Christmas by Morning

Written By :David Jane

It’s four in the morning my darling

Headlights reflect in the snow

Christmas will be here by morning

And I’ve still got miles to go

 

 

I couldn’t afford any presents

And I don’t got time for a show

But hold on tight to my promise

And promise to never let go

 

 

I’ve been miles and miles away chasing

The life of a millionaire

And winter in the city never looked so pretty

But it’s hard when your heart isn’t there

 

 

There’s nowhere I can run my baby

Nowhere left to hide

I’ve opened up myself for you

My gift is my whole life

So hold onto those memories

And hold onto my eyes

And if you’ll be there waiting for me

I’ll be right outside

 

 

It’s six in the morning my darling

The Sun is beginning to rise

I hope you don’t mind my calling

I’m still chasing that look in your eyes

 

 

Winter in the city never looked so pretty

But it’s hard when your heart isn’t there

Just the late memories that the air won’t freeze

And for the rest of it I never cared

 

 

There’s nowhere I can run my baby

Nowhere left to hide

I’ve opened up myself for you

My gift is my whole life

So hold onto those memories

And hold onto my eyes

And if you’ll be there waiting for me

I’ll be right outside

 

 

The negative space I’ve been trying to trace

Falls apart in the crisp bitter air

So just wait by the window as the winter winds blow

And by morning my heart will be there

 

 

There’s nowhere I can run my baby

Nowhere left to hide

I’ve opened up myself for you

My gift is my whole life

So hold onto those memories

And hold onto my eyes

And if you’ll be there waiting for me

I’ll be right outside
