lyrics

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
