Track Name: David Groves - Home For The Holidays
Home for the Holidays

All of the streets are covered in snow
A choir carols outside the window
All the wrapping paper is yesterday's news
And this white Christmas is turning out to be quite blue

Hollywood movie happy endings, well they don't exist within the walls of this home
and 34th street is just a street down the road
there's no one else underneath the mistletoe
because this year, this year I'm alone.

All of the streets are covered in snow
A choir carols outside the window
All the wrapping paper is yesterday's news
And this white Christmas is turning out to be quite blue
Track Name: David Groves - Christmas Valentine
Christmas Valentine

Tonight, Christmas songs are burning in my chest
A slow, quiet thing,
those holiday bells ring
inside my head
You asked me why
I said I don't mind
the tearing wind
Can't stand the bright- lights
Waiting for a dark kind
so let's dig our elbows in

Oh, Betty Sue, your lips are red as wine
But it's the whiskey on your breath that waltzes me to bed
Oh, Betty, you're my Christmas Valentine

Oh, Betty, you're the only girl alive
who can twist with the garland,
turn with the wind,
who can shut out all those lights
The green and the red, oh, the radiant white
line every street.
We hid in the bar and then in your car
Oh, Betty, your shade is so sweet
Track Name: David Groves - Hark, The Angels
Hark, The Angels

All us children are fast asleep
Dreams above, mice beneath
We put our boots outside the door
Once again waiting for something more
A twinkling of time
A turning of keys
And Ol' Saint Nick left a bottle just for me

The cat told the mice to go
We take our drink, we take it slow
It's a Christmas of ash
This will never last
Benny's got his pills
We're burning up the bills
And Ol' Saint Nick left a bottle just for me

Can you hear those bells?
Hark the angels sing
Hear those bells ringing
