12/25

January 17, 2011

(Originally posted here on 20th December 2010)

In the grand tradition of Wham and Mariah Carey (ummm, maybe that’s using the term ‘grand’ a bit too loosely..), here is last year’s attempt at a Glenn Oke Kristmas Klassic.  Took a bit of artistic license using the USA dating system (well, considering it’s *about* an american..) and maybe subbing in ’07 for ’05, but still..  One of my favourite things I’ve ever written.

12/25

it’s 12/25 again and you’re not here again
and i’m remembering ’07 when you and i were at my friends
and we caught the train back and forth all day, we went from place to place
and i can still remember all the snowflakes melting on your face

and then you say you love me and i say i feel the same
and you tell me that i’m special, oh my god how things have changed
but you meant it when you said it and i hope you don’t regret it
cuz i mean it when i say it when i’m drunk

and i call you on the phone
wondering if you’re all alone
cuz i love you so much that it burns a hole in my soul..
defying logic and reason
my heart is breaking each season
and i love you so much i still lose control..

it’s 12/25 again and you’re not here again
and it’s been a year since everything i feared finally happened
and i’ve been through twelve hundred since i last held you in my arms
but i always turn the lights out so i can see your face in the dark

and then they say they love me and i never feel the same
and i tell them that they’re special but i just don’t feel that way
and god i’m oh so lonely now with every season past
and i just wish that i could see you again..

and i call you on the phone
wondering if you’re all alone
cuz i love you so much that it burns a hole in my soul..
defying logic and reason
my heart is breaking with each and every season
and i love you so much i still lose control..
