Hometown Christmas Lyrics – NEEDTOBREATHE, Switchfoot, and JUDAH

Verse 1: Bear Rinehart, Jon Foreman, and Judah Akers
Stoplights and the headlights
Are a festive red, green, and gold
Procrastinating shoppers
Caffinated against the cold
But there’s nothing you can buy me
It’s your hand I wanna hold

Pre-Chorus: Bear Rinehart
There’s miles between brothers
Years between friends
We’ll all be together again

Chorus: Bear Rinehart
‘Cause you’re not alone when
The porch lights are shining
It’s your invitation to the love that’s been waiting
Singin’, “Child why don’t you come on in”
It’s a hometown Christmas

Verse 2: Bear Rinehart, Jon Foreman, and Judah Akers
The lights are on the houses
And the trees are brought inside
The parking spot at the local mall
Is the hardest thing to find
Yeah, but I’m pretty sure that the Christmas star
Was in my daughter’s eyes last night

Pre-Chorus: Jon Foreman
Yeah ’cause there’s miles between us
Years between friends
But we’ll all be together again

Chorus: Jon Foreman
‘Cause you’re not alone when
Those porch lights are shining
It’s your invitation to the love that’s been waiting
One thing on my wishlist
It’s a hometown Christmas, yeah

Bridge: All
Hark! the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn king
Hometown Christmas
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconcile
Hometown Christmas

Verse 3: Bear Rinehart, Jon Foreman, and Judah Akers
Grandma’s singing Christmas songs
That none of us have ever heard
Us cousins we’d be playing up
Till dinner was served
But the feeling that comes back to me
Is hard to put into words

Pre-Chorus: Judah Akers
‘Cause there’s miles between lovers
Years between friends
But we’ll all be together again

Chorus: Judah Akers
‘Cause you’re not alone when (‘lone when)
The porch lights are shining (shining)
It’s your invitation to a love that’s been waiting
So child come on in

Chorus: Bear Rinehart
We’re not alone when
The porch lights are shining
It’s your invitation to a love that’s been waiting
Singin’, “Child won’t you come on in”
It’s a hometown Christmas
It’s a hometown Christmas

Outro: Jon Foreman and Judah Akers
Hark! the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn king
