lyrics

Ice had frozen the storm screen tight
I tried rattling it free
On our way out the door that night
Off to church on Christmas Eve

Something ran ‘cross the road so dark
Gone as fast as was seen
Full moon followed us from afar
In the car on Christmas Eve

All those songs that I knew so well
Sweet refrains I would sing
Chiming loud like a steeple bell
Through the night on Christmas Eve

All that light they once shined on me
When I needed it most
It went dark like an air-starved flame
Silent as the Holy Ghost

You won’t know who your heroes are
Till they let you down
Empty home, the front door ajar
Letting all the warm air out

The fire is slowly dying
And my dear, we're still goodbying
But as long as you love me so...
The fire is slowly dying
And my dear, we're still goodbying
But as long as you love me so...

Ice had frozen the storm screen tight
I tried rattling it free
On our way out the door that night
Off to church on Christmas Eve
