Track Name: Goodnight.
Darling I know it’s hard to close your eyes
In the dark it feels like everybody’s gone
Darling I know it’s hard to say goodnight
But it’s the only way to make the morning come

All of these fires must burn themselves away
Every ember blinking out one by one
Darling I know it’s hard to close your eyes
But it’s the only to make Christmas come

Wake up to your present now
The people all around you came together and chipped in
Tied it with a ribbon
Wake up to a field of white
Some blank piece of paper asking you to write
Whatever you like
It happened when you learned to say

Picture a town where nothing ever fades
In the distance all the sizes stay the same
Nothing makes room, so nothing's new
Go put your toys away so someone else can play

Wake up to your present now
The people all around you came together and chipped in
Tied it with a ribbon
Wake up to a field of white
Some blank piece of paper asking you to write
Whatever you like
It happened when you learned to say goodnight

Give me one more new year’s kiss
You never know which one the last is
This planet sings as it spins
So you had better listen
Na na na na na

Tonight make some music just to face it
Tonight ignore the time completely wasted
Tonight act like I’m a better man

Everybody here gets another year

Wake up to your present now
The people all around you came together and chipped in
Tied it with a ribbon
Wake up to a field of white
Some blank piece of paper asking you to write
Whatever you like
Happened when you learned to say goodnight
Track Name: Someone Else's Christmas
at someone else's christmas they just sit around and wait
while the food's all changing flavours and the people rearrange
and with someone else's christmas if the music ever stopped
I'd be waiting at the table standing tall and singing out

la...

cuz with someone else's christmas when you're outside looking in
all the presents seem so desperate and traditions just feel grim
so it's someone else's christmas just a little left or right
of the way you learned and memorized all the smells and sounds and sights

la....


On someone else's christmas when you think you've made the grade
there's a surgeon telling stories of the people that he saved
Though it's someone else's christmas you can recognize what's right
And How without these people, it'd be just another night

La......

it's too soon to say what it means or what it is
and it may be the case that a meaning never fits
it's not what you do it's only who you do it with
even when it don't feel right it is

I've heard people happy with
Hand-me-downs the same old gifts
there's no room for falling on the ground
I've seen people following, anything and everything
And that's all fine but we're still singing out.

La.....


it's too soon to say what it means or what it is
and it may be the case that a meaning never fits
it's not what you do it's only who you do it with
even when it don't feel right it is
