lyrics

The way we said we’d make it out
We gotta go and see what all the fuss is about
But then we found the perfect costumes
So we stayed home in birthday suits

The way a birthday can be fun
You go out to a bar get drinks from everyone
But somethin’ like magic’s floating in the air
Because you know he standing there

You are my holiday
You turn this work into play
I’ve come two thousand miles to say
How much I love

The way this season wears you down
The weather takes a plunge along with your bank account
But look at us finding ways to generate heat
And every gift just makes us more free

The way that baby Jesus came
Out of a virgin must have been quite the pain
Why celebrate something so removed and unclear
When we’ve got our own miracle right here

You are my holiday
You turn this work into play
I’ve come two thousand miles to say
How much I love

The way you’re like a child in all the very best places
But how you’re like a man where it counts
Your spirit and mine stretch across the sky
While we are patience exemplified

The way the new year is yet to come
But my resolutions have already begun
With each passing day I am born anew
As I keep discovering you
So I’m gonna keep on discovering you

My holiday
You turn this work into play
I’ve come two thousand miles to say
How much I love

This holiday
You turn this work into play
I’ve come two thousand miles to say
How much I love
How much I love
How much I love
How much I love
How much I love
