Christmas Day
oleh: Dido



The young gentleman came riding paston a snow-blue winter's dayHe asked to drink by our fire andI was pleased to let him stayHe drank there quietly for a whileand then he turned and said to me
Your eyes are greenLike summer grassYour lips are redlike a fresh-cut roseYour hair is softlike an Irish streamAnd your voice is filled with sweet beauty
And the last words I heard him say wereI shall return for you my love on Christmas Day
And the night will come but I won't sleepas I watch the stars that lead himI cannot place where he isbut still my heart goes with himI'm saving all my Sunday clothes for the daythat I'll be leavingFather knowsMy sister knows
And my friendsThey're happy for meAnd the priest he saysyou should thank Godfor the blessing of such beauty
And the last words I heard him say wereI shall return for you my love on Christmas DayI shall return for you my love on Christmas Day
On Christmas DayI shall return for youMy love...
And the last words I heard him sayWere the last words I ever heard him say
I shall return for you my love on Christmas DayI said I will return on Christmas DayAnd yes, I shall return on Christmas dayI shall return, for you, on Christmas DayMy loveI will return on Christmas DayI shall return, my love, on Christmas DayOn Christmas Day.
