Christmas eve lonesome bitterness blues

lyrics

rain, hide
wait on a bench in the park
for the sky to crack open and give me a sign
fine, I'll walk some more with myself trying
to pretend I'm with someone I need
I ain't got
the kind of trophies you keep on the shelf or
the bright photos to remember the days
you were happy beyond compare
and chose to show the rest of the world
fear strikes, along with the holiday bells
I don't have the strength to get out of bed
I fear I've lost my way what else to say
homebound
realize there is no one around now
jimmy stewart now I know what it feels like
when you seem to leave no trace behind your
passing through this rotten world
when the sun shined
I hated every christmas to death
right, I'm bitter and cynic and restless
oh father please burn out all these candles
I hope you notice this lame misery
I hope this all ends mysteriously
and dumbstruck, everyone will question their needs
I fear I've lost my way
what’s more to say
I fear I’m wasting my days
I hope that it pays
I fear I'll find a way
past christmas day
