DIDO lyrics : "Christmas Day"

The young gentleman came riding past
on a snow-blue winter's day
He asked to drink by our fire and

I was pleased to let him stay
He drank there quietly for a while
and then he turned and said to me


Your eyes are green
Like summer grass

Your lips are red
like a fresh-cut rose
Your hair is soft

like an Irish stream
And your voice is filled with sweet beauty


And the last words I heard him say were
I shall return for you my love on Christmas Day


And the night will come but I won't sleep
as I watch the stars that lead him
I cannot place where he is

but still my heart goes with him
I'm saving all my Sunday clothes for the day
that I'll be leaving

Father knows
My sister knows


And my friends
They're happy for me
And the priest he says

you should thank God
for the blessing of such beauty


And the last words I heard him say were
I shall return for you my love on Christmas Day
I shall return for you my love on Christmas Day


On Christmas Day
I shall return for you

My love...

And the last words I heard him say

Were the last words I ever heard him say

I shall return for you my love on Christmas Day

I said I will return on Christmas Day
And yes, I shall return on Christmas day
I shall return, for you, on Christmas Day

My love
I will return on Christmas Day
I shall return ,my love, on Christmas Day

On Christmas Day
