XMasTime (Sure doesn't feel like it)
2003-12-20 05:30:53 ET



Itís the twentieth of december
A cold rain's fallin down
Kenmore squareís deserted
The college kids have left town
Sure donít feel like christmas time
Sure doesnít feel like christmas time
Sure donít feel like christmas time
Sure doesnít feel like christmas time
to me

Down in Fileneís basement
Pretend Iím shoppin for a friend
This time of year means nothing
If youíve got nothing you can spend
Sure donít feel like christmas time
It sure doesnít feel like christmas time
Sure donít feel like christmas time
It sure doesnít feel like christmas time

Itís the holiday season
And itís freezing cold
No oneíll have me
Iíll have no one to hold
Iíll have no halls to deck
Iíve got nowhere to be
It sure doesnít feel like christmas time to me

Now Iím standing in downtown crossing
And Iíve got nowhere to go
I might sleep here on the sidewalk
Iím tired and cold
The colored lights on the common they
Donít shine so bright for me
Thereís no such thing as peace on earth
Thereís no peace or harmony
Sure donít feel like christmas time
It sure doesnít feel like christmas time
Sure donít feel like christmas time
It sure doesnít feel like christmas time

Itís the holiday season
And itís freezing cold
No oneíll have me
Iíll have no one to hold
Iíll have no halls to deck
Iíve got nowhere to be
It sure doesnít feel like christmas time
To me

tell me a story
sing me a song
do anything
to make me believe
this day has not been so long

kiss my cheek
hold me tight
help me believe
it's gonna be allright.

how can a guitar
shield a man
from his sorrow?

cause a crowd to cheer
as he stands
in front of his fears?

how can harmony
sooth
his weary soul?

or melody bring together
a broken heart
and make it whole?

Have you been feeling down, pushed around
Feeling like everything has been done before
Do I need to understand every word from every man
Or everything from every band
Can I say it's all been done before
Religion, science, similes to metaphors
Can it be that there's nothing new
When there's more ways of looking at the truth
The more things seem to change
The more they just stay the same
But now it's called a different name
Can you say things are new
When you look at magazines
And things you've seen in the news.

I check the time, it's 4:00 a.m.
And I just passed the westside buildings
All the broken glass
As I try to shake the cold away, but anyways,
It's late at night and I'm about to crack
And decide to just walk the tracks
That I just walked yesterday.

but have I been drinking too much tonight?
that I realize it's not enough to fight

I check the time, it's 4:00 a.m.
And I just passed the westside buildings
All the broken glass
As I try to shake the cold away, but anyways,
It's late at night and I'm about to crack
And decide to just walk the tracks
That I just walked yesterday.

but have I been thinking here too much tonight
that I realize I'm not man enough to fight

I check the time, it's 4:00 a.m.
And I just passed the westside buildings
and the fucking glass
As I try to shake the cold away...

Baby, It's Cold Outside
2003-12-05 08:45:08 ET

I really can't stay - Baby it's cold outside
I've got to go away - Baby it's cold outside
This evening has been - Been hoping that you'd drop in
So very nice - I'll hold your hands, they're just like ice
My mother will start to worry - Beautiful, what's your hurry
My father will be pacing the floor - Listen to the fireplace roar
So really I'd better scurry - Beautiful, please don't hurry
well Maybe just a half a drink more - Put some music on while I pour

The neighbors might think - Baby, it's bad out there
Say, what's in this drink - No cabs to be had out there
I wish I knew how - Your eyes are like starlight now
To break this spell - I'll take your hat, your hair looks swell
I ought to say no, no, no, sir - Mind if I move a little closer
At least I'm gonna say that I tried - What's the sense in hurting my pride
I really can't stay - Baby don't hold out
Ahh, but it's cold outside

C'mon baby

I simply must go - Baby, it's cold outside
The answer is no - Ooh baby, it's cold outside
This welcome has been - I'm lucky that you dropped in
So nice and warm -- Look out the window at that storm
My sister will be suspicious - Man, your lips look so delicious
My brother will be there at the door - Waves upon a tropical shore
My maiden aunt's mind is vicious - Gosh your lips look delicious
Well maybe just a half a drink more - Never such a blizzard before

I've got to go home - Oh, baby, you'll freeze out there
Say, lend me your comb - It's up to your knees out there
You've really been grand - Your eyes are like starlight now
But don't you see - How can you do this thing to me
There's bound to be talk tomorrow - Making my life long sorrow
At least there will be plenty implied - If you caught pneumonia and died
I really can't stay - Get over that old out
Ahh, but it's cold outside

Baby it's cold outside
