General Comment I've never heard this song before, but it seems sad.
This man came and filled her head with dreams and he told her he would come back for her and he never did. The whole town was excited about his return for her and he just never came back. This reminds me of a short story I read once, but I don't remember what it was called.
General Comment I have a soft spot for this song - such a great Christmas song and she has a beautiful voice. General Comment I absolutely love this song at Christmas time. It is quite sad though. Did the guy die or just never return?
General Comment I don't think the Christmas has happend yet in this song.
The verse "Father knows, My sister knows, And my friends, They're happy for me" is in present tense, I think she's still expecting him to come back at Christmas. The line "last words I ever heard him On this christmas day lyrics still makes sence from this perspective; they were she last words she ever heard from him I think although part of it IS sang as IF it's in the present tense, that is the girl stating how she felt at that time when it WAS the present.
Why do I think it's in the past, and that he never came back? I might be wrong, but in any case - it's damn clever song-writing to make us debate it, eh!
Scabadus I agree that the key is that "Father knows, My sister knows, etc. And to comment on a couple of the "what a sad song" interpretations of some commentators, I'd say: Room is left for the reader to wonder. The interpretation that what the singer says actually occurred, that Christmas has not arrived yet, On this christmas day lyrics that everyone believes what she believes, is the likely intention, it's the most poetic, and it's the interpretation that I like best.
It is still not necessarily sad, though, but wonderful, if the singer believes it will come true this Christmas-- as if Christmas had never arrived yet-- despite the fact that many Christmases have come and gone. Now, her belief the visitor will return this Christmas and On this christmas day lyrics her father, sister, and friends are happy for her becomes more poignant, and least to further meanings.
Flag jock on November 29, General Comment Did no one else wonder if this was a reference to Jesus? Flag alvinski on December 14, My Interpretation While I am not a christian personally, I believe that this song is meant to be about peoples acceptance and of Jesus, and they are waiting for the rapture to be taken back.
That or I'm thinking too much about the lyrics and it's just a beautifully sad song about love. Got to love being a philosophy major!!! Log in now to add this track to your mixtape!
