Lyrics

Da da da da da da
Da da da da da da
Where we met on Christmas Eve

She's an aristo, I'm working class
And I've treated her real bad
I never got to apologise
About the man who made you sad

I knew I said a lot because I was wired
When you're young you're a machine
We were drinking with the Idlewild
In the days of speed, and we met on Christmas Eve

We drank into the morning light
Like we were never going home
And we sang a song a million sing
Just like we scored a goal

I must have made promises I couldn't keep
But if you trust a fool then a fool you will be
But I looked into your eyes and sold you a dream
Then we fled the scene, where we met on Christmas Eve

And then I moved into her big old house
I'd never been to St. John's Wood
There were movie stars and media types
We were all up to no good

And we all said a lot because we were wired
What a twisted web we weave
We were living with the Idlewild
In the days of speed, and we met on Christmas Eve

We drank into the morning light
Like we were never going home
And we sang a song a million sing
Just like we scored a goal

I must have made promises I couldn't keep
But if you trust a fool then a fool you will be
But I looked into your eyes and sold you a dream
Then we fled the scene, where we met on Christmas Eve

I know who you're with and I know where you are
I know you found love and you deserved it
I was just a kid, but I know what I did
I ask for forgiveness if I'm worth it

We drank into the morning light
Like we were never going home
And we sang a song a million sing
Just like we scored a goal

I must have made promises I couldn't keep
But if you trust a fool then a fool you will be
But I looked into your eyes and sold you a dream
Then we fled the scene, where we met on Christmas Eve

Da da da da da da
Da da da da da da
Where we met on Christmas Eve

Da da da da da da
Da da da da da da
Where we met on Christmas Eve
