We welcome Winter's wind, the colors of our bones.
Will you collect me and compound?
And clear your mind before the ground gets cold.
Embers in air, I know it's hard when you're alone, the wind in your hair.
If you were a snowflake, impossibly I'd be the same shape as you.
Spilled coffee in the mornings, you still adore me,
And that's what I love about the cold nights,
'cause your jacket fits me, just my size.

Woah oh oh, woah oh oh.
Baby, love is like the holidays,
and everyone's here, and this is sincere.
Check that list you made for Christmas day,
'Cause I've been on the rooftop all night.
Giving out gifts to the world so every boy and girl
Can feel the way that I do, every time I see you.

And it's these subtle things that make our spirit's warm,
And it's the comfort of carols sung, and ribbons hung,
And Christmas lights on distant back road drives.
Embers in air, you know it's hard being so far, so far.
It's a test of strength, but all it takes,
Is a moment sitting by your side.
Come morning when I wake up, you fix your makeup.
Lighting the fire up all night, we'll drink hot chocolate, we'll sing and sigh.

Woah oh oh, woah oh oh.
Baby, love is like the holidays,
and everyone's here, and this is sincere.
Check that list you made for Christmas day,
'Cause I've been on the rooftop all night.
Giving out gifts to the world so every boy and girl
Can feel the way that I do, every time I see you.

I'm coming home to the Midwest,
Chasing down winter wonderlands.
You take your poinsetta, you tell me what is better
Than being home and right by your side?
I'm driving home but this ice storm is making this a test of strength and time.
Miracles real tonight, the feeling's right.
The decorations fall into place.

Baby, love is like the holidays,
'cause everyone's here, and this is sincere.
Check that list you made for Christmas day,
'Cause I've been on the rooftop all night.
Giving out gifts to the world so every boy and girl
Can feel the way that I do, every time I see you.

Baby, love is like the holidays,
'cause everyone's here, and this is sincere.
Check that list you made for Christmas day,
'Cause I've been on the rooftop all night.
Giving out gifts to the world so every boy and girl
Can feel the way that I do, every time I see you.
