Track Name: Christmas Really Sucks
christmas really sucks
music and lyrics by jay brannan

it's cold, but light outside
another sleepless night
and santa never made it

it's just another day
at least it feels that way
it's christmas, and i hate it

the streets are empty
and so am i
to "merry christmas" i reply

don't put your trust
in happily ever after
fall if you must
for simple things like laughter
you said you'd always be here
but then you had to go
well, christmas really sucks this year
thought you should know

i'm craving pancakes
so much my stomach aches
but there is nothing open

you're on the telephone
sounds like you're not alone
it's been so long since we've spoken

has your day been merry?
cuz mine's been blue
hey, can i stay in love with you?

don't put your trust
in happily ever after
fall if you must
for simple things like laughter
you said you'd always be here
but then you had to go
well, christmas really sucks this year
thought you should know
