"Christmas Present" as written by and Stephen Bryce Avary....
What a perfect ending
To this film we are watching.
Cause she loves her boyfriend
Like he has loved his girlfriend.
Just like the night sleeps on by.
Just like the sun wakes the sky.
They are so in love.
Like we are so in love.

So hug it tight and embrace it.
Don't let the world deface it.
Just let it shout with amazement.
As we dance tonight.
Just like the cold becomes spring
Just like the perfect day dream.
Just like your pretty eyes gleam.
We are so in love
Oh.

Please Mister spare some change
For a poor broken man in need.
I'm sick and dying,
Walking barefoot.
Please just buy me a drink.
The truth is that I'd like to die,
but I fear of where I could go.
(For that's real)
Cause take a look,
I'm so drunk, stupid and worthless
For some Jesus you feel (that's real).

So let me get this straight
Cause I have a question.
You're saying he'd listen
If I were to speak.
Yes, that's what I'm saying.
In fact, I was just thinking,
He's probably thinking
Of asking you the same very thing.
He wants to say you're okay.
Be my Friend.
Let me help you
And take you out of this lake.
You are clearly drowning in.
Make me yours
And I'll make you mine.

So hey, listen up friends
Good news is coming.
Soon is the end.
Of all the worlds' troubles
And all of its' sin.
I said, hey,
Listen up friends.
Good news is coming.
Soon is the end.
Of all the worlds' troubles.
And all of its' sin.

    General Commentthis song is about how a begger finds god. he may or may not be talking to bryce, but he poses the question of, even though i'm a begger, when i speak god will listen? and then this other person says that god WILL listen and wants to accept you as his friend and wants the begger to accept him.

    and how finding god will help the world be a better palace "soon is the end of all the worlds troubles, and all of its sin"

    Oh-ho-whoa


    [Silence]

    Please mister spare some change
    For a poor broken man in need
    I’m sick and dying walking barefoot
    Please just buy me a drink

    The truth is that I’d like to die
    But I fear of where I could go, that’s real
    ‘Cause take a look; I’m so drunk, stupid, and worthless
    For some Jesus you feel, that’s real

    So let me get this straight
    Cause I have a question
    You’re saying he’d listen if I were to speak
    Yes that’s what I’m saying, in fact I was just thinking
    He’s probably thinking of asking you the same very thing
    He wants to say “you’re okay, be my friend
    Let me help you and take you out of this lake that you are clearly drowning in
    Make me yours and I’ll make your mine”

    So hey, listen up friends
    Good news is coming,
    Soon is the end of all the world’s troubles
    And all of its sin.
    I said hey, listen up friends
    Oh, good news it coming,
    Soon is the end of all the world’s troubles
    And all of it’s sin

    General CommentThis song is confusing. I like it, but it's confusing. The first part, on the surface, is pretty self-explanatory. When I heard it, I just thought he was singing about how valuable love is and how we shouldn't let it go to waste. But then he paints himself as a beggar, and the next part is basically about finding Jesus (which, I'm assuming, is where the title 'Christmas Present') comes in. Then, in the last verse, he talks about judgement day? They seem like they're completely unconnected songs.

    So if anyone takes time to listen to this song and try to understand it can you please explain it to me. :-)

    General CommentPersonally, I think it's a great song and all, but they dragged it out a bit much. The Rocket Summer is pretty much the only pop-ish-like band I listen to... I'm more into Hardcore and Metal... and all that jazz, but I really enjoy them, and this song really let me down. I love the lyrics, and I have to agree with "absolutdance" That it's indeed about the beggar and all, but please... it was WAY too lengthy.

    General Commentlove love love this song.
    I think bryce is trying to say that not matter how low you are in life, Jesus will talk to you and save you. The part, The truth is that I’d like to die
    But I fear of where I could go, that’s real
    ‘Cause take a look; I’m so drunk, stupid, and worthless
    For some Jesus you feel, that’s real

    That part. Oh buddie. It is perfect.
