In a boy’s life
All the things going wrong
Momentarily felt alright
With Christmas in the air
And school nowhere in sight
We’d set everything aside for once
Nobody dared to fight
Mom loved dad and dad loved back
The gifts made that clear that night

I’ve been countin’ on
That rescue by Christmas
That time every year
Was it just me or was everyone
Glowin’ like no one was glowin’ all year?

Our holiday records play loud enough
Sometimes it’s tough to talk
If you need me
I’ll be out shovelin’ the walk
We keep the Christmas lights bright enough
Sometimes it’s tough to see
The faces that we force
As we gather around the tree

I’m still waitin’ on
That magic I’m missing
Though Christmas draws near
The snow’s out, the tree’s on, the family’s here
But the feeling’s more elusive
With each passing year

I wouldn’t trade it for anything
