Lyrics

Old dreams long forgotten for the family to see

Like so much silver tinsel strewn about the tree

Gifts are piled in a ring underneath the branches

Here’s to new beginnings and all those lost chances

 

The old dog don’t run no more and he’s just lying there

The cat’s on his blanket all he does is stare

The kids are nearly grown they’ve got their whole lives

Here’s to this happy home well most of the time

 

Here’s to the ones we love and the ones who ain’t around

To mercy for the sinners who were lost but now are found

Cheers to the ones who are here and the ones that we let go

Sing a song that meant something to you once long ago

 

You say a prayer if you believe and then you say amen

I miss so many people that I’ll never see again

Some moved on and some have passed some live upon the wind

Here’s to making it last and taking it on the chin

 

There’s snow out on the meadow the sky’s a’turning dark

And all the people that surround me here I love with all my heart

So open up those presents now quick as quick can be

Here’s to the here and now to friends and family

 

Here’s to the ones we love and the ones who ain’t around

To mercy for the sinners who were lost but now are found

Cheers to the ones who are here and the ones that we let go

Sing a song that meant something to you once long ago

 

Sing a song that meant something to you once long ago
