Lyrics
I thought I'd seen all the lights
And sung all the songs
I thought the holiday
Lasted a bit too long
I never shed any tears
When Christmas was through
Until I celebrated one with you
And now
I cry the day
that I take the tree down
I want the season
To last all year round
And I'm surrounded by
these memories
It's almost like you're here
with me
It's strange how things all change
When touched by love
We treasure things
we never thought much of

I cry the day
that I take the tree down
I want the season
To last all year round
And I'm dreaming of
Christmases when
We'll be together again
It's strange how things all change
When touched by love
We treasure things
we never thought much of

I cry the day
that I take the tree down
I want the season
To last all year round
And I'm dreaming of Christmases
When we'll be together
Again
