Twenty-Something Christmas

released December 2020

Verse 1:

I heard those sleigh bells jingling
Ring-ting-tingling and had to force a smile
The magic of December hasn’t been here for a while
The snow’s not coming down
And my Christmas tree burned down
My boyfriend used the mistletoe as an excuse to get around

Pre-Chorus 1:

And everybody’s asking me what I want the most this year
Well, Santa can you bring me health-insurance and a good career

 

Chorus:

La da da da da
I know this sounds dramatic 
La da da da da
I’ve lost the Christmas magic
I’m saying “Happy Holidays” 
But I’m stuck in a melancholy haze
La da da da da
Can someone bring some Christmas cheer to me?

 

Verse 2:

My cheeks are nice and rosy
Got a Rudolph nose because I’ve had too much to drink
I’m lying through my teeth and drinking whiskey neat
My family pushed me to the brink 
They’re asking about my job
But looking down at me like snobs
I think I need a sleigh ride out of here

 

Pre-Chorus 2:

I tried to build a snowman but there’s no magic in the air
Only greenhouse gases, so Frosty melted to a puddle of Christmas tears

 

Chorus (2x):

La da da da da
I know this sounds dramatic 
La da da da da
I’ve lost the Christmas magic
I’m saying “Happy Holidays,” 
But I’m stuck in a melancholy haze
La da da da da
Can someone bring some Christmas cheer to me?
