"12.23.95" as written by and James Christopher/burch Adkins....
Didn't mean to leave you hanging on
I didn't mean to leave you all alone
I didn't know what to say
I didn't know what to say

Didn't mean to leave you hanging on
I didn't mean to leave you all alone
I didn't know what to say
Didn't know what to say

Merry Christmas baby
Merry Christmas baby
Merry Christmas baby
Merry Christmas baby
Merry Christmas baby
Merry Christmas baby

Merry Christmas

    General CommentI write these reviews as i listen to the song so i get the full meaning behind them, but this one will be of a personal experience. Before christmas, maybe on this day of the year, my ex and my friend had a bad argument, and i stayed with my girlfriend while my other friend stayed with the one arguing. Well since they were at my house, i decided to leave her for a bit to talk over the argument with my other friend. She got angry at me for deciding to leave to them instead of getting in bed with her. Well i left anyways, and i ended up falling asleep downstairs with them. The next morning really early i wake up and get into bed, but she is very very angry at me, and leaves my house as soon as possible that day. I didnt mean to leave her all alone, or hanging on to me coming back soon enough. Christmas was not very good for me... But anyways thats how i take it, he didnt mean to leave the person hanging on for something that wasn't coming.

    General CommentUm...ok...I think it works like this:

    "Didn't mean to leave you hanging on, I didn't mean to leave you all alone" - he was scared about letting a girl know how he felt, so instead he kept her waiting trying to think of the right thing to say.

    "I didn't know what to say" - never able to think of the right thing to say, he kept the girl waiting, knowing that she would be waiting for a conclusion from him.

    "Merry Christmas, baby" - trying to make the best out of the situation, he wishes her the best, basically saying that he won't be there again to wish her luck over the coming holiday. He has chosen to not be part of what she wants.

    If you disagree, please disregard. Mx.

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who likes him and he never said anything back to her about it. Then finaly he realizes who she is and that she's so wonderful and that he loves her.
