Going Home (On Christmas Eve) Going home again on Christmas Eve (we’re never gonna let go) Binging on Hughes holiday movies (we’re never gonna let go) Christmas ale with friends til 2 or 3 (we’re never gonna let go) O St. Nick is rad in your twenties (we’re never gonna let go) We’re all packed up The car just hit the road And the city’s fading back We’re all going home The ghosts of Christmas past burn up our lungs Our folks, the tree, the stockings are all hung Come o love and joy to anyone alone We’re going to the hometown bar sweet revelry Laughing with our old acquaintances, the dreams Some of us achieved and some went down No one could believe how Joe got out Reawaking the best in us is what its all about Ring the bells for all who’ve fell We don’t wanna wake up now A wonderful life just look at the crowds O baby don’t ya hear that sound It's everyone else who may be down and out



...a remake to the 2011 classic. A song that will have you humming and caroling through the snowy streets. A song that will light your tree and warm your hearts. A song that will fill you full of Christmas Cheer, and at the same time gives back to those in need...
