Please take down the mistletoe
'Cause I don't wanna think about that right now
'Cause everything I want is miles away
Snow covered little town
My momma's in the kitchen, worrying about me
Season's greetings, hope you're well
Well I'm doing alright
If you were wondering
Lately I can never tell

I know this shouldn't be a lonely time
But there were Christmases when you were mine

I've been doing fine without you, really
Up until the nights got cold
And everybody's here, except you, baby
Seems like everyone's got someone to hold

But for me it's just a lonely time
'Cause there were Christmases when you were mine

Merry Christmas everybody
That'll have to be something I just say this year
I'll bet you got your mom another sweater
And were your cousins late again
When you were putting up the lights this year
Did you notice one less pair of hands

I know this shouldn't be a lonely time
But there were Christmases when I didn't wonder how you are tonight
'Cause there were Christmases when you were mine

You were mine

    General CommentWell, this song explains itself.

    She is going thru a Christmas without her boyfriend.

    "I know this shouldn't be a lonly time."

    That's my favorite part.

    General Commentthis song touches me so much....bout 3 yrs ago I was dating a guy who shared 2 Christmases w/ me an dthen last year we broke up so Christmas was a lil awkward yes....but I actually had a good time barely even thought bout him I went outside to warm the car up to leave for me family and when I turned on the radio I heard this song and I have never heard it b4! Ya I broke down in tears but fell in love with it! It touched base with me so amzingly well it shocked me! It was exactly me and me ex adn i had been wanting to write a song or somethin to kinda remind me and this song was perfect. But it just amazed me how it was one ive nvr heard and exactly me and him...mainly its a grl goin through a break up still missing her ex and having her forst christmas without him and wondering if the christmases are still the same for him or if he was missing her....

    General CommentYou can tell a song is truly beautiful when you get teary eyed listening and it's not even because you're in a situation where you can relate. This song is so incredibly heartbreaking. "I've been doing fine without you, really".

    MemoryYeah...i have the same experience.....he moved to abroad last summer but he always wanted me to stay faithful to him...but after 3 months he said he 's over it....i still can't stand the whole thing....i still yearn for him...but he ignores me ...This year is my first Christmas without him...i know he won't care 'bout me....but i do love him till the end :(
