lyrics

(verse 1)
The gifts are wrapped, And we’re packing up the car,
There’s excitement floating in the air.
The sky’s are clear, With just a hint of snowfall,
And the kids can’t wait until we’re there.

We’ve taken this road so many times before,
Everyone singing carols to the radio.
The city lights slowly fade out and the hills appear,
As we leave the highway behind and take the backroads…

(chorus)
We’re travelin’ home on another Christmas Eve.
We’re travelin’ home on another Christmas Eve.

(verse 2)
We’re almost there, familiar landmarks are flying by,
As snow begins to fall in the winter light.

And when we pull up the drive, the house will be all aglow.
‘cause they’ll be waiting up late for us tonight.

Another year gone by away from family and dear friends,
Everyone will gather around the tree.
This is our chance to reminisce and realize,
these are the folks who fill our memories…
