Kelly Clarkson and Brett Eldredge's Christmas song is just what you need to get into the yuletide spirit.

She has a 2013 Christmas album, Wrapped in Red, that's beloved by fans, in addition to a second LP, When Christmas Comes Around..., filled with a treasure trove of classics (old and new).

Every time I look around this room
My eyes, they tend to fall on you
And I confess
Nothing but you makes sense
Memories fill my heart
And I can barely keep my tears from fallin'
Oh, I want your love
Do you ever think of us?

Is it too late, too late
To open up?
I'm dyin' to say
Oh, how I love you
You're walkin' towards me now
(What am I gonna say?)

Push my pride aside
When I close my eyes
It's just you and I
Here under the mistletoe
Magic fills the air
Standin' over there
Santa hear my prayer
Here under the mistletoe

All I want, hey, yeah
All I want, hey, hey, yeah
All I want, hey, yeah
Is under the mistletoe

Oh, everything I try
To keep you from gettin' inside
Works until I see your face
I linger, hopin' you might stay
Wrapped up in your arms
Is where I wanna spend my nights
So hard, how much I want you
Do you think of us?
How I want your love

Is it too late, too late
To let you know
I can't quite escape
How much I need you
You're walkin' towards me now
(What am I gonna say?)

Push my pride aside
When I close my eyes
It's just you and I
Here under the mistletoe
Magic fills the air
Standin' over there
Santa hear my prayer
Here under the mistletoe

Kelly Clarkson and Brett Eldredge perform "Under the Mistletoe"

All I want, hey, yeah (all I really, really ever want)
All I want, hey, hey, yeah (all I really, really ever want)
All I want, hey, yeah (all I really, really ever want)
Is under the mistletoe

You're walkin' towards me now
Won't you read my mind somehow?
Meet me in the middle, underneath a little bit of mistletoe
No indecision, take a breath as I

Push my pride aside
When I close my eyes
It's just you and I
Here under the mistletoe
Magic fills the air
Standin' over there (standin' over there)
Santa hear my prayer
Here under the mistletoe

All I want, hey, yeah (all I really, really ever want)
All I want, hey, hey, yeah (all I really, really ever want)
All I want, hey, yeah (all I really, really ever want)

Push my pride aside, aside, aside
It's just you and I (it's just you and I)
All I want (I'm pushin' my pride aside, aside, aside)
All I want (baby, it's just you and I)
Is you (oh, it's only you)
Is you, oh
