Track Name: A Present
Coloured lights
Illuminate these dark days
And these long nights
This winter I feel
Frozen in time

The way your breath
Hangs in front of your lips
Like the clock stopped
Like I wished it would
This is the season for wishing

Because

It's a wonderful life
Sometimes
And every time a bell rings
My heart stops beating

I'll be glad when this year
Is dead and gone
I'll lay to rest
This calendar
That marks the days
Since you left me

I'll be no use to anyone
Until at least the end of February
When the thaw
Melts the ice
From my lungs
And I can breath

Because

It's a wonderful life
Sometimes
And every time a bell rings
My heart stars to sing this song

The only thing I want this year is you
And I know old acquaintances can be forgot
And the only thing I want to hear at this time of year
Is a silent night

Joy to the world, I am delivered to your door
In time for Christmas
Where you can rip me open and tear me apart
Joy to the world, I am discarded by next year
And you'll get a new toy
And you'll break it again
