lyrics

She pulls back the sheets, as the morning alarms it's way through the window and reminds her:
It's Christmas Eve, and the orphans got some to love, but she don't.
No one’s on their way to her, she's got nowhere to go.

No one gives a fuck about him.
He’s much better off without them all, so
He calls and says “I’ve done it this time.”
Keep pressure on the wound, is all they say
Keep calm, The ambulance is on it’s way

Her lips are blowing cigarette smoke and
Her hands are cold from holding onto them.
It's killer outside tonight.
Starts her car, and just sits and stares at the moonlight tries forget that they're all
tucked in tight and tomorrow's christmas day; can she wish for the season to change?

It's a waste of breath, but I'll waste it
the only gift i want... just make it through the night.
I'm tired, but I'll sit by the phone
and wait for the call alone.
From the morgue or the hospital.

No one gives a fuck about him.
He’s much better off without them all, so
He calls and says “I’ve done it this time.”
Keep pressure on the wound, is all they say
Keep calm, Keep calm,
He says "oh god, I've really done it this time."
"'Keep pressure on the would' is all they say to me.
Oh god. Happy holidays."
