Track Name: For Christmas
Christmas is supposed to be the happiest time, you see
But everything is crumbling
Everybody laughs at me and they hide behind their Christmas trees
More and more I'm stumbling
And as it's getting dark, I hear voices in the park
But I can't stand the singing
Because there's a pain inside, but I've got friends and gifts to buy
These presents mean nothing

It's oh so cold, the weather outside is frightful
I'm spending Christmas alone
And you don't understand that the only thing that I want is

What I can't have
What I can't have
What I can't have
For Christmas

Life is like a Christmas tree, decorated it's nice to see
But take away the ornaments
And what is left behind is just a creature bound to die
Thrown out with the evidence
And as it's getting dark, I hear voices in the park
But I can't stand the singing
Because there's a pain inside, but I've got friends and gifts to buy
These presents mean nothing

(repeat prechorus)

(repeat chorus 3x)

Silent night, lonely night
I'm a wreck, nothing's right
Round your neck hangs the pendant I gave
Alone in the bed where we both used to lay
I can't get any sleep, Merry Christmas to me
To me, to me

Christmas is supposed to be the happiest time, you see
But everything is crumbling
