He said he's going away
He doesn't know for how long
But it's gonna be okay

Time was standing still for her
She put up ribbons on the front porch
Alone, at night, with the lights
In the trees, glowing
But she was only missing him
She sings

Chorus:
Oh, I wish
For you to be home in time
Mistletoe,
I can't fall asleep tonight
Play your cards right
And by midnight I might
Find you underneath my tree
Just for me

She said Jesus I haven't done any wrong
I haven't asked for much
Until I realized I can't have what I want

I know that he is strong
I just don't think that he should be gone
For so long

Chorus:
Oh, I wish
For you to be home in time
Mistletoe,
I can't fall asleep tonight
Play your cards right
And by midnight I might
Find you underneath my tree
Just for me

The clock struck twelve
He stepped off the plane
Uniform in hand
He got in a taxi
Said Sir take me home
I've done the best I can
But I've got a sweetheart
And I need her in my arms tonight

The doorbell rang
The lights were spinning fast
They found a young man
But they're not quite sure
How the car had crashed

I know it's Christmas night
I know it's late at night
It's too late, to save him tonight

She cried

Chorus:
All I wished
Was you to be home in time
Mistletoe,
I won't fall asleep tonight
Play my cards right
And by twilight I might
Wake up from this dream
To you and me

He said he's going away
He doesn't know for how long
But it's gonna be okay
