I feel the calling
Deep inside my heart
It's time to go back home,
Home for the holidays
Where true love is known.

Please keep the lights all burning brightly
And the door a little ajar,
So a sweet aroma of Christmas pudding
Will draw me from afar.

Turn down my quilt just like always
And re-fill the cookie tin,
Let Rusty off the chain
No matter where I've been-
I'll be running on home for Christmas
No matter what I've seen,
For that's where my heart belongs-
Oh, don't go looking for me elsewhere
Home is where I've gone.

I want to be with family now
To wander there, where all of me begun
And watch the happenings,
From all I've seen and done-
I'd like to get all sentimental,
And climb up my cubby tree
Just to see what I can see
Then I'll find the juicy berries
That were always there for me.

Then as I reminisce
And pause upon the stair
I'll hear the laughter-
All the singing we have done,
I want to turn back the clock now
To those days of simple fun-
Time has swept away those precious years
But, I will revel in my treasured dreams
And delight in fond memories-
At home for the holidays
So warm with you
Is where my heart will ever stay.

One night, as old Peter slept
He left the door of heaven ajar
When through a little angel crept
And came down with a falling star
