lyrics

mistletoe is hanging
from rafters by the door
we find each other below
on the dance hall floor
outside snow is falling
fields are turning white
I look into your eyes
searching for what’s right

but I’m afraid to kiss you
under that mistletoe
I’m afraid that I’d never
again let you go
I’m afraid of feeling
what my heart already knows
I’m afraid I’d believe
that our love might still grow

though I see you talking
I can’t hear what you say
thoughts are racing fast
should I stay or walk away
your smile grabs my heart
with a force I can’t control
is mistletoe poisonous
I don’t want to know...

but I’m afraid to kiss you
under that mistletoe
I’m afraid that I’d never
again let you go
I’m afraid of feeling
what my heart already knows
I’m afraid I’d believe
that our love might still grow

minutes move like hours
hours that bring back years
of when we were lovers
and Christmas goodbye tears
I smile at you fondly
hold you in a warm embrace
then walk away quickly
before tears fall down my face

but I’m afraid to kiss you
under that mistletoe
I’m afraid that I’d never
again let you go
I’m afraid of feeling
what my heart already knows
I’m afraid I’d believe
that our love might still grow

I’m afraid I’d believe
that our love might still grow
