    One Last Christmas

    Matthew West

    from the album The Heart of Christmas

    It's the news that no one hopes for,
    Every parent's greatest fear
    Finding out the child you love so much
    Might not make it through the year
    Now the thought of spending Christmas
    Without him just feels wrong
    They've been praying for a miracle,
    Now they're praying he can just hold on

    (chorus)
    For one last Christmas one last time
    One last season when the world is right
    One more telling of the story
    One more verse of Silent Night
    They'd give anything so he could have
    One last Christmas

    Middle of September
    Still seventy degrees
    Daddy climbs up in the attic
    Brings down candles
    Hangs the lights on all the trees
    Then the neighbors started asking
    And pretty soon word got around
    First it was the neighborhood,
    Before too long they lit up that whole town

    Chorus

    Twenty-seventh of October,
    His time was wearing thin
    Friends and family, even strangers
    That they didn't know brought presents in
    He was weak but he was smiling
    Like there was nothing even wrong
    They said he wouldn't make it,
    Looks like he got to see it after all

    Chorus
