Track Name: breaking up for christmas
wendy
i try to be friendly
but lately you send me
into the red

jakey
the weather's too chilly
for both of our heartbeats
and both of our heads

there's just one thing, my dear
on my list this year

breaking up for christmas
breaking up for christmas

love weighs
heavy these december days
you won't change your ways
and i won't change mine

it's time to
set aside what we've been through
start our lives brand new
in the yuletide

a i'll sing a holiday cheer
(rah! rah!)
when you're no longer here

breaking up for christmas
breaking up for christmas

we... could have saved our romance
not a chance
what if i'd bought you a ring?
not my thing
i gave up so much to be with you
oh, boo-hoo
there's nothing left that's worth fighting for
there's the door

it's winter in both of our hearts
this is the easiest part
let's not pretend

the credits have come to an end
we're divying up all our friends
and sleeping in separate beds
let's not pretend

santa just bring us a breakup
that's all we need
we'll leave you cookies and milk
and some reindeer feed

breaking up for christmas
breaking up for christmas
Track Name: winter without you
december's just another month on the west coast
the sun is shining through the airport window
watching the flights change to delayed

'cause out east is a shaken snow globe
but that's where you are and where i want to go
everyone's grounded, crowded alone

what a holiday
storms will have their way
but i don't think i'll make it through
a winter without you

you almost have to laugh at the circumstance
we never had a fighting chance
i feel you slipping through my hands

i wish that i could see your smiling face
as i meet you with a warm embrace
but that's a punchline all in my mind

what a holiday
storms will have their way
but i don't think i'll make it through
a winter without you

even in my dreams you...
seem to...
fade out of my sight
into the freezing, snowy night

what a holiday
storms will have their way
but i don't think i'll make it through
a winter without you
