Christmas Eve Can Kill You lyrics:

The winter's flaking snow
Is brushing through the pine wood trees
I stuck my hands down deep inside my coat
I think of years ago
And half remembered Christmas trees
And faces that still warm me with their glow.

The cold and empty evening
Hangs around me like a ghost
I listen to my footsteps in the snow
The sound of one man walkin' through the snow
Can break your heart
But stopping doesn't help, so on I'll go.

And Christmas eve can kill you
When you're trying to hitch a ride to anywhere.

The icy air I'm breathin'
Is all that keeps me on my feet
I feel like I've been walking all my life
A car goes running by
The man don't even turn his head
Guess he's busy being Santa Claus tonight.

The saddest part of all
Is knowing if I switched with him
I'd leave him stumblin' ragged by the road
I'd ride that highway to the arms of my sweet family
And forget about the stranger in the cold.

And Christmas eve can kill you
When you're trying to hitch a ride to anywhere.

And as I walk I'm singin' to myself
Oh silent night
Hoping I can save those other souls
Oh, God forgive the man
Who drives right by the other man
Have pity on the stranger in the cold.

'Cause Christmas Eve can kill you
When you're trying to hitch a ride to anywhere.
