Welp… here’s a sad one. I thought the xylophone made it lighter, but I have been informed that this is not the case. :) Anyway, this one goes out to everyone who has lost someone(s) who made the holidays special. Also, it’s dedicated to my siblings.

I hope you dig!

She created magic
For my family
She made the holidays
A great-big, super-fun party
She conjured magic
Out of thin air
Made us all feel special
With every meticulous detail

Now we’re lost without her
We’re lost without her joy
After all these years of mourning
I still can’t find a source
That gives me meaning
To tradition
I only feel sadness and loss
I only feel sadness and loss
For Christmas x3
For Christmas day
Christmas Eve
Christmas time
Christmas memories

I’m happy day to day
I’ve built a life I like
I have great friends and family
I’m in love with my wife, yeah!
But as winter comes
The darkness sets in
And I can’t get out until
The holidays come to an end

Because we’re lost without her
We’re lost without her joy
After all these years of mourning
I still can’t find a source
That gives me meaning
To traditions
I only feel sadness and loss
I only feel sadness and loss
For Christmas x3
For Christmas day
Christmas Eve
Christmas time
Christmas memories

Can I conjure her spirit?
Can I heal and connect?
Can I sift through my sadness?
Suppress my bitterness?
Can I look in my niece’s eyes?
Summon my mother’s soul
And find hope for life?
Find hope for life

(Killer xylophone solo)

Because we’re lost without her
We’re lost without her joy
After all these years of mourning
I still can’t find a source
That gives me meaning
To traditions
I only feel sadness and loss
I only feel sadness and loss
For Christmas x3
For Christmas day
Christmas Eve
Christmas time
Christmas memories
