I'm coming home for Christmas, and I'm leaving today
My bags are all packed and I'm driving the north highway
I got your letter, I'm missin' you all
Gotta get back to when we were small
On Christmas time

I've been pining for the way things used to be
When daddy cut the turkey and mama played the ivories
Grandma's delight and clementines
Cinnamon, sage, mulled red wine
On Christmas time, on Christmas time

We made angels in the snow
While lights in the town sparkled and glowed
Gingerbread men with candy canes
Pulled us along on a wooden sleigh

Joy in the world and peace to all
In silent nights we heard the call
Drummer boy played his best today
Snowflakes fall on our hearts and windowpanes
On Christmas time

This year I've got the heart of a mourning dove
And I'll be singing for the ones in glory above
They're the guardian arms of the old pine tree
And the sparkling tinsel gets everybody singing
On Christmas time, on Christmas time

We made angels in the snow
While lights in the town sparkled and glowed
Gingerbread men with candy canes
Pulled us along on a wooden sleigh

Joy in the world and peace to all
In silent nights we heard the call
Drummer boy played his best today
Snowflakes fall on our hearts and windowpanes
On Christmas time, On Christmas time

I'm coming home for Christmas and I'm leaving today
