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

Only her

Their love ran deep

He longed for her touch

In this Christmas thought of her

But time,

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.
