  • We put the lights up on the tree
    And all the presents underneath
    Light the fire, it's getting cold
    Another year of, "Will it snow?"
    Mixing lager and champagne
    Somethin' I'll never do again
    'Round the table, banter flows
    Prayin' no one rocks the boat

    Still I know
    This picture's not quite right
    There's someone on your mind
    First Christmastime without him by your side
    I know
    The sound of Christmas bells
    They never say farewell
    So we laugh, we shed a tear
    For those who can't be here

    We're drinking sherry just because
    Confessin' all our Christmas love
    Watch Home Alone for the thousandth time
    It's the only movie that we all like

    But I know
    This picture's not quite right
    There's someone on my mind
    First Christmastime without him by our side
    I know
    He loved these Christmas bells
    'Cause they never say farewell
    So we laugh, we shed a tear
    For those who can't be here

    For those who can't be here
    For those who can't be here (the bells ring out for them)
    For those who can't be here (the bells ring out for them)
    For those who can't be here (the bells ring out for them)
    For those who can't be here (the bells ring out for them)
    For those who can't be here Writer/s: Thomas Alexander Walker
