It's Christmas and we walk alone
Two strangers with no one to miss us
On our own
Out in the cold

Trudging onward
Braving a harsh winter storm
You and I met passing by
And now our spirits feel warm

I don't have anyone at home to talk to
And you don't have anything to do
So I'll spend my Christmas with you
I'll spend my Christmas with you

It's Christmas and we are in love
With the way that the soft snowflakes kiss us
From far above
The blustery breeze

Trudging onward
Braving a harsh winter storm
You and I met passing by
And now our spirits feel warm

I believe that Jesus is truly the only way
I celebrate Christmas because it's his birthday

I don't have anyone at home to talk to
And you don't have anything to do
So I'll spend my Christmas with you
I'll spend my Christmas with you
I'll spend my Christmas with you
I'll spend my Christmas with you

    I'll spend my Christmas with you

    ...for some reason this song sounds sad to me. even though its probably not meant to be. it just sounds lonely.
    a lot of his songs sound somewhat lonely.

    General CommentOnly Adam Young really knows how to harness the magic of Christmas in a song as sweet and simple of this. Many of his songs adress the etheral, spiritual quality of things as simple as vacations and snow, and deeper things such as love or, as shown here, Christmas. Both sounds and words are used to show how truly special these things are. And it goes completely unseen by people who listen to music just for the sounds. If that is why you listen to music, just to hear noises, then you should be ashamed to bash musicians if you have no idea what they're trying to do with their music. And if you're a musician and your sounds have no meaning or reason to them, you will most likely be in the top 10. Owl City only made iTunes top 10 because Fireflies is so catchy. Top 10 has nothing to do with talent.

    General CommentI think it's about a guy who comes home to his childhood home for Christmas and feeling lonely because he doesn't feel quite at home there anymore, so he goes out for a walk by himself and meets a girl walking alone as well, so they spend the holidays together.
    I like to think they spend every Christmas after together too :)

    My InterpretationI think that this is about the fact that if you don't have to spend Christmas with your family. Just go out there and find some one to spend it with. It's not just condemned to just family.
