This Christmas card
Is so contrived
A mannequin
Looks more alive

Haven't meant a word
I've written here
The pages full
Not one thing sincere

I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't take it
This is the time to smile I can't fake it
Please allow me the chance now to break it down
It's not snow, it's rain commin' down
And the lights are cool, but they burn out
And I can't pull off the cheer
Not this year
Not this year
Not this year

When I look
Into the mirror
No happiness
Is present here
Not supposed to wine (I forgot)
Not supposed to cry (I forgot)
I try to hold it in
But not this time

I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't take it
This is the time to smile I can't fake it
Please allow me the chance now to break it down
It's not snow, it's rain commin' down
And the lights are cool, but they burn out
And I can't pull off the cheer
Not this year
Not this year
Not this year

Don't know, don't know
If you can hear me
I will, I will
Speak louder for you
No more whispering
Are you listening
I am pleading
I am pleading

I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't take it
This is the time to smile I can't fake it
Please allow me the chance now to break it down
It's not snow, it's rain commin' down
And the lights are cool, but they burn out
And I can't pull off the cheer
Not this year
Not this year

I can't, I can't

It's not snow, it's rain commin' down
And the lights are cool, but they burn out
And I can't pull off the cheer
Not this year
Not this year
Not this year
Not this year
