Two For Christmas


Kids all grown and have their own thing
Family too far away...
Just two for Christmas this year
Never been just two

No need for trees and shiny things
Or all the presents and food
Just two for Christmas this year
Never been just two

Quietly to bed on Christmas eve
Wont feed the reindeer this year
Just two for Christmas this year
Never been just two

Strange to wake on Christmas Day
No laughing kids to watch
Just two for Christmas this year
Never been just us two.

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
