Track Name: Snow Falls in San Francisco
and snow falls
wherever you go
and you bring
the winter where you go
and you bring
the winter to san francisco

white in the city lights
you walked away, and i was
blind in the christmas lights
did you ever, girl, ever really
fall, ever really fall
fall for me at all
did you love me back
yeah i think so
Track Name: Like a Sunburn
i fell, like a shirt down a laundry chute
for you, would you wear me till i get
old and worn

anything i want
you can have when i'm around babe
everything you've got
yes its yours

boy do you love me like you should
do i love you like i should?
with all the bad and good

you felt, like a sunburn when we touched
that day, when the clouds parted slightly
under grey
Track Name: All Holidays
i don't want a white holiday
or a cold, dark winter song
I want warmth, light, christmas cheer
you're the only one who brings it along

will you come back to this town
you will bring the golden hour round
yeah the rain stopped coming down
because of you but i don't know how

oh that golden california sun
you bring christmas girl to everyone

and your smile breaks with the dawn
as we drive out to the beach
we can make love all day long
to the heavens girl we will reach

let me give you my love all holidays
there's a promise that won't go away
i will never give up on you
if you never give up on me
we can make a pretty good team
don't you say

i will love you girl everyday
let me love you girl everyway
Track Name: Christmas in LA
summer rays melting through
the winter tunes
oh the sun always shines gold out here
any time of year

but its cold
cold without my baby round
oh yeah its cold
'cause i'm lonesome now

i'm never gonna feel the holiday cheer
without my babe
its christmas in LA

girls in shades
walking through the avenues
but i dont even see
all those girls when i think of you
