lyrics

It's 3pm,
The day is dying,
It's losing light,
I give up trying,
To put you out of my mind,
You take a walk down,
Along the river
The christmas lights shine,
He feels you shiver,
And he holds you close now,
Close like i never knew how.

Merry Christmas,
Here from the bitter end,
Why am I still trying to pretend,
With this Christmas card I won't send,
Written, re-written again.

It's 4:15,
The day can't hold on,
The night draws in,
And it's a cold one.
The same cold that you feel now.
I talk a walk down,
To the post office,
I am a small town,
Near your metropolis.

Merry Christmas,
Here from the bitter end,
Why am I still trying to pretend,
With this Christmas card I won't send,
Written re-written again.
So I just sing this song for you,
To myself now.

No one's winning this,
And no one really asked for it,
So now the question is,
How do we move past it?

Merry Christmas,
Here from the bitter end,
Well you make your mind up,
And I'll make mistakes again,
That's one last Christmas card to send.

Merry Christmas,
Here from the bitter end,
Why am I still trying to pretend,
With this Christmas card I won't send,
Written re-written again.
So I just sing this song for you,
To myself now.
