about

A man looks at postcards he has received over various Christmases from his wife who travels the world whilst he's alone, taking care of their children, at Christmas time.

lyrics

"It was a quiet day in New York City
And everything was looking pretty
Children running through the snow ..."

"It was a sunny day in Cincinnati
And everybody was looking happy
People smiling as never before ..."

"It was a stunning day in Lake Dakota
Everybody's son and daughter
Singing loud and clear ..."

Only here in London Town
I'm alone, creating sound,
Stifling a tear,

"It was a stunning day in Lake Dakota
Everybody's son and daughter
Full of festive cheer ..."

Only here in London Town
I'm alone, creating sound,
Wishing you're here.

CHORUS

Come home for Christmas, darling
Treasured one of mine
Come home for ham and turkey,
Presents and mince pie

The children're waiting, expectantly,
For your safe return
If just for Christmas, come home.
