Intro Riff: (C D) Em (4x) Verse 1: Em C G It was mid to late December and I hoped it wouldn't last Am Em (C D ) I was feeling pretty haunted by the ghosts of Christmas past; Em C G I kept thinking bout your kisses and the presents that you brought Am Em And how this year I am all alone with what I haven't got Intro Riff (2x) Verse 2: It was mid to late December, and I hoped for the new year; You might say that I had get fed up with all this Christmas cheer I kept thinking bout the way I'd been and reasons you would leave And I knew that it was why I was alone on Christmas eve CHORUS: G B7 And the one thing I would ask for, I'd want if I got my way Em C Is just to have you back here by my side on Christmas day Yea the one thing that I’d ask for, I'd want if I got my way Is just that I don't wanna be alone on Christmas day Intro Riff (4x) Verse 3: It was mid to late December and I hoped that it would end I just couldn't stand the holidays without my special friend They came back “return to sender”, all the Christmas cards I sent Now I'm sitting here just wondering bout where you might have went

And you can drink my blood on the rocks if you just want a taste, you can lap it off my face but you can drink my blood if you want but I hope that you choke and your eyes fill up with smoke right near where my body broke but acting on your best intentions don't you think its condescending, baby? Lately? And you can drink my blood on the rocks if you just want to try, you can lap it off my eyes but you can drink my blood if you want washed up by the waves with no hope of being saved in my shallow water grave but acting on your best intentions don't you think its condescending, baby? Lately? but acting on your best intentions don't you think its condescending, baby? Lately?

Sweet Athena, they’ll have to crack my head open to get you out yea, once you meet her, they’ll have to crack your head open to get her out And you came to me like a mystery and all you left me was your name and all you wanted was your misery and now I only want the same for CHORUS And way back when I first set eyes on you I fell down and broke my teeth but you bent down and helped me pick them up from off the concrete floor beneath oh CHORUS

The Fall The leaves are burning on the trees But soon they will be brown And carried off into the breeze And scattered on the ground And I’m filled with an emptiness And I just cannot say if it is all Inside my head or if its just If its just the fall The summer wind was once a friend But now its grown so cold Is this how my life’s supposed to end Or just how I get old? And I’m filled with an emptiness And I just cannot say if it is all Inside my head or if its just If its just the fall from grace right on my face and/or off the world’s its probably just the fall from grace right on my face or off the world’s its probably just the fall transcribed: 4/27/10 written: spring/summer 2006 revised: fall 2009

Complicit You say there’s nothing we can do and what will be will be But that is so far from the truth, you just choose not to see I know you’d like to blame it all on our society And I know that I’m complicit, you’re just a little more complicit than me You notice other nations can avoid the murder toll Enacting legislation marking thoughtful gun control So when you say the problem can’t be solved by policy Well I know that I’m complicit, you’re just a little more complicit than me And the 2nd Amendment that you’re so quick to recite Allows gun regulation’s within federal oversight So when you try and tell me it will make us all less free Well I know that I’m complicit, you’re just a little more complicit than me So don’t tell me you’re sorry about the routine tragedy Without taking a second to look at your priorities And if there’s nothing we can do and what will be will be Well I know that I’m complicit, you’re just a little more complicit than me you’re just a little more complicit than me you’re just a little more complicit than me
