its the news that no one hopes for,
every parents greatest fear,
finding out the child you love so much might not make it throught the year.

now the thought of spending christmas,
without him just feels wrong,
they've been praying for a miracle, now there prayin he can just hold on.

For one last christmas, one last time,
one last season when the world is right
one more telling of the story, one more verse of silent night,
they would give anything so he could have,
one last christmas.

middle of september,
still 70 degrees,
daddy climbs up in the attic, brings down candles, hangs the light up on the tree.

then the neighbors started asking,
and pretty soon word got around,
first it was the neighborhood, before to long they lit up that whole town.

For one last christmas, one last time,
one last season when the world is right
one more telling of the story, one more verse of silent night,
they would give anything so he could have,
one last christmas.

27th of october,
his time was wearin thin,
friends and family even strangers, that they didnt even know, brought presents in.

he was weak but he was smiling,
like there was nothing wrong,
they said he wouldnt make it, looks like he got to see it after all.

For one last christmas, one last time,
one last season when the world is right
one more telling of the story, one more verse of silent night,
they would give anything so he could have,
one last christmas.

one last christmas.
