...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...

Track Name: Going Home Again (Christmas Eve)
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
