Church bells ring and choirs sing,
It's Christmas time again,
The time of year to bring good cheer,
To warm the hearts of men;
Christmas lights and moonlit nights,
They light up city homes,
But Christmas lights won't be the same,
When you're far away from home.

No, Christmas lights don't seem the same,
When you're far away from home,
The ones so dear are gone this year,
And so you're here all alone;
The lights will shine at Christmas time,
No matter where you roam,
But Christmas lights are not the same,
When you're far away from home.

In memory I go back again,
To a Christmas long ago,
In midnight mass on Christmas Eve,
I see the candles glow;
A little chapel dimly lit,
I still can see today,
On a tiny little island dear
In Bonavista Bay.

My childhood dreams passed all too soon,
As children leave their homes,
A boy or girl may roam this world,
And seldom feel alone;
But when they see those Christmas lights,
Their thoughts will turn to home,
But Christmas lights are not the same,
When you're far away from home.

No, Christmas lights don't seem the same,
When you're far away from home,
The ones so dear are gone this year,
And so you're here all alone;
The lights will shine at Christmas time,
No matter where you roam,
But Christmas lights are not the same,
When you're far away from home.

No, Christmas lights won't seem the same,
When you're far away from home.
