born. With thankful heart and joyful mind The shepherds went the babe to find And as God's angel had foretold They did our Saviour Christ behold Within a manger he was laid And by his side a virgin maid Attending on the Lord of Life Who came on earth to end all strife. Good people all, this Christmas time, Consider well and bear in mind What our good God for us has done In sending his beloved son With Mary holy we should pray, To God with love this Christmas Day In Bethlehem upon that morn, There was a blessed Messiah born.

A winter daydream, snowfall, light's gleam, Standing here, frost in the air Laughter's ringing, Choirs singing All these years, hadn't seen it there I watch the snow fall Falling like snow for it all Sparkling, glowing, dancing in the windows Shining lights on the brownstones I may be far from where I came from But all these lights start to feel like home I watch the snow fall Falling like snow for it all And even though this day comes every year Here in the snow I see what's been so clear Here in the darkest cold December days Christmas shines a light Sheltered from the frost, the snow, Behind the window pane I don't feel cold See the lights, the fire, the glow, It is a feeling I will try to hold I watch the snow fall Falling like snow for it all And even though this day comes every year Here in the snow I see what's been so clear Here in the darkest cold December days Christmas shines a light Christmas shines a light

Here we are again, Holidays are rolling in And she's looking like I don't deserve one single gift So I like my egg nog strong Then singing carols 'til Dawn Even on the neighbor's lawn You two got a kick out of it But my baby she ain't smilin' Now this Christmas I only want one thing My main main Santa You gotta help me out Been getting glares from the missus Too many times to count Oh I'm in deep like a kid in snow She didn't even hang the mistletoe So forget my flat screen, with HBO Just put in a good word. My main man, Santa, let's go Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Decked out the house real nice Reindeer, and colored lights Trying to do something right And she's not having any of it Hinted at a getaway Perfect for the holiday You shoulda heard what she said to me Guess I got a new four letter nickname But my baby she ain't lyin' 'Bout this Christmas, I ain't getting a thing My main main Santa You gotta help me out Been getting blessed from the missus Too many times to count Oh I'm in deep like a kid in snow She didn't even hang the mistletoe So forget my flat screen, with HBO Just put in a good word. My main man, Santa, let's go I promise I'll leave a few extra cookies And a carton of milk by the door I always knew you were a miracle man And I need you like never before My main main Santa You gotta help me out Been getting blessed from the missus Too many times to count Oh I'm in deep like a kid in snow She didn't even hang the mistletoe So forget my flat screen, with HBO Just put in a good word. My main man, Santa, let's go Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho

In the bleak midwinter, icy wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow, In the bleak midwinter, long ago. Angels and archangels may have gathered there, Cherubim and seraphim rising in the air; Only his mother, in her maiden bliss, Worshiped the beloved with a mother's kiss. What can I give him, empty as I am? If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb; If I were a wise man, I would know my part; What then can I can I give him? I can give my heart.

It's the first Christmas since you went away Tomorrow's the first time I won't get to say "Hey, Merry Christmas, love you with all my heart" Instead I will miss you now that we're apart Christmas without you is hard for me to know In spite of the stockings and hung mistletoe Now that you've left I can't find my Christmas cheer But still, Merry Christmas, I wish you were here I still see you smiling as you open your gifts Bright exultations escape your lips You made every year seem more treasured than the last And I'm longing for the holidays we had in the past Christmas without you seems impossible to me No matter the holly, or lit Christmas tree I can't quite imagine it, try as I might But still, Merry Christmas, hope you sleep well tonight And when I wake up tomorrow morn My smile will fade as my heart is torn Missing you, so I'm cherishing the time we shared I'm unprepared And scared Christmas without you will never be the same When op'ning the presents we'll never call your name Without you here I am not sure how to be But still, Merry Christmas, you mean the world to me Still, Merry Christmas, you mean the world to me

Christmas in Tokyo Looking for some Mistletoe Wondering where I should Can't be sure, but Ho, Ho, Ho Where's the snow? Not in Tokyo The lights are brighter here than I ever imagined I reach for your hand, I can't help it, it's habit New sights around me, is this really what I wanted? But you know me it's not a good thing unless I lost it I miss you, I said it, I know we had an agreement Truth can be so damn inconvenient. That green sweater with snowflakes you always wear Is on this girl at the cafe and she catches me stare Drop my eyes to my shoes and when look up she's gone Back to my hotel and I started writing this song Maybe it's the season that's got me feeling sentimental There's no Santa at the mall here, I'm missing something essential It's not cold enough, no sleigh bells, no silent night We used to decorate our tree and you'd tear up at the sight There's no chimney to come down, it's well past midnight Christmas in Tokyo, and it won't be white. (Oh, not like that though, like the um white, like snow, like white like snow, yeah you got it) Christmas in Tokyo Looking for some Mistletoe Wondering where I should Can't be sure, but Ho, Ho, Ho Where's the snow? Not in Tokyo We used to sit on the couch and put rum in our cider Now we're a bit older, and I guess that means wiser Not sure if it's the carols, or the conversation that I'm missing the most. It gets lost in translation Hits me hard to realize I didn't buy anyone a present Except my mom and her dog, pretty much the end of it I'm not sure what it's worth across all this distance But all the same, well, Merry Christmas Christmas in Tokyo Looking for some Mistletoe Wondering where I should Can't be sure, but Ho, Ho, Ho Where's the snow? Not in Tokyo Christmas in Tokyo Looking for some Mistletoe Wondering where I should Can't be sure, but Ho, Ho, Ho Where's the snow? Not in Tokyo
