lyrics

December of ‘04, we got a Yuletide show
the miracle of manna, an inch of snow
it didn’t melt all day
we used a trash can for a sleigh
and we still talk about it

here at decades older, I am less impressed
seems the blessing only comes with bitterness
bi-annually, at least, the pipes and asphalt will freeze
and we’ll still talk about it

if I wish for anything this year,
it would be a bigger house
with walls spaced far enough apart
to keep my loved ones out the dark
when the power grid goes out

cause I keep you in my heart
yeah, I keep you even when we are apart
and I’d keep you out of the dark
if I only could

all that you believe in can survive this one
a fairy only keeps her wings if you cheer them on
well, it’s hard to find a star
in all this godforsaken dark
so I’ll believe in you

sure, the days are colder and the nights are long
but don’t you worry, I don’t think the magic’s gone
we could light a fire
we could lift our voices higher
we can believe in you

if I wish for anything this year,
it would be a crystal ball
or the winning numbers on the wall
wouldn’t want a dime or dollar
only power to change anything at all

cause I keep you in my heart
I keep you even when we are apart
I’d keep you out of the dark
if I only could

yeah, I keep you in my heart
I keep you even when we’re worlds apart
I will keep you out of the dark
