December 24
Music and Lyrics by Seth Adam & Gerry Giaimo

It's cold, dark and empty
Not much in the sky
I'm just hanging up the phone
I just said goodbye
Drive to the party
just to pretend
I'll stay with a face that shows
there's nothing to mend

Sometimes takes whiskey
Sometimes takes more
Always on December 24

A smile's worth of fiction
the good actor plays
Raising a glass for me
to this masquerade
Oh yes, the kids are fine
Spoke with them today
Won't see them tomorrow
for this holiday

Here's to the season
A memory at best
Those times to remember
pretend to forget
