lyrics

She decorates the house for Christmas
Stringing lights on all the trees
It’s 80 degrees
I don’t know why I have no spirit
It seems I haven’t got a clue
(Maybe I do)
This time of year once stood for something
It once confirmed what I believe
Am I naïve?
We sent the cards out to the family
I wonder if they feel the same way
The same as me

Don’t want to be the grownup
At least for just one day
I’m tired of the responsible way

They don’t know how much it costs
They don’t know how much has been lost
Sometimes I wish I could be selfish again

They never got to meet their Grandma
The way she always tried and tried
And then she died
The joys of winter all went with her
No pumpkins in the fall
No snowmen here at all
We throw our happiness on credit
There is so much we have to pay
It’ll be there ‘til May
I used to not be quite this jaded
Where did all the lightness go?
I miss it so

Don’t want to be the killjoy
Fearing the bottom line
Wish that I could go back in time
Don’t want to be the grownup
At least for just one day
I’m tired of the responsible way

They don’t know how much it costs
They don’t know how much has been lost
Sometimes I wish I could be selfish again
