Let it snow, let it snow
Hey, it's another Christmas holiday
It's a joyous thing let the angels sing
Cause we're together
We got a thing can't let it slip away
No, outside its raining sleet
When our bodies meet
I don't care about the weather

[Chorus:}
Let it snow, let it snow
Outside its cold but the fire's blazin'
So baby let it snow
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Ohhh, come over here and help me trim the tree
I want to wrap you up baby
Maybe then you'll see you're the only present I need
There's so much more
Waiting for you in store
From this precious day
I can gladly say
There's no place I'd rather be
I know you are my everything, come a little closer
God must have sent you down from heaven

[Chorus]

Let it snow, let it snow
Let it snow, let it snow (repeat 4x)
I don't care what the weather may be
As long as you're here with me

It's the time of the year again for you to share
All the love that you have
With every woman and every man to share love
Christmas day is here
And the Lord is what is near
To share love with your family and thank God for allowing you to see that

[Chorus]
Christmas is the time to share
With the one you love share good things
Joy, glad tidings
Share love
Giving all you have this day
Lets the world know you care
And you will be there to share love

Families all around
Children are happy with what they found
Giving things on this day and thanking our God
For teaching us the way to share love
As the snow is falling down
Presents unwrapped underneath the tree
Bringing tidings of great joy to every little girl and boy, you know

[Chorus]

Now the true meaning of Christmas
Is falling on your knees
Thanking the Lord for what he's done
Giving the world his only son

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

You’re Not Alone

Girl you're so sad
He was the very first love you had
But he hurt your heart real bad
He just led your feelings a stray
And on a holiday
Go ahead and cry
Let me clear each tear from your eye
And maybe sing you a lullaby
Let my heart beat be your guide
To a cure inside

I know that it's oh so hard to let go
Give yourself time to heal take it slow
Let's talk as the rainbow colored lights make the tree glow
I'm your friend
I will be here for you till the end
Cause I don't want want to see you hurt again
I can be the key for your heart to mend

[Chorus]
Cause baby you're not alone
The pain in your heart is strong
Baby let me hold you in my arms
Let me be your protector from harm
Cause no one should be alone
On Christmas

How could he do
Such a thing to one as good as you?
Gave him your all
And I know that it's true
Had a gem and didn't know what to do
But baby I'm here to tell you that
I'm yours if you want me
These feelings I've held in too long
You've been on my mind
Girl you know I'll never lie
Love is so kind

I opened a prayer
That by the Lord's grace you would come my way
And receive love that won't go away
Celebrate this occasion
With gifts of joy on his birthday
On this night
I'll fill all your empty spaces inside
As the snow falls I'll make it alright
Cause this day is for sharing
And no one should be without some one caring

[Chorus]

Girl this Christmas you won't be alone
You don't have to cry
You don't have to worry about a thing
All the gifts that you wanted this year
Are your's
You don't have to worry about him no more
Cause he's gone
Don't live in the past baby
I'm your future
All the feelings that I have
Are here for you
Anything that I can do
To take away any problem
That you may have or have had
I'm here
Just say Michael
And this Christmas is your's

[Chorus:Repeat x3]

A Joyous Song

length: 5:54
producer: Shawn Stockman
co-producer: Brian McKnight, Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris and Michael McCary
composer: Shawn Stockman
lyricist: Shawn Stockman
Love over flows around this season
Our hearts find pleasure in the simplest of things
It brings joy to a child
When he sees all the decorations hanging all around
The birthday of our king
We sing praises to you
People gather around to see a tree
Light up the sky for all of the world to see
Of all the holidays that exist
None makes more happier than this one

[Chorus:]
I see love all around this world
In every man, woman, boy, and girl
The time is so right and I'll say
Thank you Lord
It's so great to be alive
Because it's all about love

As we sit around the fire place
Windows fill with snow as it flutters down and gives the ground a glow
I feel your kisses
Your warm embrace
Kneeling as we pray
To thank our Lord for what he's done for us
Time stands so still
As I touch your hand it says things to me words never will

I feel it (it's easy to feel) peace all the way inside
Joy from a stranger as he walks by and says
Hi, Merry Christmas to you and yours
May you receive everything you wish for and more
I see love

[Chorus: Repeats 5X]

Why Christmas

composer: Wanya Morris
lyricist: Wanya Morris
*Mike and Wanya talk in the beginning:*
Mike: Hey, what's wrong squirt?
Wanya: I don't know man. Sometimes around this time of year I just get depressed.
Mike: Man, this isn't the time of year to be depressed. It's the time to be happy and giving, man.
Wanya: You know, sometimes I think about things that are happening in the world today, things I didn't have. I just feel like crying.
Mike: We all feel that way sometimes. But, it'll be alright.
Wanya: I just, I just wonder why.

