Gerry's Down Home Christmas - Mu330

It's like everyday every day's Christmas its like everyday
I think I could tell you I think I gotta tell you
You've set up permanent camp in my brain
She's holding out for someone
But she's holding on to someone
I don't know why it's like it's like everyday every day's Christmas
I spend time thinking about your hair
The way you brush it away from your eyes
I waste my time stealing your stares
I know they're meant for other guys
I think I should tell you how much I think about you
Didn't mean to but you made a mess of me
I'm holding out for someone
Are you holding out for someone?
I need to know
It's like its like everyday every day's
Christmas eve

My money's been spent on an empty apartment
The wind seeps thru the cracks it crawls down the walls and creeps up my back
Ever since you in September decided you do better than cracks
I want you back my car won't go it's buried in snow I think
I lost my keys
The cracks are growing and I'm going to freeze
Ever since you in October
decided you were over
with cracks I want you back
I could fight the could
if I had you to hold
Without you I may crack
Last month you saw my walls
and you were appalled
My toilet won't flush I think all of the pipes have cracked from ice
Ever since this last November I couldn't conceal the cracks
I want you back I could fight the cold if I had you to hold
I need you cuz I might snap
I need you to fix my cracks

This guy just moved next door to me and
I think he's kind of strange
I got this neighbor who wears shiny black boots
and a big brass belt buckle with a big white beard
and tiny wire rim glasses with lots of short friends
Who wear pointy little shoes who sends reindeer
Out to get his paper who gets a ton of mail
Mostly written in crayon who when I say "hi"
He says "ho ho ho!" Who's a little overweight
But he seems pretty well natured
I think he eats a little too much milk and cookies
Who always seems to disappear round late December
I'll bet he's visiting his family it's probably
The only thing he does that's slightly normal

Last year we went sledding til we couldn't sled no more
It was so cold we went inside and threw
Our wet clothes on the floor, it seems like forever since
We warmed up together this year more than ever
You let me put my hands where they wouldn't be so cold
And I remember how you laughed when I kissed your runny nose
We made some hot chocolate but forgot all about it
This year more than any year
I wish I was coming home but the snow and ice has got
Me stuck on the road
If we were together I'd stay close forever
This year more than ever I'm coming home

You're not alone not alone as you feel
She gets so depressed around Christmas late December
Is the time to remember all the people who've left her
She's more in tune with Halloween
Do you know what I mean cuz all the ghosts
They're all fake and the ghosts of Christmas too real
to take Christmas dinner we say grace
we hold our hands and we stare at our plates
What's the secret to forget
How do we start to accept?

Just three more days til Christmas and there's
Just one thing on my wish list I don't care
If the snow doesn't fall or if there's no holly
To deck the halls but if you were wrapped in
Ribbons of red and if you forgot what I had said
And if you were wearing Santa's hat and grabbed
My hand and took me back well the snow would fall
And we'd deck the halls and the candy canes they
Would fall like rain and you'd dance under the tree
With me just two more days til Christmas and I still
Haven't seen a package on that stands about five foot
Tall with little airholes in the sides I would throw
The wrapping to the sides and you'd be standing there
All smiles just one more day til Christmas and I still
Feel so powerless, downtown you can hear the bells
And if I had reindeer and I had elves I would fly
To your rooftop and bring you presents and we'd
Make up and then you would see my Christmas dreams
All come true in front of me

Christmas Merry Christmas to you!
Ho Ho Ho!
