Well, one could say that he kept his promise ...

On December 25, 2007, Murray Gold introduced "The Stowaway" during the Doctor Who Christmas special, "Voyage of the Damned," and many a Doctor/Rose shipper believed that the lyrics represented the Doctor's yearning for Rose. I was thinking on them tonight and came to the conclusion that if they were indeed intended to represent the Doctor's state of mind, well, he kept his promise.



"BEG ..."
"That's me. When we first met. And you made me better. And now you can do the same for him. He needs you. That's very me."
"BORROW ..."



"OR STEAL ..."



"I'LL FIND A WAY ..."



"TO BE WITH MY LOVER ON CHRISTMAS DAY."



I think it's safe to assume that December 25, 2008, while the Doctor may have been fighting Cybermen and Miss Hartigan, the Doctor (in Pete's World) was with his lover on Christmas Day. :D
    "The Stowaway"

    Once I found a stowaway
    Upon my ship on Christmas Day
    I was fair so I gave him a chance
    "You shouldn't be here,
    What's your tale?
    I ought to throw you to the whale."
    He just smiled and said,
    "Come here, let's dance."

    He said, "Borrow or steal,
    I'll find a way
    To be with my lover upon Christmas Day
    And I'll run and I'll roam
    I'll cover the ground
    This Christmas I'll see you
    I'll be around."

    He told me 'bout his girl back home
    Waiting patient, all alone
    While we danced I shed a little tear
    He closed his eyes, all out at sea,
    I think he danced with her not me
    I'll just have to wait another year.

    He said, "Borrow or steal,
    I'll find a way
    To be with my lover upon Christmas Day
    And I'll run and I'll roam
    I'll cover the ground
    This Christmas I'll see you
    I'll be around."

    I think of him now and again
    I wonder how his journey ends
    As I sail by on my lonesome sea
    That stranger with the haunting face
    Here then gone without a trace
    Lying with his love, that's where he'll be.

    "Beg, borrow or steal
    I'll find a way
    To be with my lover next Christmas Day
    And I'll run and I'll roam
    I'll cover the ground
    Next Christmas I'll see you
    I'll be around."

    "Beg, borrow or steal
    I'll find a way
    To be with my lover next Christmas Day
    And I'll run and I'll roam
    I'll cover the ground
    Next Christmas I'll see you
    I'll be around."
