"Christmas Child" as written by and Carter Gravatt Barry Thomas Privett....
Winter's eve is creeping in
On December 1st, on a cold wind
On the pantry door hangs a calendar
counting down the days with their little doors

And I'm just a Christmas child
I lie upon the floor
By the firelight in my home

Winter's eve, December 4
The tree is up and the lights adorn
I push the cloves into a tangerine
Fetch the holly from a neighbor's tree

And I'm just a Christmas child
I lie upon the floor
By the firelight in my home

And I will lie, lie, lie, awake
I will lie awake
And I will stay right here
Until I fade away
Three weeks til Christmas Day

Winter's eve is nearer still
The house, she creaks and the wind chills
Howling wind but I remain
Safely by the lighted pane

The frost, right upon the glass
You see the treeline fade
Into the dark of night right on time

And I will lie, lie, lie awake
I will lie awake
And I will stay right here
Until I fade away
I will lie, lie, lie awake
Lie, lie, lie awake
And I will stay right here
Until I fade away
Two weeks til Christmas Day

And I will lie, lie, lie awake
I will lie awake
And I will stay right here
Until I fade away
I will lie, lie, lie awake
Lie, lie, lie awake
And I will stay right here
Until I fade away
I will lie, lie, lie awake
Lie, lie, lie awake
And I will stay right here
Until I fade away
One week til Christmas Day
One week til Christmas Day
One week til Christmas Day
