1. Christmas night, another fight, tears we’ve cried are flood,

      G                                                                 C      - D

    got all kinds of poison in, of poison in my blood.

        G                                                                        C     - D

    I took my feet to Oxford Street, trying to right a wrong,

             G                                                                                      C      - D

    just walk away, those windows say, but I can't believe she's gone.

 

                 G

    When you're still waiting for the snow to fall,

       C                                   D

    doesn't really feel like Christmas at all.

2. Up above candles on air flicker, oh, they flicker and they float,

                G                                                  D                  D7

    but I'm up here holding on to all those chandeliers of hope.

                       Em                                      C                  

    Like some drunken Elvis singing, I go singing out of tune,

                  G                                                D                  D7

    saying how I always loved you, darling, and I always will.

 

                       G

    Oh, when you're still waiting for the snow to fall,

       C                                   D

    doesn't really feel like Christmas at all.
