Lately I've been shaded in
The shadow of a happy man
With golden hair and twinkling eyes in bloom

It's there every time I close my eyes
The lights of the happy life
A smiling girl and a beautiful wife

Now it has begun, the battle of gods for angels
To make her happy
But Im alone and she's wondering where's her daddy

Sarah you know Im still your daddy
Though you dont know what's going on
All these things in my dusty room
The rope swing that I made for you

You can not know how I am lonely
So close to christmas and all
And the gifts under the christmas tree
They aren't from santa they're from me

Both hands were touched by hands
The handshake of a happy clan
And Sarahs eyes reflected blue on blue on blue

The lights of the happy life
Appear to fade in your fading sighs
The leaving car the dim of argument subsides

Now it rages on, the people once sworn as lovers
tear each other, and sarah cries in suspended slumber

(repeat CH)

I know that someday you'll be with me
As the car fades from view
But Santa's coming down the shoe
I wish that he was bringing you
It's not enough to just dream of us
And these pictures of you turn to dust
