In Flames:

The tinsel's been hung

The trees have been lit

I stand here and

Hope, it'll all go down

In flames

The presents are wrapped

The lights are strung

Everyone stands smiling

I stand here and

Hope, it'll all go down

In flames

The kids are all giddy

The houses are all so snug

The family is coming over

I stand here and

Hope, it'll all go down

In flames

The children are greedy

Every one so needy

Grabbing, touching

Hoping and praying

I stand here and

Hope, it'll all go down

In flames

The stockings hang by the fire

Warmth echoes throughout

Snow is falling all around

But…

I stand here and

Hope, it'll all go down

In flames
