Patti LaBelle – Every Year, Every Christmas lyrics

I don't know how love could do this to me
I've waited and waited for someone I'll never see
But I'm so sentimental and I'm so hopeful you'll be there
Here I am every year, every Christmas

I've wished for you in my heart and in my head
I got my answer that first moment we met
Oh yes, I believed you as you told me, as you said
You'd be here every year, every Christmas

There must be a lesson for me to learn
If you don't trust in love, you'll get nothing in return
Why should I be lonely? Don't tell me it's right
Oh, I have my pride but I'd rather be with you tonight

So much emotion, ooh, it's driving me mad
But I'll take my chances with these feelings that I have
And I'll come back to this same corner, to this corner where we met
I'll be here every year, every Christmas

Mere words can't explain the pain and the fear
'Cause oh, I wonder, yes, yes, I wonder
Are you gonna leave me standing here?
Today's almost over but I don't want to leave
Has my heart, tell me, has my heart made a fool out of me?

My friends gather 'round me with holiday cheer
They say, to forget you, to let you go 'cause you're not here
Well, I can't keep explaining
What they'll never, oh, they'll never understand
'Cause I'm gonna be here

They don't know why I'm here every year
Oh, they don't understand why I'm here
Oh, I'm waiting, oh yes, I waited
Oh, every year

Oh, let me make it clear
I'll be here every year, every Christmas
Yes, I will, yes, I will, oh, I will
Every Christmas, Christmas, Christmas
Oh, I'll be waiting for you

Merry Christmas everyone
Mr. Luther Vandross, we love you
