Different Kind of Christmas
by Mark Schultz

Album: Christmas

Snow is falling Christmas Eve
Lights are coming on up and down the street
The sound of carols fills the air
And people rushing home, families everywhere

Putting candles in the windows
Lights upon the tree
But there's no laughter in this house
Not like there used to be
There's just a million little memories
That remind me you're not here
It's just a different kind of Christmas this year

In the evening fires glow
Dancing underneath the mistletoe
A letter left from Santa Claus
Won't be the same this year in this house because

There's one less place set at the table
One less gift under the tree
And a brand new way to take their place inside of me
I'm unwrapping all these memories
Fighting back the tears
It's just a different kind of Christmas this year

There's voices in the driveway
Families right outside the door
And we'll try to make this Christmas like the ones we've had before
As we gather round the table, I see joy on every face
And I realize what's still alive is the legacy you made

It's time to put the candles in the windows, the lights upon the tree
It's time to fill this house with laughter like it used to be
Just because you're up in heaven, doesn't mean you're not near
It's just a different kind of Christmas
It's just a different kind of Christmas this year

Beautiful song! I lost my oldest brother in June and my father in law in October. It will be a different kind of Christmas this year for us, but we also trust they are heaven and yet near. - guest / Dec 23, 2020

This song means everything to us this year since losing my sister-in-law Brooke in May. Just doesn't seem like it's Christmas without her. - guest / Dec 14, 2017

Heard this last night on my home from work, so touching as I lost my wonderful Christian mother a few months ago., and getting ready for our first Christmas without her, her with us. - guest / Dec 2, 2016
