He was born so far away
So the story's told
We remember Christmas day
When winter days grow cold

With the time it passes by
We put away the trim
Then we live and wonder why
We can't remember Him

The Christmas star shines once a year
And then it fades away
Keep the spirit in your heart
It's Christmas everyday
(Christmas everyday)

It's not the bells and it's not the snow
And it's not the gifts we get
But He was born so long ago
It's easy to forget

Peace on earth, goodwill to men
But men can't go alone
We get lost along the way
But He can bring us home

Remember Him throughout the year
Without the star above
He left us all a Christmas gift
He left the gift of love

The Christmas star shines once a year
And then it fades away
Keep the spirit in your heart
And it's Christmas everyday
