"The Only Gift" as written by and Maria Christensen Jeff Franzel....
I was makin' my list
I was checkin' it twice
In the middle of this, I got tears in my eyes
For in my foolish heart, there was one simple truth
The only gift I wanted was you
I was trimming the tree
I was stringing the lights
While the radio played "Silent Night"
There were presents you sent
Though there were quite a few
The only gift I wanted was you

[Chorus:]
You need to be home with me
Alone with me
Holding me next to the Christmas tree
Kissing under the mistletoe
As candles glow
Please come home soon
It's not the same without you

As the bitter-sweet night had come to an end
I was saying goodbye to our family and friends
And they all wished me well
And I knew that I knew
The only gift I wanted was you

[Chorus]

Deck the halls with boughs of holly
Fa la la la la la la
Ohhh, ohhh
The only gift I wanted was you

[Chorus]

I was makin' my list
I was checkin' it twice
In the middle of this, I got tears in my eyes
For in my wishful heart, there was one simple truth
The only gift I wanted was you
For in my wishful heart, there was one simple truth
The only gift I wanted was you

    General CommentI kind of like this song. Each of the members of this band has a very unique voice, and all of them get a chance to blatantly use it in this song. The lyrics get me in a mushy, christmas-like mood, and I like it. :)
