about

Michael talking to Ground Control Magazine's Daryl Darko Barnett about this track:

"...I had the little riff and the jangly kinda chorus playing my Tele through a short delay and I was trying to find the words. I kept singing “It’s Christmas” and then the next line sorta wordlessly, just looking for the sound of it, over and over, until it just came out: “sweetheart”. I really feel that Summer gave that to me. Like she was sitting here looking over my shoulder while I played and just whispered the word into my ear because I could barely sing it for crying the first several times it came out of my mouth... "

lyrics

In dreams I weep to wake from
Because I'm bound to you
Oh, thank god for the day
I was ever found by you
The snow was falling
And so did I
So sweet and kind and true
It made me cry
To ever have to say goodbye

It's Christmas, Sweetheart

I can feel your footstep on the stair
Smell your ginger sweetness in the air
And I know you're everywhere

It's Christmas, Sweetheart

I can feel your footstep on the stair
All I want is just for you
To take me with you there

In dreams I weep to wake from
Because I'm bound to you
Oh, thank god for the day
I was ever found by you
So I'll remember, darling
What you said
About a life of love, so better led

It's Christmas, Sweetheart

(Spoken)
Michael: Happy Christmas, Summer.
Summer: I can't wait until you're here!
