A song about one of the realities of Christmas for a lot of people. It's not always the family view we see on tv or the movies and it can be very difficult. This is a song for those people. Please keep them in mind this season.


There's a home that I've known
It's so far from me now
I listen to the radio
Playing Christmas songs
Deck the halls
A wonderful life
We wondered for how long
A kiss good night
A wish and a prayer
For love with all our might

Oh but now
that I'm older
It's colder
it's not right
it's not about me
I've got Christmas
and a glass of whiskey

There's a place in my mind
what a family should look like
The table is full
The house is laughing
Someone say our grace
A beautiful place
The tree is bright
With boxes and a starlight

Oh but now
that I'm older
I'm colder
it's not right
it's not about me
I've got Christmas
and a glass of whiskey

So alone
I wish my momma would call me
This bar is old
I wish my father knew me
So so long
For days so long behind me
I've got to know
Just how much you miss me

Cause now
That I'm older
So much colder
And it's not right
It's not about me
I've got Christmas
And a glass of whiskey
