Song Meaning
Verse 1
Remember last Christmas eve
When we sat next to our first tree
Ornaments reflected light
Of a candle in the night
Verse 2
And I gave you a music box
Back then it seemed like so much
We watched it go round and round
As the melodies are unwound
Verse 3
But all these things are now long gone
And not to be wished upon again
Verse 4
But the music box continues to turn
Candle in the window continues to burn
But I know they're just memories
Christmas past call, you and me yea
Verse 5
Remember that old fireplace
That held the room in warm embrace
As we watched for Christmas ghosts
Fire held the shadows close
Verse 6
But now upon this Christmas scene
The candle wax of melted dreams
And ornaments of shattered glass
Now belonging to the past
Verse 7
All these things, now long gone
And not to be wished upon again
Verse 8
But the music box continues to turn
The candle in the window continues to burn
But I know they're just memories
Like Christmas past call, you and me
Verse 9
I miss you baby
Oh yes, I do
And it's been far too long girl
Since I last laid eyes on you
Verse 10
I got the lights upon the Christmas tree
I got the candle lit for you to see
And beside this window I will wait
For inside this night it's not too late
Verse 11
I got the lights upon the Christmas tree
(The candles burning)
I got the candle lit for you to see
(You know I'm gonna wait)
And beside this window I will wait
(The clock keeps turning)
For inside this night it's not too late
(But I know it's not, I know it's not too late)
Verse 12
I've got the lights upon the Christmas tree
I've got the candle lit for you to see
And beside this window I will wait
For inside this night
I know it's not too late
Verse 13
