A COLD NIGHT IN DECEMBER

EVERYONE IS ON THE TOWN

HE STOPS IN TO WARM UP

AND CALM HIS SOUL DOWN

THE RADIO IS PLAYING

HOLIDAY SONGS

WITH EACH AND EVERY ONE

SOMEBODY SINGS ALONG

 

HE HEARS THE DJ SAYIN

I’M PLAYIN EVERGREENS

HOLIDAY FAVORITES

GUARANTEED TO PLEASE

EVERY TUNE HE HEARS

TAKES HIM BACK IN TIME

HE WANTS TO SING ALONG

WITH EVERY SINGLE LINE

 

DJ SPIN THOSE TUNES AGAIN

YOU CALL THEM EVERGREENS

VINTAGE SONGS THAT WARM OUR HEARTS

AND MAKE US WANT TO SING

 

HE TAKES A CHAIR BESIDE ME

OFFERS UP A TOAST

TO THE PEOPLE HE HAS KNOWN

AND WHO HE’S MISSED THE MOST

EACH COMES WITH A STORY

HEAR HIS PASSION RISE

HE TELLS ME OF THE FOLKS

WHO’VE COME INTO HIS LIFE

EVERY SONG REMINDS HIM

OF ONE MORE OLD FRIEND

WHO’S COME INTO HIS LIFE

AND GONE BACK OUT AGAIN

SOME ARE THERE FOREVER

BENDING LIKE THE TREES

HANGING ON IN WINTER

HE CALLS EM EVERGREENS

 

SOMETHING IN THE AIR TONIGHT

MAKES HIM WANT TO SAY

PEOPLE WE HAVE KNOWN BEFORE

ARE IN OUR HEARTS TO STAY

 

EVER ARE THE MEMORIES

IN SONGS ABOUT HIS LIFE

LOVE HAS MOVED ON

LOVE HAS SURVIVED

ITS LATE AS HE WALKS OUT

THERE’S NO ONE ON THE STREET

THE ONLY SIGN OF LIFE

ARE THOSE SAME OLD EVERGREENS

 

MISTER TELL YOUR TALES AGAIN

OF ALL THOSE EVERGREENS

VINTAGE LOVE THAT TOUCHED YOUR HEART

AND MADE YOU WANT TO SING

EVERGREENS EVERGREENS EVERGREENS
