Always Winter, Never Christmas

from by Dinner Party



You woke to find your youngest son
Climbing up the chimney
Tears of broken-hearted love
Rolled down his neck

"I'm not worth enough for you to keep on trying.
I've had bad luck before, and even poorer timing."

You woke to find a brand-new gun
Sleeping underneath the tree
Waiting to ignite the world
On New Year's Eve

I'm just drunk enough to say "I'm sorry to be here"
I short circuit the love you felt for me for three years

I said I'm sorry, sweetheart
I'm sorry you unwrapped
Your deadbeat dad again
On Christmas morning
