Every Year, Every Christmas

I don`t know how love could do this to me
I`ve waited and waited for someone I`ve never seen
But I`m so sentimental, and I`m so hopeful you`ll be here
So, here I am every year, every Christmas. (Yes)

I`ve wished for you in my heart and in my head
And I got my answer that first moment that we met
And, oh yes, I believed you as you told me, as you said
You`d be here every year, every Christmas

There must be a lesson for me to learn
If you don`t trust in love, you`ll get nothing in return
Why should I be lonely, don`t tell me it`s fine
I have my pride, but I`d rather be with you tonight

So much emotion, it`s driving me mad (yeah)
But I`ll take my chances with these feelings that I have
And I`ll come back to this same corner where we met
And I`ll be here every year, every Christmas

Mere words can`t explain the pain and the fear
`Cause oh, I wonder, yes, I wonder are you gonna leave me standing here
Today`s almost over, but I don`t wanna leave
Has my heart made a fool out of me?

My friends gather round me with holiday cheer
They say to forget you, to let you go `cause you`re not here
Well, I can`t keep explaining what they`ll never understand
And why I`m here every year, every Christmas
I return every year, every Christmas
I come here every year, every Christmas
