Denison Witmer - Christmas Song
Christmas day
In the stillness that protects this day
The string of lights was strung into a tree
A string of lights was strung inside of me
I felt at peace and fell asleep
I felt at peace and slept


Chris Garneau - It's Almost Christmas!
Before mass produciton of fire place stockings
Families would make them from scratch
With patches and old scraps of blankets and clothing
It really didn't matter if they matched


Sufjan Stevens - We're Goin' to the Country!
Find a tree and put it in your house
Put a misletoe upon your mother's blouse
If you see woman dressed in black
Give her up a song and then ask for it back
We're going to the the country


Brett Dennen - The Holidays Are Here (And We're Still At War)
Pilgrims in the parking lot
Arteries clogged with blood clots
Pushing through the aisles of department stores
Neon crosses and Christmas lights
Credit card debts and brand new bikes
The holidays are here and we're still at war


Eels - Christmas Is Going To The Dogs
Get off your sled and go to bed
Don't you ever tire?
Throw a bone, I'm finally home
Curled up by the fire
Snow is falling from the sky like ashes from an urn
Sweet dreams, my little one
Now it's my turn

Well, Christmas is going to the dogs
We'd rather have chew toys than Yule logs
And things aren't looking very good, it's true
So I'll just lay here and chew


Sufjan Stevens - That Was the Worst Christmas Ever!
Going outside
Shoveling snow in the driveway
Taking our shoes
Riding a sled down the hillside
Can you say what you want?
Can you say what you want to be?
Can you be what you want?


Rilo Kiley - Xmas Cake
There's no more running water
Wrapping presents in the dark
Move into your car
Change where you park
Too bad that job caroling department stores fell through
But the new year is right in front of you

Cry into your Christmas cake
Don't know what else to do


Sufjan Stevens - It's Christmas! Let's Be Glad
Since it's Christmas, let's be glad
Even if your life's been bad
There are presents to be had


Death Cab for Cutie - Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
They're singing "Deck the Halls"
But it's not like Christmas at all
I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

Pretty lights on the tree
I'm watching them shine
You should be here with me
Baby, please come home


Bright Eyes - Blue Christmas
I'll have a blue Christmas, that's certain
When all those blue memories start hurting
You'll be doing all right, with your Christmas of white
But I'll have a blue, blue Christmas


Ron Sexsmith - Maybe This Christmas
Maybe this Christmas will mean something more.

Sufjan Stevens - Hey Guys! It's Christmas Time!
We can walk out after dark
Because it's Christmas time
Colored lights glow from the park
Because it's Christmas time
And the bells on the reindeer sled say
It's Christmas time
And the quilts on the back of the bed say
It's Christmas time


Damien Rice - Happy Xmas (War Is Over)
And a very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear


Tom McRae - Wonderful Christmastime
The moon is right
The spirits up
We're here tonight
And that's enough
Simply having
A wonderful christmastime


Leona Naess - Christmas
Like christmas stays with you
Walk through darkened streets as we lay true
Lights from your heart lead me to you


Bright Eyes - White Christmas
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white


Lisa Hannigan - Silent Night
Silent night, broken night
All is fallen when you take your flight
I found some hate for you
Just for show
You found some love for me
Thinking I'd go
Don't keep me from crying to sleep
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, moonlit night
Nothing's changed
Nothing is right
I should be stronger than weeping alone
You should be weaker than sending me home
I can't stop you fighting to sleep
Sleep in heavenly peace


Rachael Yamagata - River
It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace

Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

But it don't snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm gonna make a lot of money
And I'm gonna quit this crazy scene

Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on


Sufjan Stevens - Sister Winter
Now my heart is
Returned to sister winter
Now my heart is
As cold as ice

All my friends
I've returned to sister winter
All my friends
I apologise, apologise

And my friends
I've returned to wish you all the best
And my friends
I've returned to wish you a happy Christmas


Bright Eyes - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
