lyrics

Lifting down the shoebox full of tinsel for the tree,
that's 3-foot tall and long-time dead, but that's good enough for me.
Because soon we'll be back home now, back to where we met,
'cos this city's thrown it's worst at us this year.

Being good's all relative, but being bad's more fun,
so I hope I hear some sleigh bells on the roof if Santa comes.
Staying up by candlelight and burning logs to dust;
it's the little things that make this season last.

I see you walking in the snow,
so I follow your footprints and I hope they take me home.
Christmas aint Christmas unless it snows,
so let's do this until we're old.

Make mine a double as this season's kicking in,
when festivities mean something more than the usual gigs and drinks.
'Cos home is where the heart is and this heart's never felt so near,
to the best few days it's going to see all year.

I see you walking in the snow,
so I follow your footprints and I hope they take me home.
Christmas aint Christmas unless it snows,
so let's do this until we're old.

Not understanding, not even comprehending, why Christmas can't come sooner,
because my money it's for spending.
The family are all waiting and the TV's getting dated, so let's just get wasted as we talk of gifts and angels.
Real-life can keep waiting now, 'cos Christmas can't be wasted, but doing less than caring is just taking it for grant.
Now and then it all can get just a little bit too festive, but we both need this to see who we are.

I see you walking in the snow,
so I follow your footprints and I hope they take me home.
Christmas aint Christmas unless it snows,
so let's do this until we're old.
We've been walking in this snow,
kick your boots off at the back-door; thank god we're home.
Christmas is when the best stories are told,
so let's do this until we're old.
Until we're old.
