My White Elephant (Divided By Friday)

The Trees are up The lights are glowing The gifts are wrapped And now it's finally snowing But all the mistletoe and cheer, They only serve to make it clear That I'm a widower tonight Because the former you has died And now there's nothing left to beat inside my chest And all I feel is sadness at my best, so This Christmas all I want is my heart back It's so hard having to live when I know that I never quite had yours to call my own And every heart is light (I hear you're happy) But mine is missing (I always knew it would be) And now I'm forced to fight (Or at least to try) Through all the reminiscing (Of years gone by) Remember those starry nights? The angels etched in white.. All those gifts we'd tear into.. Well, this will be the first one Spent without you, so This Christmas all I want is my heart back It's so hard having to live when I know that I never quite had yours to call my own So if it's all right with you Then what I'd like to do Is just reclaim What became An empty lump of coal To match the empty soul I knew you'd give to me, The day you'd opt to leave But if you don't miss me Then it should be easy It's a shame how quickly You forgot what we could be This Christmas all I want is my heart back It's so hard having to live when I know that I never quite had yours to call my own
