One More Silent Night

about

A bittersweet country Christmas carol

lyrics

Nashville’s sunny like she just forgave ya
But this year’s road leads to Pennsylvania
And I hear December’s running cold

Driving up northbound Eighty-One
Radio playing out the setting sun says
“There’s no place like home for the holidays”
Swears there's "No place like home for the holidays"

Nothing really changed but it ain’t the same
Lost a couple shingles and a maiden name
and this year you’ll make Grandma’s pumpkin pie
Front yard’s a glowing little Bethlehem
Sisters keep on shepherding the kids to bed
And local news says everything’s all right
we all pray for just one more silent night

Suitcase open on the twin size bed
Where the sugar plum fairies used to dance in your head
and it seems so simple now it hurts

Candles burning and the table's set
You get this strange feeling like you never really left
And it tastes sweet and sad at the same time
So sweet and sad at the same time

Nothing really changed but it ain’t the same
Lost a couple shingles and a maiden name
and this year you’ll make Grandma’s pumpkin pie
Front yard’s a glowing little Bethlehem
Sisters keep on shepherding the kids to bed
And local news says everything’s all right
we all pray for just one more silent night

Everybody's talking with the TV on
When you step outside they don't know you've gone
Snow comes down and you feel so small
Just close your eyes and hear it fall
Close your eyes and hear it...

Silent Night, Holy Night
All is calm, all is bright
Round young virgin mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace
