Receive your letters every day,
always helps to pass the time away.
December for a soldier’s heavy heart. 

So many wonder as you try to say,
‘How do you make it through the holiday?’.
I’ll tell you from a soldier’s point of view.

We see the Christmas Star but from afar,
hear the jingle bells just not as well.
Always pray for Silent Nights, cause we see different Christmas lights.
We’ll say a Christmas prayer wish we were there,
hang the mistletoe, but miss you so.
Hope to God we’re not here long, this is A Soldier’s Christmas Song.

Our job is harder at this time of year,
the Christmas Spirit wraps around our fear,
but there’s a knowing that we stand for something more.

We see the Christmas Star but from afar,
hear the jingle bells just not as well.
Always pray for Silent Nights, cause we see different Christmas lights.
We’ll say a Christmas prayer wish we were there,
hang the mistletoe, but miss you so.
Hope to God we’re not here long, this is A Soldier’s Christmas Song.

Our simple manger scene,
is caught between all that we saw from Shock and Awe.
Our plastic baby Jesus cries for us.
And from our eagle’s wings, we find Three Kings.
An Angel’s hand our desert land,
we thank you for the love you send our way.

We see the Christmas Star but from afar,
hear the jingle bells just not as well.
Always pray for Silent Nights, cause we see different Christmas lights.
We’ll say a Christmas prayer wish we were there,
hang the mistletoe, but miss you so.
Hope to God we’re not here long, this is A Soldier’s Christmas Song.
And hope to God we’re not here long, this is A Soldier’s Christmas Song.
