Sufjan Stevens - Christmas In The Room Lyrics




No travel plans, no shopping malls
No candy canes, no Santa Claus
For as the day of rest draws near
It's just the two of us this year

No silver bells or mistletoe
We'll kiss and watch our TV shows

I'll come to you, I'll sing to you
Like it's Christmas in the room
I'll dance with you, I'll laugh with you
'Til it's Christmas in the room

No traffic jams, no ice and storm
Far in the house the fire is warm
No Christmas tree, no great parade
It's just an ordinary day

No parties planned, no place to go
It's just the two of us alone
And in the house we see a light
That comes from what we feel inside

I'll come to you, I'll sing to you
Like it's Christmas in the room
I'll dance with you, I'll laugh with you
'Til it's Christmas in the room
'Til it's Christmas in the room

Oh, I can see the day when we'll die
But I don't care to think of silence
For now I hear you laughing
The greatest joy is like the sunrise

No gifts to give, they're all right here
Inside our hearts, the glorious cheer
And in the house we see a light
That comes from what we know inside

I'll come to you, I'll sing to you
Like it's Christmas in the room
I'll dance with you, I'll laugh with you
'Til it's Christmas in the room

I'll come to you, I'll sing to you
Like it's Christmas in the room
I'll dance with you, I'll laugh with you
Like it's Christmas in the room
Like it's Christmas in the room

Sufjan Stevens Christmas In The Room Comments
  1. Avalon Bruno

    When my mom told me that we wouldn't be going to my grandma's for christmas and would be having it at our aunt's instead, I thought of this song. I'll still be with my whole family, but it won't feel the same. This song paints such a beautiful, cathartic picture of christmas between two people who love each other and don't have much to share aside from that love. I'm in college now, and I have a feeling that this song will be taking on even more meaning for me in the coming years.

    No travel bags, no shopping malls
    No candy canes, no Santa Claus
    For as the day of rest draws near
    It's just the two of us this year

    No silver bells or mistletoe
    We'll kiss and watch our TV show

    I'll come to you, I'll sing to you
    Like it's Christmas in the room
    I'll dance with you, I'll laugh with you
    'Til it's Christmas in the room

    No traffic jams, no ice and storm
    Far in the house the fire is warm
    No Christmas tree, no great parade
    It's just an ordinary day

    No parties planned, no place to go
    It's just the two of us alone
    And in the house we see a light
    That comes what we feel inside

    I'll come to you, I'll sing to you
    Like it's Christmas in the room
    I'll dance with you, I'll laugh with you
    'Til it's Christmas in the room
    'Til it's Christmas in the room

    Oh, I can't see the day when we'll die
    But I don't care to think of silence
    For now I hear you laughing
    The greatest joy is like the sunrise

    No gifts to give, they're all right here
    Inside our hearts, the glorious cheer
    And in the house we seek a light
    That comes from what we know inside

    I'll come to you, I'll sing to you
    Like it's Christmas in the room
    I'll dance with you, I'll laugh with you
    'Til it's Christmas in the room

    I'll come to you, I'll sing to you
    Like it's Christmas in the room
    I'll dance with you, I'll laugh with you
    Like it's Christmas in the room
    Like it's Christmas in the room

  16. UNCtarheelvids

    someone with the username "Eldudebrother" uploaded it a while back

  17. Shidofied

    I find it helpful in pointing me back to the spirit of Christ's advent. God's love given to us. It is difficult to capture that understanding in the face of commercialism and culture.

  18. jlm08e

    Could anyone upload a video of the older version of this song? Like it slightly more and can't find it anywhere.

  25. Remco Dalmaijer

    This song reminds me of those first Christmases with my love; family hundreds of miles a way; kids a few years away. Where it's just the two of you, trying to create a Christmas spirit and not enough money for the societal Christmas buy-ins. It brings me back to my mids 20s more than anything I've ever experienced....

  26. Jukethat3

    how do i upload the other version of this without youtube taking it off immediately??

  27. Ben Ayers

    I included a link in the description for you.

  28. barry warner

    This may even be my favourite sufjan song of all time. It paints a picture of Christmas that I had never dreamed of.Its almost the exact opposite of what I hope for and want. Perhaps only sufjan could come up with this. achingly beautiful and sad although the singer has what he wants. I never cease to be amazed and moved by Sufjan

  29. Martin Robb

    Beautiful. Can't get unnaddicted to this song.
