You wouldn't be up at night,
if it wasn't for Christmas lights.
This year has moved in unexpected ways.
Where the pillow should reach your head,
there's a sorrow that comes instead
and stays with you until the morning light.

Dreams are hatching, no one's watching
Days are endless, never finished
(sing you to sleep, sing you to sleep)
Want the past, but you can't have it
Silent blessing, finally resting

They all try to search for you,
but there's nowhere to send them to.
The family room is filled with empty space.
The television starts to sing,
but it doesn't say anything
and no one's saying anything at all.

(sing you to sleep, sing you to sleep)
Dreams are hatching, no one's watching
Days are endless, never finished
Want the past, but you can't have it
Silent blessing, finally resting

(sing you to sleep, sing you to sleep)
Burn the bridge that leads to places
Where ghosts from Christmas never left us

Each new year brings hope and meaning
