Open up the windows, the room needs airing out It's been empty for a year It's just like you remember, the best that I could do It just needs one last vacuum through There's fake snow on the mantelpiece And a wreath hanging on the door Come home, it's all waiting for you The lights with their coloured hues, and painted baubles Her flight is late, it's a weather delay An Australian summer storm She's looking tired 'Oh, work's been crazy this year I thought I'd never make it here And I know that it's been too long I see the lights with their coloured glow And I'm home, but it's not the same With all the candy canes and fake snow' Pull apart the cracker, put on the silly hat And smile for the photograph There's one more piece of pav left, I saved it just for you And the last of the cherries too There's fake snow on the mantelpiece And cards from your childhood friends It's home for this Christmas night And it'll be alright in the end There's fake snow on the mantelpiece And tinsel wrapped round the tree You're home, and darling that's enough So settle in my love, next to me You're home
My Song 03:57
Here in my song I keep the broken parts of me I've laid them out for all to see Here in my song And you can come in I'll show you my darkness and my sin I've built sturdy walls to keep them in Here in my song And it's made from finest sorrow And the lessons that it taught I wove words around my heartbreak To bind the pain it brought Here in my song Sing it with me So I know I'm not alone And I'll lend you strength to match my own Here in my song We'll drown it out All the fear and the self-doubt I'll show you what love is all about Here in my song And I'm building up new bridges From these precious shards of truth Well they cost me blood and tears But I'm giving them to you Here in my song Here in my song I'd been carrying so much hurt I had to find somewhere to put it down It's got a place in my song now And it's made from finest sorrow And all the things it taught It might have cost me dear But I've bound the pain it brought Here in my song Here in my song
