Lyrics

That time of year is here again
we wish goodwill to all men
but for some it's just pretend
a bitter act until the end
but children still sing "silent night"
the yuletide log is burning bright
the snow is lying crisp and white
so let's put up the Christmas Lights

ohhh ohhhh

Too weak to fight for the cause
just keep it safe behind closed doors
we'll hang a veil that obscures
the sorrow dripping from our pores
so raise a glass to our fine life
pretend that everything's alright
and in between the tears and fights
we'll still put up the Christmas Lights

ohhh ohhh

The children still sing "silent night"
the yuletide log is burning bright
the snow is lying crisp and white
so let's put up the Christmas Lights
just raise a glass to our fine life
pretend that everything's alright
and in between the tears and fights
we'll still put up the Christmas Lights

ohhh ohhh
