Here's a loud Christmas song. Happy Holidays!

lyrics

Where’s the Christmas cheer?
The kind we had last year
I’m looking through old pictures
I don’t know how we got to here
So I pour a glass of Christmas wine
And make a playlist of my favorite songs from 1999
I can play ‘em loud
Now that you’re not here to tell me to turn it down
What would I give to have you here right now

I’m waiting for my chance to say
“Baby won’t you please come home?”
I’m standing under the mistletoe
But I’m standing all alone
If Santa’s out there watching
Won’t he give me one last wish
All I want is you back home for Christmas

Watching Christmas movies
Letting alcohol consume me
Sending messages through lawyers
Happy Holiday destroyers
I raise my glass to the year I’ve had
I’m looking for the good
But I’m only finding bad
And I feel like the kid from Home Alone
Who just wants his family back
I just want you to come back

I’m waiting for my chance to say
“Baby won’t you please come home?”
I’m standing under the mistletoe
But I’m standing all alone
If Santa’s out there watching
Won’t he give me one last wish
All I want is you back home for Christmas

I’ll have myself a holly jolly good time
With the good wine
Rocking around the tree with the ghosts of
Christmas Past, Present Future me

I’m waiting for my chance to say
“Baby won’t you please come home?”
I’m standing under the mistletoe
But I’m standing all alone
If Santa’s out there watching
Won’t he give me one last wish
All I want is you back home for Christmas
All I want is you back home for Christmas
All I want is you back home for Christmas
All I want is you

about

Dan Wade Chicago, Illinois

I'm a singer-songwriter from Chicago. I'm obsessed with writing the perfect chorus. I often sit back and realize what the song's lyrics were actually about after I finish writing them. My songs usually end up sounding like powerpop or pop-punk but who cares? Finding connection and meaning through music is important. Rock and roll is the vessel for me, I guess. Thanks for listening and turn it up. ... more
