Lyrics: I remember you
Sitting by the fireside
With nothing to do
But cozy up and sing along

So when did Christmastime seem to change
I’d like everything to be the same
As it was

Do you remember when the world was green
And not so mean? Not so obscene
I’d like to go there if just for a day
If I could find a way

Nothing can be as it used to be
It sure don’t feel like Christmas anymore

It’s Christmastime again
Another year, with all my friends
And all the family too
So why do I still feel blue?

And when did Christmastime seem to change
I'd like everything to be the same
As it was

The little drum kit that my uncle gave me
As I banged away and drove my father crazy
I’d like to play them if just for a day
If I could find a way

Nothing can be as it used to be
It sure don’t feel like Christmas anymore

I know a man who specializes in time travel
He sells some plans for a device that I saw in the back of a Boy’s Life
Soon as I get some cash I’m gonna buy these plans and go build myself a time machine
Then I'll go back in time see the family, how it was and that'll fix everything

So I walked through the door
Christmas day in ’84
We all looked so young
Playing games, having fun

But the old me did not feel that same old way
Nothing like that young boy on Christmas day (in ‘84)

I stood around and I thought for a while
As my mother sang, and my sister smiled
The world will never really ever change
But I can’t say the same

Nothing can be as it used to be
It sure don’t feel like Christmas anymore
