Thanks for the Christmas card
I don't want to hear about your new job now
I don't want to hear about your new boyfriend
I don't want to hear about it all working out for you
No, I don't want to hear it now

I don't want to hear about your swinging new place
I don't want to hear how everyone thinks it's great
I just want to sit in our apartment and hate you
Yes, I will be hating you for Christmas

You can have the Christmas tree
Remember when we bought it at the store down the street?
Remember when I found that cheesy color wheel?
I don't want to think about the lights on your white skin
No, I don't want to think about it

I don't want to think about last year at your dad's
You said it was the best sex that we both ever had
I don't want to think about my face in your soft hair
I will be hating you for Christmas

I must be losing my mind
There's gotta be a better way to deal with the pain
There's gotta be a better way to deal with the hate
Wish that I could find some way to make you go away
Wish that I could have a drink and make you fade
I wish that I could have myself a drink and make you fade
I wish that I could have a drink and make you go away

Yeah make you go away
Wish that I could make you go away
I will be hatng you for Christmas
Yeah I will be hating you for Christmas

Thanks for the Christmas card

    General CommentThis is a song about Art having a breakup with his girlfriend right before Christmas and reminiscing about their good time, but not wanting to think about her.

    General Commenti always pictured this song as a man's first x-mas without his ex-wife and he's singing this to say yeah, that was fun, but this is a whole lot funner (i know it's not a word; i'm not a retard)

    General CommentI dig this song the most out of all the Everclear songs. I guess know the feelings and frustration of this song. It really touches on the subject of women always wanting to be able and talk to their exes and expect them to understand. I know we men can be A-holes, but jesus! where's the sense in rehashing everything? "I wish that I could have a drink and make you go away!" But it doesn't work. It just aggravates the situation. The old girlfriend is trying to talk her old boyfriend like everything is all honky dory and she's oblivious. That just kills the dude. Maybe she should listen to some Alanis Morrisette so she'll understand. He still wants her but he's doing his best to forget her. She's not an option anymore but she ain't making it easy either.

    General CommentThe more he says he doesnt want to think about her the more he thinks about her. No matter how hard he tries not to he keeps thinking about her
