I'm using the airwaves just to talk to you
To send my message loud and clear.
I used to be private, but I don't care anymore.
But I'll tell the whole world if that's what it takes, my dear.

Just like the soldiers who ain't coming home this year.
Just like the fellas in prison who miss you so much in here.
Just like the children that ran away that want to come home tonight.
Here's a message from coast to coast,
The one that really hurts the most is on a holiday.

That's when it hurts, baby.
Thanksgiving (Thanksgiving), Christmas (Christmas).
I'm crying on New Year's Eve.
On a holiday, that's when it hits me, baby.
So if you can't do anything else,
Won't you please just say you will and light a candle for me.

I hope that you'll receive this message, baby.
I hope it finds you'll have a good time.
(In time you'll find it quite soon.)
You might have others to share your love with,
But I only have you holding on in my mind.

Just like the soldiers that ain't coming home this year.
Just like the fellas in this prison that miss you so much, my dear.
Just like the children that they ran away that wish they were home tonight.
Here's a message from coast to coast,
The one we really can't stand it the most is on a holiday.

That's when it hurts, baby.
Thanksgiving (Thanksgiving), Christmas (Christmas).
I'm crying on New Year's Eve.
On a holiday like Easter, baby,
I really miss seeing the children.
So if you can't do anything else, (Can't do anything else)
Won't you please just say you will and light a candle for me, baby.
(On a holiday)

Would you do it for me, darling, honey.
Valentine's (Valentine's), Christmas (Christmas).
Crying on New Year's Eve.
On a holiday, hey baby, that's when it hits me, darling.
Though many people say I'm wasting my time,
(Can't do anything else)
In my heart, I feel you'll still be mine when I get home to you, baby.
(On a holiday)
When I get home to you, darling.  I know.
Thanksgiving and Kwanzaa, baby, the 4th of July.
I'm toeing the line.
I miss you, baby.
