This year got fucked up. Here's to hoping.


It's been a long time since you've been around 
The trees all been trimmed
There's snow in the ground
Hark, the herald angels that cry in the night
What once was lost don't seem wont to be found

But we'll hold onto hope,
That you're somewhere not alone.
Set the table for one more,
Keep one eye upon the door.
We'll keep the fire,
Burning bright,
Til you get home.

It's a wonderful life or so I've been told.
But not all that glitters is wrapped up in gold.
There's ice on the boughs of the trees where we lay
There's a road back to home, but it ain't free from decay. 

Is there a carol to sing that you might finally hear?
Are there bells we could ring that might reach your ear?
How many lights must we light for your vision to clear?
Let's just pack it up, hope for better next year...
