(Instrumental) INTRO
VERSE I

Snow is falling, lights are twinkling
Bells are ringing, folks are singing.
Christmas cheer..... is everywhere
CHORUS
I cry your name in the night time
I see your eyes in every face that passes by
I guess there never was a right time
Christmas time's no time to say goodbye
Christmas time's no time to say goodbye
Ladidah, ladidah

VERSE II
Lives apart, lonely hearts
Wishing for a fresh start
.......Desperation fills the air
CHORUS
I cry your name in the night time
I see your eyes in every face that passes by
I guess there never was a right time
Christmas time's no time to say goodbye
Christmas time's no time to say goodbye
Ladidah, ladidah

BRIDGE
Every face,...a ghost of Christmas past
Regrets ...the only things that lasts, that lasts, that lasts
DOWN CHORUS
I cry your name in the night time
I see your eyes in every face that passes by
I guess there never was a right time
Christmas time's no time to say goodbye
Christmas time's no time to say goodbye
Christmas time's no time to say goodbye
Christmas time's no time to say goodbye
OUTRO
Ladidah, Ladidaaaah
Oooooh, ooooooh, oooh ooh oooh
