January 8th, 2011. Christmas’s “theme” song.


I discovered a new song this past Christmas that I heard for the first time on the radio… it’s not very uplifting, but it reflects exactly how I felt on Christmas.  I remember being at the bank with Erin and we were fighting and so much was happening, and I just remember hearing this song and wanting to cry and/but absolutely loving it… Hearing it, sadly, started reminding me of Ashley (someone I deeply loved and cared for and respected –a good friend of mine) and my other friends back home… rather, my old friends… my “old life.”

Anyway, I was just reminded of it when I was going through my old phone and had a note to download it.  At any rate, I’m not sure what it reminded me of since my old friends are just that — maybe nostalgia?

Last night, I spent another lonely Christmas

Darlin’, darlin’, you should’ve been there

‘Cuz, all the ones I dream about

You are the one that makes my love shout

You see, you are the only one I care for

Remember the time we swam naked

In your father’s pool?

Boy, he was upset that night

But boy, was that ever cool

Remember that night we played pokeno for money

And you robbed me blind?

Remember how you used to scream so loud

‘Cuz, you, you hated that number 9?

Hey, I saw your sister skatin’ on the lake

This afternoon

Good heaven, how she’s grown

She swoons the boy skaters, she’s so tall

But of all your father’s children

All your father’s children, baby

You know, you are the finest of them all

You are brighter than the northern star

And I, last night, I spent another lonely Christmas

Darlin’, darlin’, you, you should’ve been there

You see, of all the ones I dream about

You are the one that makes my love shout

You see, you are the only one I care for, yeah

My mummy used to say, always trust your lover

But now, I guess that only applies to her

‘Cuz, baby, you promised me

Baby, you promised me, you’d never leave

Then you died on the 25th day of December, oh, baby

Last night, oh, I spent another lonely, lonely Christmas

Darlin’, baby, you, you should’ve been there, oh, oh

‘Cuz all the ones I dream about

You are the one that makes my love shout

You see, you are the only one I care for, yeah

Your father said it was pneumonia

Your mother said it was stress

But the doctor said you were dead

And I, I say it’s senseless

Every Christmas night for 7 years now

I drink banana daiquiris till I’m blind

As long as I can hear you smilin’, baby

You won’t hear my tears

Another lonely Christmas is mine

Yeah, mine, yeah

Another lonely Christmas is mine…

 

Last night, I spent another lonely Christmas
Darlin', darlin', you should've been there
'Cuz, all the ones I dream about
You are the one that makes my love shout
You see, you are the only one I care for

Remember the time we swam naked
In your father's pool?
Boy, he was upset that night
But boy, was that ever cool

Remember that night we played pokeno for money
And you robbed me blind?
Remember how you used to scream so loud
'Cuz, you, you hated that number 9?

Hey, I saw your sister skatin' on the lake
This afternoon
Good heaven, how she's grown
She swoons the boy skaters, she's so tall

But of all your father's children
All your father's children, baby
You know, you are the finest of them all
You are brighter than the northern star

And I, last night, I spent another lonely Christmas
Darlin', darlin', you, you should've been there
You see, of all the ones I dream about
You are the one that makes my love shout
You see, you are the only one I care for, yeah

My mummy used to say, always trust your lover
But now, I guess that only applies to her
'Cuz, baby, you promised me
Baby, you promised me, you'd never leave
Then you died on the 25th day of December, oh, baby

Last night, oh, I spent another lonely, lonely Christmas
Darlin', baby, you, you should've been there, oh, oh
'Cuz all the ones I dream about
You are the one that makes my love shout
You see, you are the only one I care for, yeah

Your father said it was pneumonia
Your mother said it was stress
But the doctor said you were dead
And I, I say it's senseless

Every Christmas night for 7 years now
I drink banana daiquiris till I'm blind
As long as I can hear you smilin', baby

You won't hear my tears
Another lonely Christmas is mine
Yeah, mine, yeah
Another lonely Christmas is mine

Last night, yeah, I spent another lonely, lonely Christmas
Darlin', darlin', you should've been there, yeah
'Cuz all the ones I dream about
You are the one that makes my love shout
You see, you are the only one one care for
