Merry Christmas! Here’s To Many More…

(by Relient K)

I made it through the year and I did not even collapse
Gotta say, “Thank God, for that”
I’m torn between what keeps me whole and what tears me in half
I’ll fall apart or stay intact

With tired eyes I stumble back to bed
I need to realize my sorry life’s not hanging by a thread
At least not yet

So look at me now
Its finally Christmas and I’m home
Head indoors, to get out of this weather
And I don’t know how
But the closest friends I’ve ever known are all inside
Singing together
Singing merry Christmas, here’s to many more…
