25th December

Everything But the GirlBuy this song

And I see forests and it´s the 25th of December 
And my old man plays the piano for Christmas. 
He plays the piano for Christmas. 

And we´re all there, all the aunties and uncles, 
And the angle´s on the top of the tree. 
Up there o the top of the tree. 

And I never, no I never ever realised. 
And I never, no I never ever realised. 

Have I enough time, have I just some time, 
To revisit, to go back, to return, to open my mouth again 
And say something different this time. 

And I see bags of newspaper and a car in the carport, 
And you´re a grown up and still unsure, 
And I´m thirty and I don´t know nothing no more. 

And I never, no I never ever realised. 
And I never, no I never ever realised. 

And I´m sitting, sitting on the top of the stairs, 
And you´re crying out on the towpath by the river 
With all the swans and all the people walking by. 

And all of a sudden I´m stuck with an urge to unlock a door 
With a key that´s too big for my hands 
And I drop it, and it falls at your feet. 

Come on, come on, it´s there at your feet. 
And I never, no I never ever realised. 
And I never, no I never ever realised.
