Track Name: Believe (In What Sounds Beautiful)
My brother laughs at his father's joke
My sister's hair is wet with snow
We never cared for Christian things
Pack in the car and eat Chinese
And I have chosen to believe
In what sounds beautiful to me
A wondrous light glows warm around me
Is it Christmas or is it family?
Track Name: I Don't Remember (Christmas Eve)
I tried the eggnog
I tried a lot of it
I tried the whole damn thing
I tried the Baileys
It seems to suit me
So please tell your dad I don't know what happened to his Baileys.

And if I don't remember what I said to you last night
It's just the Christmas Spirit striking me down dumb and blind
And if I acted silly on Christmas Eve, please forgive me,
we're still a family.

I'm fine, just tired
And I taste metal and light is the devil.
Hey family! Please don't hate me!
No goddammit I don't know what happened to your Baileys.

And if I don't remember what I said to you last night
It's just the Christmas Spirit striking me down dumb and blind
And if I acted silly on Christmas Eve, please forgive me,
we're a family.
Track Name: In A Diner
You're drinking tea out of a porcelain cup
You ask your waitress where she was brought up
You've never heard a voice like that one
Her laugh reminds you of someone
Who showed you to believe
In what you cannot see
You loved her for an hour or two
In a diner on Christmas Eve

I know it snows in other cities
But our parking lots are slick with rain
Inside it smells like toast and coffee
And I feel hopeful for a change
And I want to believe
In what I cannot see
And love you for an hour or two
In a diner on Christmas Eve

You're doing crosswords from the paper
You haven't finished one in years
I put a quarter in the jukebox
And ask you what you want to hear
And you want to believe
In what you cannot see
Please love me for an hour or two
In a diner on Christmas Eve.
