on christmas morning
outside was pouring
all was hopeless in this home
and no one speaking
no one creeping
to see if she was on the phone
and you were quiet
this routine riot
was all but practical to me
and if we see here
why can't we be here
can we let each other be?

forget december
it won't be better
than i remember it before
and this month only
would be so lonely
and not so holy anymore

and new year's eve came
but nothing had changed
all the problems just got worse
we sat in silence
the routine science
could hear the sickness we rehearsed
and if i'm talking
my words are mocking
the deaf ears they have fallen on
these words are tainted
with years so jaded
in a sense that's all but gone

forget december
it won't be better
than i remember it before
and this month only
would be so lonely
and not so holy anymore

anymore...

forget december
it won't be better
than i remember it before
and this month only
would be so lonely
and not so holy anymore

forget december
it won't be better
than i remember it before
our silent night won't feel quite right
it's not so silent anymore

anymore...

on christmas morning
outside was pouring
all was hopeless in this home

    General Commenti think the lyrics are a bit wrong

    i am pretty sure it is "we sat in silence, this routine science" and "it was all but practical to me"

    maybe im wrong?

    but nehow, how i think this song is about going home for the holidays and the family is really not on good terms and they are always fighting, especially during christmas time when there is so much stress.

    General CommentWhat a crappy December he had.... from the lyrics of the song, this guy's December not only involved a breakup with a girl, but also a family that was at odds. To top it off, it was rainy and it just got worse as it progressed! This guy had it rough... I feel sorry for him.

    Hmm... come to think of it, this guy and I have too much in common... December 2002. I really was trying to forget December. Aww....

    General CommentSomething corporate has been my favortie band for about 3 years now and I like the way the vocals change in song, Lyrics are damm near perfect but that is nothing new, Andrew is great singer song writer and to me it's there best upbeat song they have. I hope SOCO keeps this up for as long as possible.

    General CommentThis song helped me through my Sucky Christmas. My parents told me of my mum having an affair on christmas day. This song means so much to me because the lyrics are so cleaverly written that it's almost my december in something corporate words. It showed me that I'm not alone and that these things happen and you have to basically "forget december".
