lyrics

I would love to wake up
In New York City
Step out on to 34th

The Empire State in a coat of ice: Christmas
Falls on a rink in Central Park: Christmas
When I think about New York these days
I wish I knew Christmas time there

I wonder when I’ll walk along the Seine again
If I’ll ever get to feel the cold air in my lungs

The crunch from my boots on pavements: Christmas
Fake smoke, steam on the exhale: Christmas
When I think about the City of Lights these days
I wish I knew Christmas time there

But when you call up, when you call me up
It fades away, it all fades away
Yes you call up, then you call me up
It fades away, it all fades away

And though my thoughts take me far away
I’m not going anywhere
‘Cause I’m spending this December
By the isle of you
The isle of you

Light-up in the heart of the Lion City: Christmas
Falls on a rink in Central Park: Christmas
Feast with family on D-day: Christmas
The crunch from my boots on pavements: Christmas

The Empire State in a coat of ice: Christmas
Fireworks reflected on a night sea: Christmas
Fake smoke, steam on the exhale: Christmas
Choirs echoing through halls: Christmas

When I think of all the places
Where I could be spending Christmas
I find that getting to them starts by the isle of you

And though my thoughts take me far away
I’m not going anywhere
‘Cause I’m spending this December
By the isle of you
The isle of you

What do you see?
