I don't know how love could do this to me I've waited and waited for someone I never see But I'm so sentimental, and I'm so hopeful you'll be there So, here I am every year, every Christmas
I've wished for you in my heart and in my head And I got my answer that first moment that we met And, oh yes, I believed you as you told me, as you said You'd be here every year, every Christmas
There must be a lesson for me to learn If you don't trust in love, you'll get nothing in return Why should I be lonely, don't tell me it's fine I have my pride, but I'd rather be with you tonight
So much emotion, it's driving me mad But I'll take my chances with there feelings that I have And I'll come back to this same corner where we met And I'll be here every year, every Christmas
Mere words can't explain the pain and the fear 'Cause oh, I wonder, yes, I wonder are you gonna leave me standing here Today's alomost over, but I don't want to be leave Has my heart made a fool out of me?
My friends gather round me with holiday cheer They say to forget you, to let you go 'cause you're not here Well, I can't keep explaining what they'll never understand And why I'm here every year, every Christmas I return every year, every Christmas I come here every year, every Christmas
