Alvin StardustSo Near To Christmas

So near to Christmas I can picture Christmas day So full of memories But, this year it won't be the same There's no mistaking, It gets colder every day So near to Christmas And yet, you're so far away So many parties That we're both invited to I won't be going – without you There's nothing I wanna do No celebrations, and no games I wanna play So near to Christmas And yet you're so far away All my friends have called and phoned They know I'm on my own I'll be sitting at home, thinking of you Hoping that you, hoping that you'll be missing me too So near to Christmas And the children count the days I see their faces, and remember When I used to dream that way My heart is aching, because your card arrived today So near to Christmas Darling you'll be far away © 2019
