about

I don't really know this many people, and most of my friends are really happy! I can't stand any of them.

lyrics

I've got a friend who can't wait to go grey
And another who dying it black

I got a friend who's just tired of love
And another who begs for it back

I know a guy who stays up every night
Can't find a way deep into sleep

I know a girl who falls right into bed
With every single person she meets

But we don't go to pieces, we just go on believing things can change,
Yeah we'll always have next year.

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
All my broken hearted friends
Merry Christmas, holiday wishes
May our friendship never end
We're all angels in snow, with our sadness in tow
But we'll never be alone
If we're singing along

I got a friend who I can't really stand
But I'd kill the guy who got him to fight

I got a friend who can't help but make me laugh
But when he's drunk he can't help but cry

And I knew a man not that long in the tooth
But he still had to go on and die

And I know that we all have made our mistakes
And I also know that we all be fine

Cause we don't go to pieces, we just go on believing things can change,
We will always have next year.

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
All my broken hearted friends
Merry Christmas, holiday wishes
May these stories never end
We're all angels in snow, with our sadness in tow
And we'll never be alone
When we're singing along
