"When Christmas Comes To Town" is a Christmas song written by Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard and performed by Matthew Hall and Meagan Moore (as Billy and Hero Girl respectively) in The Polar Express. Billy and Hero Girl sing it while looking out from the back of the train before they reach the North Pole.


La la la la la la la
La-la-la la la
La-la-la la la
I'm wishing on a star
And trying to believe
That even though it's far
He'll find me Christmas Eve
I guess that Santa's busy
'Cause he's never come around
I think of him
When Christmas comes to town
The best time of the year
When everyone comes home
With all this Christmas cheer
It's hard to be alone
Putting up the Christmas tree
With friends who come around
It's so much fun
When Christmas comes to town
Presents for the children
Wrapped in red and green
All the things I've heard about
But never really seen
No one will be sleeping on
The night of Christmas Eve
Hoping Santa's on his way
When Santa's sleigh bells ring
I listen all around
The herald angels sing
I never heard a sound
And all the dreams of children
Once lost will all be found
That's all I want
When Christmas comes to town
That's all I want
When Christmas comes to town
