Please take down the misletoe
Cause I don't wanna think about that right now
Cause everything I want is miles away
In a snow covered little town
My momma's in the kitchen, worrying about me
Season's greetings, hope you're well
Well I'm doing alright
If you were wondering
Lately I can never tell

I know this shouldn't be a lonely time
But there were Christmases when you were mine

I've been doing fine without you, really
Up until the nights got cold
And everybody's here, except you, baby
Seems like everyone's got someone to hold

But for me it's just a lonely time
Cause there were Christmases when you were mine

Merry Christmas everybody
That'll have to be something I just say this year
I'll bet you got your mom another sweater
And were your cousins late again
When you were putting up the lights this year
Did you notice one less pair of hands

I know this shouldn't be a lonely time
But there were Christmases when I didn't wonder how you are tonight
Cause there were Christmases when you were mine

You were mine

    Christmas would be one of the happiest holidays to spend with your special someone. It is about those christmases when you had someone cuddled beside you and keeping you warm. And you're dying to be with him again this christmas, as you remember those past christmases when you know you have someone. It's a song of misery in the middle of season's greetings.

    Wow! This is such a sad song. But I still love it. It made me cry so much and made me think about when i had a boyfriend and he use to come to my house for christmas each year. Im 23 now and he went to Iraq when he was 22 and died. :( It was so sad. :( I miss him. But still, Merry Christmas, Taylor and Everyone. :)

    Christmases when you were mine... This song simply makes me sink in deep thoughts... The music is so soothing and the lyrics takes me back to the time when i had a special someone almost every xmas and wonder what this xmas yr would be like.
