lyrics

I can feel the first snowflakes falling,
As they land upon broken skin,
On this Christmas Eve,
Will somebody take me home?

My toes are freezing,
It would be a miracle,
Stop me from seizing up,
Down all these alleyways,
It would be a miracle.

I wake myself from this dream,
Like in the movies it’s not my scene,
No one will miss me hiding here,
I’ll be alone another year.

I can smell the smells from the turkeys,
As they drift upon morning winds,
On this Christmas day will somebody take me home?

My gums are bleeding,
It would be a miracle,
Help me stop feeding out of these alleyways,
It would be a miracle.

I wake myself from this dream,
Like in the movies it’s not my scene,
No one will miss me hiding here,
I’ll be alone another year.
