  • 04:27 Story Lyrics
    It's Christmas, Sweetheart

    In dreams I weep to wake from

    Because I'm bound to you

    Oh, thank god for the day

    I was ever found by you

    The snow was falling

    And so did I

    So sweet and kind and true

    It made me cry

    To ever have to say goodbye

    It's Christmas, Sweetheart

    I can feel your footstep on the stair

    Smell your ginger sweetness in the air

    And I know you're everywhere

    It's Christmas, Sweetheart

    I can feel your footstep on the stair

    All I want is just for you

    To take me with you there

    In dreams I weep to wake from

    Because I'm bound to you

    Oh, thank god for the day I was ever found by you

    So I'll remember, darling

    What you said

    About a life of love, so better led

    It's Christmas, Sweetheart

    (Spoken) Michael: Happy Christmas, Summer.

    (Spoken) Summer: I can't wait til you're here!

NOTES
Hailed as "eclectic, steadfast and powerful" (PopMatters) and "taut, urgent and altogether haunting" (Ground Control) NYC's Bipolar Explorer bring their emotive, moody indie-rock dreampop vibe to this new collection of Christmas songs. Featuring one original holiday composition and new arrangements of four traditional carols, recorded, according to the band, "live, noisily and in a hurry" at their studio in Hell's Kitchen. Ground Control called this record "Brilliant - ranging from moody shoegaze to jangly dreampop with a sturdy bit of the ruins of CBGB’s undergirding the lot..."
