Christmas thoughts of her
Blue Christmas By Elvis Presley
She was ever on his mind
Anticipation ran deep
She was ever on his mind
His heart was racing
He could not sleep
Christmas thoughts of seeing her
They would meet, bare feet in the sand
Waves crashing on their toes
A stroll along the beach
They would walk, they would talk
Hand in hand
The salty mist upon their faces
The hint of sea spray in her hair
The fragrance of her mesmerizing perfume
It seemed so real
These Christmas thoughts of seeing her
They planned, they agreed
This wasn’t just a thought
Not even a dream
The day was approaching
She spoke of gifts for him
Yet his Christmas thought was her
Their love ran deep
He longed for her touch
In this Christmas thought of her
The cruel mistress, time
Takes her toll
His spirit so very willing
But his body far too weak
No, Dear Lord please no
This was not his Christmas thought of her
The body recovers
Days pass, their plan seems gone
The body recovers as the spirit leads
More than Christmas thoughts of her
A new day, a simple plan
But now she is here, really here
Seeing her will satisfy his need
For now, he knows he is her man
Their time together
Short, good, so sweet
Her beauty is effervescent
Her fragrance beyond words
Their time far too short
The day too windy, too cold for the beach
But arms and lips,
Both still reach
In splendor of Christmas Red
Her beauty glistens even in the wind
They part, both to family
And yet alone, both so alone
Surely they will soon again meet
But for now
He has Christmas thoughts of her.
