About Underneath The Tree

"Underneath the Tree" is a song by American singer Kelly Clarkson, from her sixth studio album and first Christmas album, Wrapped in Red (2013). Written by Clarkson along with Greg Kurstin, who handled its production, it is a Christmas-themed song that sings of gratitude for companionship during the holidays, in which the beloved is being referred as the only present needed "underneath the tree". Accompanied by various instrumental sounds, the song prominently incorporates a Wall of Sound treatment along with sleigh bells and bell chimes to resonate a holiday atmosphere. "Underneath the Tree" was first released to Adult Contemporary radio stations on November 5, 2013, by RCA Records as the lead single from the album. "Underneath the Tree" has been praised by music critics, who considered it as the main highlight of Wrapped in Red and lauded its potential to be a holiday classic. They also favorably compared it to the 1994 modern Christmas standard "All I Want for Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey. The song reached number one on the US and Canadian adult contemporary charts and has since became a recurring Top 40 hit in over eleven regions worldwide.

You're here where you should be
Snow is falling as the carolers sing
It just wasn't the same
Alone on Christmas day
Presents, what a beautiful sight
Don't mean a thing if you ain't holding me tight
You're all that I need
Underneath the tree
Tonight

I'm gonna hold you close
Make sure that you know
I was lost before you
Christmas was cold and grey
Another holiday alone to celebrate
But then, one day, everything changed
You're all I need
Underneath the tree

You're here where you should be
Snow is falling as the carolers sing
It just wasn't the same
Alone on Christmas day
Presents, what a beautiful sight
Don't mean a thing if you ain't holding me tight
You're all that I need
Underneath the tree

I found, what I was looking for
A love that's meant for me
A heart that's mine completely
Knocked me right off my feet
And this year I will fall
With no worries at all
'Cause you are near and everything's clear
You're all I need
Underneath the tree

You're here where you should be
Snow is falling as the carolers sing
It just wasn't the same
Alone on Christmas day
Presents, what a beautiful sight
Don't mean a thing if you ain't holding me tight
You're all that I need
Underneath the tree

And then, one day, everything changed
You're all I need
Underneath the tree

You're here where you should be
Snow is falling as the carolers sing (oh, yeah, yeah)
It just wasn't the same (oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Alone on Christmas day
Presents, what a beautiful sight (oh, you're all I need)
Don't mean a thing if you ain't holding me tight (underneath the tree)
You're all that I need (underneath the tree, yeah)
Underneath the tree
Tonight
Oh, you're all I need
Underneath, underneath the tree, oh
