Taylor Swift – Christmases When You Were Mine lyrics

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

    Taylor swift, she is really unbelieveable. How can you make it? How can you describe my feelings clearly? This song is so good to me and of course so special because I dated him last year at christmas. Unfortunately we broke up after a while. And a new christmas is coming! And he isn't with me. I still love him. He doesn't care me. I want to cry a lot: '(

    This song makes me cry. I'm 13 and I had a boyfriend for 4 months. That's a long time for middle school. He lives right around the corner from me, so he used to come over all the time. It says "everything I want is miles away in a snow covered little town," well he goes to his grandparents house for christmas and they live so far away. I saw him 3 days before Christmas and the day he got back, he came over. I miss him sooo much.