Every day at this time of year
I wonder time and time again
Why are kids suffering?
All of the tears 'cause being caught in the crossfire (Why?)
Somebody tell me why
As the joyous day comes along
The eldest feel there's something wrong
He's looking for Mom but she's not there
Kids are looking for reindeer in the air

[Chorus:]
She messed up again
Why?
My brother and my sister
They ain't got no toys
What am I supposed to do
When growing up for me wasn't joy?
It's gonna be a why Christmas
It's gonna be, it's gonna be a
A why Christmas

No one was there but Grandma and her friends
A time of heartache is setting in
There's nothing I can do
Just sit and feel pain run me through
I often wished they were never born
The thought of them not having no toys
Their little hearts were torn
I was young and I cried as well
I didn't have a job
But I prayed to the Lord that there'd be better days
Yes, he gave me a reason to live
He gave me a sign
But I still think to that day when

[Chorus]
Brother and my
Brother and my
Brother and my
Sister
(repeats a lot)

[Chorus ](repeats to fade out)

Cold December Nights

length: 4:11
producer: Michael McCary
co-producer: Brian McKnight, Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris
writer: Michael McCary, Shawn Stockman
Cold December nights like this make me really scared
You're not really there
And my tree is really bare
Another lonely night
No gifts, no toys underneath my tree
Can this really be
I'm singing Christmas carols
And there's no Christmas for me

[Chorus:]
Why aren't you next to me
Celebrating Christmas
Why can't you see what hurts so bad
How can you go without paying mind to my sorrow
You can't imagine
How I feel on this cold December night

The stars shine bright as the night air
And the thought of you not being here
Makes me shed a tear
And yet matters remain unclear
About why you're gone
Or if you'll ever return to this broken heart
Life is so torn apart
And God knows, Lord knows where I need to start re-building

[Chorus:]...

Do They Know

length: 3:29
co-producer: Brian McKnight, Shawn Stockman, Wanya Morris and Michael McCary
composer: Nathan Morris
lyricist: Nathan Morris
Do they know
That Jesus was born on this day to save our lives
Do they know
That he carried the sins of the world upon his heart
So that you and I could live
And we'd have an alternative
In this life

[Chorus]
Do they know what this day means
Do they know where we've been and how it should be
Tell me do they know
Do they know we should love one another
Do they know
The world will be alright only if they know

Do they know
That sharing love to each other is how we all should live
Do they know
That the reason for giving is more than what you give
And to you and your's this day
On a very special holiday
Give your love

[Chorus]

And Lord if they know
Keep them in your care
Keep them inside your heart
And help them spread the word

[Chorus until fade]

Who Would Have Thought

length: 6:07
producer: Wanya Morris
co-producer: Brian McKnight and Nathan Morris
writer: Brian McKnight, Wanya Morris
I fell in love
On a very special day
This feeling will never go away
Now I can say

That with you, my love, I'll always stay
Look at me and tell me if I'm being deceived
Cause right now this feelin' is hard to believe

[Chorus]
Who would have thought it'd be this way?
Oh, no
I never thought I'd fall in love on Christmas day
Who would have thought I'd fall in love on Christmas day?

I can't believe
That you are right here with me
The star on my Christmas tree
I want to love you endlessly

And that's the way I always want it to be (want it to be)
Standing there when the lights from the tree
Meets your eyes
I can see

That I only want you
'Cause you're all that I need

[Chorus]

I'd never fall in love on Christmas day
I never thought I'd fall in love
On Christmas, Christmas day I'd fall in love

[Chorus]

I know that Christ came down
To endure my sins and shame
But now my dear we fall in love
On this very special day

This day
Do do do do do do do do do do do hey
Thought it'd be this way
Oh, no

I never thought I'd fall in love
I never thought I'd fall in love
Who would have thought I'd fall in love on Christmas day?
