I can’t remember smiles on Christmas day
And even if I smile it wasn’t real anyway
What I do recall is laying in the snow
And wishing I didn’t have to go home
I know this isn’t what you want to hear
But I’m not looking forward to Christmas this year

So I'll sleep on it, and dream on it
And hope to find a reason on this day
That I can break away
And start over, but I’m not so sure
That this one will be different than the last
And I can leave all of those winters in the past

I can always tell it’s coming by the way
Silent winds are growing colder everyday
And I can hear the freezing hands of time
Slowing down as people pass me by
And I know this isn't what they want to hear
But I’m not looking forward to Christmas this year

So I'll sleep on it, and dream on it
And hope to find a reason on this day
That I can break away
And start over, but I’m not so sure
That this one will be different than the last
And I can leave all of those winters in the past

So I'll sleep on it, and dream on it
And hope to find a reason on this day
That I can break away
And start over, but I’m not so sure
That this one will be different than the last
And I can leave all of those winters in the past

    General CommentI cant believe there are no comments on this amazing song.
    Its really full of emotions, and the muisc is great, i love it. heres my interptation:
    I think its about someone that lost all happiness and prefers to be closed inside his own darkness. christmas symbolizes happiness, but hes not excpecting it cus for him happiness is not real anymore.
    "And even if I smile it wasn’t real anyway"- can relate a lot to that. sometimes we all smile when we really feel like crying, like we try to show that we're happy but all thats there is fake 'happiness'. amazingness of a song
