Lyrics

Christmas Eve With You

By

Michael C. Slack


Verse 1

Merry Christmas, Love,
Good to see you again
Seems a lifetime since you went away.
No, no problems, no worries
The kids're all fine
They're more like you every day.
And no more cryin' all night long
Wondering why mom is gone.
They're living their lives
And taking that chance
To choose a life of their own.

Chorus

Seems the end of the world when you lose your love
Sun and stars no longer shine.
You live a lifetime of tears through millions of years
Before any light flickers inside.
But we all find new life in our own special ways -
Things we do, folks we meet, hope from above
So this Christmas Eve I'm telling you
You live forever in us, my love.



Verse 2

Yeah, tomorrow's Christmas
With the whole family
Just like we all used to do.
Tad's a whirlwind
Lynn's still wild as your hair
Amy's just as brainy as you.
We did what we dreamed -
Made a family like good wine
And as I sit here with you
I know what you'd say
You'd say they turned out just fine.

Verse 3

But tonight's Christmas Eve
And it's just you and me
Not just some picture in some old frame
This snapshot brings memories of our world-class love
No eternity could ever tame.
And in the mornin' when I see the kids
Gathered 'round that tree
My life will start all over again
'Cause seein' them, I see you and me.

Repeat Chorus

Tag

And in the mornin' when I see the kids
Gathered 'round that tree
My life will start all over again
'Cause seein' them, I see you and me.
