It is Christmas soon, and I have never seen it so clear

It's Christmas Soon

Last night I left a note on Laura's desk

It said "I love you," signed "Anonymous Friend"

Turns out she's smarter than I thought she was

She knows I wrote it, and the whole class does too

And I'm all alone during couple's skate

When she skates by with some guy on her arm

But I knowI'll forget that look of pity on her face

When we're huddled together

'Cause it's gonna be Christmas soon, and I won't always be this way,

When the things that make be weak and strange

Get ho-ho-hoed away.

It's gonna be Christmas soon; I've never seen it quite so clear

And when my heat is breaking, I can close my eyes

It's already here

Maybe I'll call myself her Christmas Wish

Giving her present that will light up her face

I'll give her diamonds; I'll make dolphins speak

Working through daytime, spend midnight and weekends

Perfecting my rollers for couple's skate

Building up once graceful move at a time

I'l win her love and sow her what I'm worth

I just hope I can keep her from making we hurt

'Cause it's gonna be Christmas soon, and I won't always be this way

When the things that make me weak and strange

Get ho-ho-hoed away

It's gonna be Christmas soon; I've nee seen it quite so clear

And when my heart is breaking I can close my eyes

It's already...

Here at school they'll wonder

As I piece by piece better myself

And they won't kick me under

But I'll still feel so alone... until Laura calls me home

I'll see her standing by the fireplace

She'll look the same except for a twinkle in her eyes

She got it when I held her in my arms

I'll say 'I love you," she'll say"And you, too, Merry Christmas",

and she'll hand me a cookie plate

Smiling that smile only Laura can make

I'll take a bite and smile back wide

Because it's Christmas Eve and I know Laura is mine

'Cause it's gonna be Christmas soon, and I won't always be this way

Wen the things that make me weak and strange

Get ho-ho-hoed away

It's gonna be Christmas soon; I've never seen it quite so clear

And when my heart is breaking, can close my eyes

It's already here ...
