lyrics

Mama's telling me to slow my roll
But we were young and dumb and so in love
I remember when I saw you first
Alley Katz December 21st
Your smile really had me feeling right
As Christmas lights reflected from your eyes
Hands laced together on Cary Street
The snow is soaking through the Vans on my feet

Despite it being 32 degrees
You light a fire in my bones
When I hear you speak

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
I played on a mixtape as we drove in your car
And this year the distance is clear
It turns out you're nothing special

Your beauty used to leave a glare
Like snowflakes falling in your hair
Our matching stockings no longer hung with care
The needles fall from the tree
St. Nick set me up to believe
If I stayed faithful to you
you would be everything I would need
Under the tree

So next year when you go downstairs
Don't expect me to be standing there

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
I played on a mixtape as we drove in your car
And this year the distance is clear
It turns out you're nothing special

You're dying to know if you ruined Christmas

Well put it on your wish list
