Another year, another tree
But this year you won't be with me
And it don't feel much like Christmas
We used to watch the same old shows
Sing Social D on the radio
But it don't feel much like Christmas

This used to be my favourite holiday
My Christmas Eve was filled with dreams
But you chased them all away

Why did you leave me for Christmas?
You left me lonely it's true
Could you have waited til New Years?
At least the year would be through
And now the mistletoe's hangin
For no reason at all
And all the presents are still wrapped
But you don't even call

I took a walk to where we go
There were lights and there was snow
But it don't feel much like Christmas
And people ask me how you've been
I fake a smile and I say "Okay"
But I don't feel much like Christmas

You used to be my favourite holiday
But now you're gone, I'm all alone
And all that I can say

Why did you leave me for Christmas?
You've left me lonely it's true
Could you have waited til New Years?
At least the year would be through
And now the mistletoe's hangin
For no reason at all
And all the presents are still wrapped
But you don't even call

Waiting here alone
Christmas by the phone
Said I'm waiting here alone
Spending Christmas by the phone

    General Commenti have this song. Its a great song... its very different to their other songs but it has heaps of meaning. Its about their dad leaving them at christmas time. I used to think it was about an ex girlfriend lol!

    General CommentI'm guessing its actually joel singing - benji's voice is a lot more ...'rough'. N I think it must be an older song because Joel seems to be almost straining his voice at some points but it's awesome. G.C's best songs are nearly always about their dad or their relationship with their parents.
