Merry Christmas, Lonely New Year

from by New York Holiday Singers

lyrics

Woke up to the cold about a quarter past eight
Set out my breakfast for one
Grabbed my shopping list, bundled up tight
Wrapped up in my coat & gloves

Tonight I'll light the tree
And set the table for two
Tonight it's Christmas Eve
And it's been 24 weeks since I saw you...

And I'll be merry on Christmas
But it's a lonely New Year
'Cause we've been living at a distance
But Yuletide brings me cheer.
And we'll be merry on Christmas
But have a lonely New Year
Because that's when I will miss this
Here, alone, without you near.

Everything is perfect and warm
We'll pop some bubbly and dance
I picked my playlist, I made it months ago
I'm leaving nothing up to happenstance

Tomorrow we can go
Walk through the city, see the tree & lights
But for tonight the glow
That's comin' from the fireplace
Will show me my favorite sights...

And I'll be merry on Christmas
But it's a lonely New Year
'Cause we've been living at a distance
But Yuletide brings me cheer.
And we'll be merry on Christmas
But have a lonely New Year
Because that's when I will miss this
Here, alone, without you near.

But when it comes to Christmas
And we're standin' at the tree
Celebrating Christmas
There's one more gift to you from me
You'll remember this Christmas
My love, my love, my love, my love,
Because I wanna be with you
On New Year's too
And spend my whole
Life with you

And we'll be merry on Christmas
And it's a happy New Year
We've lived and gone the distance
But now I'm on my knee right here
So tell me, is this merry Christmas?
And will we celebrate this year?
Because I never wanna miss this:
Your smile and happy tears.
Wash away all doubts and fears
And with one word when your throat clear,
They'll all be happy New Years
They'll all be happy New Years
