Ringo Starr – Christmas Eve lyrics

By Richard Starkey and Mark Hudson

It's christmas and you're not here,
The snow is falling down, like my tears.
I see your presents by the tree,
I can't believe you're not with me
On christmas, christmas eve.

It's christmas with stars above,
How many times has it been said A time for love?
And underneath the mistletoe
I'm standing here all alone
On christmas, christmas eve.

I hear your voice
I see your smile
You were my christmas song.
But now you're gone, now you're gone.

It's christmas, it seems so long,
The lights are all around the tree but not turned on.
I saw your footprints in the snow
I'd never thought you'd really go
On christmas, christmas eve.

It's christmas.

It's christmas eve.
