Lyrics:

Holiday
Celebrate
Holiday
Celebrate

If we took a holiday
Took some time to celebrate
Just one day out of life
It would be, it would be so nice

Everybody spread the word
We’re gonna have a celebration
All across the world
In every nation

It’s time for the good times
Forget about the bad times, oh yeah
One day to come together to release the pressure
We need a holiday

If we took a holiday
Took some time to celebrate
(Come on, let’s celebrate)
Just one day out of life
(Holiday)
It would be, it would be so nice

If we took a holiday
(Oo yeah, oo yeah)
Took some time to celebrate
(Come on, let’s celebrate)
Just one day out of life
(Just one day out of life)
It would be, it would be so nice

You can turn this world around
And bring back all of those happy days
Put your troubles down
It’s time to celebrate

Let love shine
And we will find
A way to come together
Can make things better
We need a holiday

If we took a holiday
(Holiday)
Took some time to celebrate
(Come on let’s celebrate)
Just one day out of life
(Just one day out of life)
It would be, it would be so nice

Oo yeah, oo yeah
Come on, lets celebrate
We have got to get together

Holiday

If we took a holiday

Just one day out of life

Lyrics:

You only see what your eyes want to see

How can life be what you want it to be

You’re frozen

When your heart’s not open

You’re so consumed with how much you get

You waste your time with hate and regret

You’re broken

When your heart’s not open

Mmm, if I could melt your heart

Mmm, we’d never be apart

Mmm, give yourself to me

Mmm, you hold the key

Now there’s no point in placing the blame

And you should know I suffer the same

If I lose you

My heart will be broken

Love is a bird, she needs to fly

Let all the hurt inside of you die

You’re frozen

When your heart’s not open

Mmm, if I could melt your heart

Mmm, we’d never be apart

Mmm, give yourself to me

Mmm, you hold the key

You only see what your eyes want to see

How can life be what you want it to be

You’re frozen

When your heart’s not open

Mmm, if I could melt your heart

Mmm, we’d never be apart

Mmm, give yourself to me

Mmm, you hold the key

If I could melt your heart
