Somewhere in, in the distant night
I hear Christmas bells
The gentle snow keeps falling down
On people who are homeward bound
That’s the way it’s always been
The circle never really ends
Christmas seems to come and go
From some place that I don’t know
Holly leaves and Christmas trees
It’s that time of year
Lights aglow and mistletoe
Don’t mean a thing when you’re not here
As I walk, walk this lonely street
The sound of snow beneath my feet
I’ll think of how, how it used to be
When holly leaves and Christmas trees
Used to mean so much to me
Holly leaves and Christmas trees
