[Jonghyun] Last christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

[All] Last christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

[Jonghyun]Once bitter and twice shy
I keep my distance but you still catch my eye
Tell me baby, do you recognize me?
Well, it's been a year, it doesn't surprise me

[Onew] (Merry christmas) I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying 'I love you, ' I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again

[Taemin] Last christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

[All] Last christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

[Key] A crowded room, friends with tired eyes
I'm hiding from you and your soul of ice
My god, I thought you were someone to rely on
Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on

[Minho] A face of a lover with a fire in his heart
A man undercover but you tore him apart
[Jonghyun] Ah~ Ooh hoo~ now I've found a real love
You'll never fool me again

[Onew] Last christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

[All] Last christmas I gave you my heart [Jonghyun](gave you my heart)
But the very next day you gave it away [Onew](you gave it away, oh)
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special [Jonghyun](special)

[All] A face of a lover with a fire in his heart [Onew](gave you my heart)
A man undercover but you tore him apart (Ah~ Ooh hoo~)
[Minho] (Maybe next year)
[All] I'll give it to someone
I'll give it to someone special [Jonghyun](special)

[Jonghyun]Someone

    This makes me so happy. I love the way they sound when they sing in korean but something about hearing what their voices sound like singing it english is just heart-melting. I was also really impressed (i always am) with how good onew's english pronounciation is omo... Makes me imagine having a conversation with him in my own language. And minho... Your deep voice is just as soothing in another language hehe

    I know exo is getting a christmas album this year, but i hope someday shinee will get their very own christmas album (in korean or in english! ) because i would definitely buy it and listen to it all the time!
