​Why Can't You Be Here For Christmas

This song is by Vince Vance & The Valiants.

By the chimney are two stockings
One for you and one for me
But I'm waiting, anticipating
Decorating the tree

Pretty ribbons, shiny paper
Should I wrap these gifts alone?
'Cause you told me very boldly
That you won't be home

Why can't you be here for Christmas?
Why can't you be here with me?
With tears in my eyes I ask, has our love died?
Why can't you be here for Christmas?

On the sidewalk boys and girls walk
Arm in arm but you're not here
Is my lover with another
For Christmas this year?

I'm so lonely for your holding
Underneath the mistletoe
How my heart aches
Oh, dear God make my baby come home

Why can't you be here for Christmas?
Why can't you be here with me?
With tears in my eyes I ask, has our love died?
Why can't you be here for Christmas?

Why can't you be here for Christmas?
Why can't you be here for Christmas?
