Tears For Christmas

This song appeared on the 2005 Xmas Single. Todd K and I recorded it in our home studio. I think I wrote it just before we recorded it. It’s a personal favorite.

On December 5, 2010, Emelyne and I recorded a new version of “Tears For Christmas.”

I made a music video to accompany the song:

This is a super rough mix from a cassette from the 2005 Christmas Single.

Joined by David Dewese for New Faces night at the Basement in Nashville, TN on 29 December 2009.

Here’s a video of me playing the song in early December 2008.

Lyrics

Give me a picture frame
Engraved with your name
Anything to hang
Cause hanging round is

All I wanna do
As long as it’s with you
Baby, let me prove,
I’ll be your something

Cause I don’t want any tears for Christmas this year
I don’t want any tears for Christmas this year
I’ve had enough, I’ve had enough of screwing up everything
And I don’t want any tears for Christmas this year

Give me a pink Swatch watch
One that’ll match my socks
Anything to clock
The time til I find you

Give me anything
Or give me nothing
As long as you’re waiting
When I come home tonight

Is this your idea
Of spreading Christmas cheer?
If it is, I wish you’d stop.
Cause I’m still in pain
From all your reindeer games
Babe, you know, I’m about to drop.
