  • No more trouble,
    In this town.
    Silent night, for a change.

    Brand new year,
    Coming up ahead.
    You know its been so long,
    Since I rang one in?

    I close my eyes,
    Think about the path I took.
    Just when I think these times,
    Have gotten the best of me.

    I can see my mother in the kitchen.
    My father on the floor,
    Watching television.
    It's a wonderful life.

    Cinnamon candles burning.
    Snowball fights outside.
    Smile below each nose and above each chin.

    Stomp my boots before I go back in.

    I wasted my wishes,
    On Saturday nights.
    Boy what I would give,
    For just one more.

    I soften my heart

    Shocked the world.
    Do you hear my voice?
    Do you know my name?
    Light my way,
    Lift my head.
    Light my way, I can see my mother in the kitchen.

    My father on the floor,
    Watching television.
    It's a wonderful life.

    Cinnamon candles burning.
    Snowball fights outside.
    Smile below each nose and above each chin.

    Family all together.
    Presents piled high.
    Frost on all the windows,
    What a wonderful night.

    Cinnamon candles burning.
    Snowball fights outside.
    Smile below each nose and above each chin.

    So happy they found me,
    Love was all around me.
    Stomp my boots before I go back in.Writer/s: Brandon Flowers, Dave Brent Keuning, Mark August Stoermer, Ronnie Jr. Vannucci
