Our circumstances are unhealthy and twisted
But brought us back here in this city on Christmas
So climb up four flights if weather permits
I've got all the right tools and a few friends enlisted

Put up your legs an I'll help pull your boots off,
Socks and your thermals and all the snow soaked through
The holiday grants us a few more excuses
Celebrate in the morning, going home without you

And maybe you're just lonely
Know that we're both lonely

My resolution's not to call you
And we'll finally drift apart
The promises I make
Always tend to break
And I end up back at the start

There's no one going home with me this Christmas
There's no one going home with me this Christmas
No one, no one, no one

With skin pale as snow
And eyes that burn like fire
Gifts under the tree
So well-wrapped and compiled
Each present a gesture of time spent thinking of you
We packaged what's left and disguised all our issues

This city is so quiet
Just lay with me in silence

My resolution's not to call you
And we'll finally drift apart
The promises I make
Always tend to break
And we end up back at the start

There's no one going home with me this Christmas
There's no one going home with me this Christmas
No one, no one, no one

This Christmas day, I know you need to be loved
When the New Year comes around,
We will surely self-destruct

There's no one going home with me this Christmas
There's no one going home with me this Christmas
No one, no one, no one.

There's no one going home with me this Christmas
No one, no one, no one.

    General CommentAnother great The Honorary Title song. Up until now, I thought no sad Christmas song could compare to Roy Orbison's 'Pretty Paper,' or that 'Last Christmas' song. Jarrod's singing and his lyrics are mesmerizing. Seeing THT perform live (and meeting Jarrod; he's really witty) was really one of the best, most memorable concert experiences.
