Outside my window the snow on the ground
That used to be sugar, the salt melted brown
And the fairy lights strung on the fire escape
Are broken and flapping like old cassette tape

The bells on the block toll mournfully slow
I’m wearing a coat but there’s nowhere to go
Since you’ve been gone there’s no holiday cheer
xmas ain’t coming this year

And why do they lie?
There’s no joy in the world

Grandma and her church group
flew off to Rome
Dad and that woman
have a newborn at home
My brother would visit
he wrote in the mail,
But if he quits rehab
he’s going to jail

Radiators stop
when the wind starts to blow
So I’m wearing a coat
but there’s nowhere to go

I’m stuck without you, my red-nosed reindeer
Xmas ain’t coming this year

And why do they lie?
There’s no joy in the world

So I open a can of cranberry sauce
And in each perfect slice see the life that was lost
But, wrapped in your parka, sometimes love feels so near…

I guess xmas
ain’t coming

…it’s here...
