lyrics

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
