Lyrics

Little Mix:
You're the one I've been missing
To the one I've been missing

Jade:
I'm sorry I ain't been around
But you've been on my mind a million times
I'll make it up to you now
We'll wrap the presents and put up the tree together
Be together
Baby there's no better gift
And now that I have you here
That's when I feel it the most

Leigh-Anne (Little Mix):
Cause I've been gone so long
But I kept holding on
Cause I need to show you just how I much I love you this Christmas

Is it the lights in your eyes?
They've never shown so bright
I've waited all year to be near to the one I've been missing

This Christmas (You're the one I've been missing)
Oh oh oh (To the one I've been missing)
You're the one I've been missing (You're the one I've been missing)
No oh (To the one I've been missing)

Jesy:
I've felt too lonely to sleep
Boy when you're on the wrong side of the world
Now with the snow at our feet
We'll sit by the fire and we'll set the scene together
Dream together
Baby there's no better gift
And now that I have you here
That's when I feel it the most

Perrie (Jade):
Cause I've been gone so long (Leigh-Anne: Gone so long)
But I kept holding on (Oh oh oh)
Cause I need to show you just how I much I love you this Christmas (Leigh-Anne: Love you this Christmas)

Is it the lights in your eyes?
They've never shown so bright (Shown so bright)
I've waited all year (Ooh oh oh) to be near to the one I've been missing (Ooh oh)

This Christmas (Little Mix: You're the one I've been missing)

Leigh Anne (Little Mix):
This Christmas (To the one I've been missing)

Jesy (Little Mix):
Yeah you're the one I've been missing (You're the one I've been missing)

Jade (Little Mix):
This Christmas (To the one I've been missing)
Oh oh

Leigh-Anne (Little Mix):
To the one I've been missing (To the one I've been missing)

Jesy (Little Mix):
This Christmas (You're the one I've been missing)

Jade and Perrie:
To the one (To the one I've been missing)

Perrie:
Yeah oh nah-oh

Jesy (and Jade):
To the one (I've been missing)
