Comin Home for Christmas (lyrics)

I heard the carolers singin’ downtown
songs about jingle bells and silent nights
Snow’s starting to come down
through the coloured lights, you’re on my mind

I bought a tree, just last week
But I won’t decorate it til you’re here with me
been holding off, just a few more days
It’s the hardest time of year for this waiting game

CHORUS
You’re coming home for Christmas
you help to make it my favorite time of year
Sit by the fire and reminisce about
Waitin’ at the window, watchin’ for reindeer
and ol’ St Nick, we’re not sure how we
made it on his list, but now the best part of the season is
you’re comin home for Christmas

We’ll dust off the song books
and gather round the old piano
Sippin’ on some egg nog
stumblin through the tunes we used to know and

oh we’ll deck the halls, and hang our stockings, for old time sake
I been holding off, just a few more days
It’s the hardest time of year for this waiting game

CHORUS

We’ll decorate the tree as soon as you’re right here with me
You’re comin home, just a few more days, ya I can hardly wait

CHORUS
