Please help with lyrics - George Baker - Another Lonely Christmas Night?

My English is not very good can you help me with lyrics? I've written down what I understood:

Hasty people all around 

I’m on my way back home

No ones waiting there for me

I live my life alone

A choir is singing Christmas songs on their tv

Electric candles burning in the plastic tree

Having known that have the worst time of my life

These lonely Christmas nights

Me and grandads through the chores (?) 

When I was four years old

Thousand voices from the sky were singing Christmas songs

On the way back home you tried me to explain

About the wonder of the child (???)

Oh I wish the time could stop you for a while

These lonely Christmas nights x2

Now I try to make this Christmas on my own (?)

Without the wonders that makes the house a home

Oh I wish that I could start the brand new life

These lonely Christmas nights x3

    === I corrected it in a few places

    Hasty people all around

    I’m on my way back home

    No ones waiting there for me

    I live my life alone

    A choir is singing Christmas songs on the tv

    Electric candles burning in the plastic tree

    === Corrections

    Heaven knows that I've had the worst time of my life

    These lonely Christmas nights

    ==== corrections

    Me and grandads to the church 

    When I was four years old

    === correction just added "A"

    A thousand voices from the sky were singing Christmas songs

    === Bad English , but correct

    On the way back home you tried me to explain

    ==== additions (he's talking about Jesus born in

    ==== Bethlehem

    About the wonder of the child of Bethlehem

    ==== correction

    Oh I wish the time could stop here for a while

    These lonely Christmas nights x2

    ==== maybe "on my own" is probably right, but could be "all my own"

    Now I try to make this Christmas all my own (or "on my own")

    ====== correction added "always" don't know if I actually

    === hear the word "that"  

    Without the wonders that always makes this house a home

    Oh I wish that I could start the brand new life

    These lonely Christmas nights x3

      I don't believe "English" is George Baker's 1st language 
      and it has error of translations.
       
      ::: On the way back home you tried me to explain

      would be 

      ::: On the way back home you tried to explain to me 

      There are also some possible verb tense issues 
      and added "s" on the end of words.
