"No Christmas While I'm Talking" as written by and Peter M Bauer Matthew Frederick Barrick....
When I was told
You lied to me
I hung my head in shame.
When I was told
You were cheating me
I bit my lip in pain.

So back up,
Back away.
And you better know now,
Just for a little while,
So it one more time,
Just for a little while.

Oh, back up,
Back far away.
And you better know
Just for a little while,
Do it one more time,
Just for a little while.

    General CommentWhile the lyrics are kind of underwhelming on paper, this song is probably one of my favorites on the album. Everything is done so perfectly. It really has to be heard, not read.

    General Commenti'd have to agree. you can't just read or say the lyrics you have to sing them or hear them be sung. it an unmesureable amout of frustration being convayed.

    General Commenti love this song, its pretty much my favorite song by them. The simplicity of the lyrics really show how much emotion he can put into a song - and i dont know many people who can do that. I feel like he is consumed by a relationship. On one hand he knows how terribly the woman treats him and tells her to back up and leave him alone. Yet at the same time its 'just for a little while' because soon they'll do it one more time in just a little while.
