LyricsEdit

Always winter but never christmas

You won't open your box or kiss under this

How can I let you know?


Always easter but never egg giving

Crucify me, I just don't call this living

How can I let you know?


Can't you hear the bells ringing out?

Can't you hear the fishmongers shout?

That the way to live is celebrate and give

Stop it being, always winter but never christmas


Always ageing but never birthday

Told your last joke and threw your mirth away

Oh how can I let you know?

Always turkey time, never thanksgiving

Share some gold out, but don't just sit there sieving


How can I let you know?


Can't you read the words upon the wall?

Can't you hear the butcher boy's call?

That we need to share, love between each pair

Stop it being, always winter but never christmas


I'd unwrap you if you'd only step down from your tree

From your present into some undone future with me


Always winter but never christmas

Always thatmas but never thismas

Oh how can I let you know?


Can't you hear the bells ringing out?

Can't you hear the fishmongers shout?

That the way to live is celebrate and give

That we need to share, love between each pair

Warm it up

Always winter but never christmas
