Lyrics

You and me upon the eve of Christmas Day are not asleep.
We stay up late and celebrate the days.
The sun went down into the ground.
And we exhale real heavy now.
The fireplace illuminates your face.

At the closing of another year, I hold ya like a souvenir
Of our trip around the atmosphere again.
There ain't nothin underneath the tree better than you been to me.
I thank God I got ya on the eve again.

You and me upon the eve are feeling high as southbound geese.
The words fall from our drunken tongues like snow.
This record's side played 20 times; the same old songs but we don't mind.
Our talk rolls on and on and on it goes.

At the closing of another year, I hold ya like a souvenir
Of our trip around the atmosphere again.
There ain't nothin underneath the tree better than you been to me.
I thank God I got ya on the eve again.

You and me upon the eve of Christmas Day don't go to sleep.
We'll be a mess tomorrow that's for sure.
For what it's worth, in all this earth, in all places I have searched,
I've never found a love as sound as yours.
