  • I wish, I wish I could hear you say my name
    I wish, I wish you were here on Christmas Day
    I wish, I wish you made my wish come true again
    It's you I miss, yeah

    But when I look back at us
    I know we almost had it all
    Tell me now, it's the night?
    The snow is gonna fall
    'Cause there's no going back
    Still I need you to know that
    Christmas ain't the same anymore, no

    I think of you every day, every night
    You said you needed space and you needed time
    And I want you to know what I did wasn't right
    Wish I could change your mind
    I wish, I wish

    I wish, I wish I didn't say goodbye so fast
    I wish, I wish this Christmas I could have you back
    I wish, I wish I cherished everything we had
    I just want your kiss, I

    But when I look back at us
    I know we almost had it all
    Tell me now, it's the night?
    The snow is gonna fall
    'Cause there's no going back
    Still I need you to know that
    Christmas ain't the same anymore, no

    I think of you every day, every night
    You said you needed space and you needed time
    And I want you to know what I did wasn't right
    Wish I could change your mind
    I wish, I wish

    Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
    Doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
    And I want you to know what I did wasn't right
    Wish I could change your mind
    (I wish, I wish) Hmm

    It's not much I'm asking, baby (not much)
    All I want this year is you, babe, believe me
    If I don't get you under my tree
    Then I don't know how I'm gonna be

    I think of you every day, every night (every night)
    You said you needed space and you needed time (you needed time)
    And I want you to know what I did wasn't right (it wasn't right)
    Wish I could change your mind
    I wish, I wish

    (Oh whoa, I wish)
    I think of you every day, every night
    You said you needed space and you needed time (you needed time)
    I want you to know what I did wasn't right
    Wish I could change your mind
