Christmas Must Be Something More

As some of you may know, I’ve been listening to Taylor Swift lately. Make fun of me if you want but the woman is a genius and has talent beyond belief. I was listening to her Christmas CD and the song “Christmas Must Be Something More” really hit home with me. I think we all tend to get caught up in the holiday and forget what it is really about; she helps to wake us up from this. Here are the lyrics:

What if ribbons and bows didn’t mean a thing
Would the song still survive without five golden rings
Would you still wanna kiss without mistletoe
What would happen if God never let it snow
What would happen if Christmas Carols told a lie
Tell me what you would find

You’d say that today holds something special
Something holy and not superficial
So here’s to the birthday boy who saved our lives
It’s something we all try to ignore
And put a wreath up on your door
So here’s something you should know that is for sure
Christmas must be something more

What if angels did not pay attention to
All the things that we wish they would always do
What if happiness came in a cardboard box
Then I’d think there was something we all forgot
What would happen if presents all went away
Tell me what would you find

You’d say that today holds something special
Something holy and not superficial
So here’s to the birthday boy who saved our lives
It’s something we all try to ignore
And put a wreath up on your door
So here’s something you should know that is for sure
Christmas must be something more

We get so caught up in all of it
Business and relationships
Hundred mile an hour lives
And it’s this time of year
And everybody’s here
It seems the last thing on your mind

You’d say that today holds something special
Something holy and not superficial
So here’s to Jesus Christ who saved our lives
It’s something we all try to ignore
And put a wreath up on your door
So here’s something you should know that is for sure
Christmas must be something
Christmas must be something
Christmas must be something more
There’s gotta be more
There’s gotta be more
