Christmas Day

Have Guitar Will Travel




It's getting late now on Christmas Day 
the sadness brings around memories that I face
I know I never had too much to offer her
except some lonely words on this paper
but if I could have held her last night in my arms
then maybe Christmas Eve would have felt a little more right

These highways run empty into the dead of the night
the silence its a lonely friend that's along for the ride
don't know where Im going or where these roads will take me but if I keep on driving than maybe you'll never find me
or I'll never find you

No one should be all alone
Not on Christmas Day
 on Christmas Day
No one should be all alone 
Not on Christmas Day
 on Christmas Day

I should have realized this town could never have held the two of us
We stood so much alike 
We stand in darkness waiting for the sun
blind in seeing what should be done
All this suffering has made your young face grow thin
but when we're so far apart 
where do I begin
to fit in

No one should be all alone
Not on Christmas Day
 on Christmas Day
No one should be all alone 
Not on Christmas Day
 on Christmas Day

I wish I could read your mind just to know what you're thinking
or know how you see me through those misty green eyes
but you seem to have no desire tp express any grief
your dear voice she don't sound so near to me
but in my time of dying see that grave is kept clean

No one should be all alone
Not on Christmas Day
 on Christmas Day
No one should be all alone 
Not on Christmas Day
 on Christmas Day
Do not go gentle into that good night
rage rage against the dying of light
No one should be all alone
not on Christmas Day
