Christmas Pain in Christmas Town

from The Chowder Man by Hot Dad

lyrics

Woke up Christmas morning, I could feel it in my bones
He was coming here, he would enter my home
Climbing down the chimney, bag of secrets on his back
You could sense my pain, but you were stronger than that

I can’t, I can’t wait to open all my presents
I can, I can change, I’ll be the one you needed
Please, honey, you should stay, we’ll work it out together
Santa’s on his way, he’ll make it better

Coulda been good ones, coulda been bad ones
Coulda been only ones
Shoulda been bolder, shoulda been brave enough
Shoulda been there when you needed me the most

I wish that you were here, Christmas time in my home
But Santa Clause is crying and the Chowder Man knows
I’m drownin’ in the sorrow, lost presents and love
There’s Christmas pain in Christmas Town

Bottle in my hand, try to drink it away
The snow is falling down, I’m so cold and afraid
Baby, I need you in my life, but you ain’t comin’ ‘round
There’s Christmas pain in Christmas Town

Felt just like a present, empty box, wrapped up with bow
Open me up, baby, you’ve got nothing to show
Reindeer in the sky, a sleigh with magic in the back
I only let you down, I see a problem with that

If I, if I could, I would slide down your chimney
I would, I would bring tenderness and compassion
I dream of your face, most nights during my slumber
Please let the Chowder Man make it right

Coulda been good ones, coulda been bad ones
Coulda been only ones
Shoulda been bolder, Shoulda been brave enough
Shoulda been there when you needed me the most

Coulda been good ones, coulda been bad ones
Coulda been only ones
Shoulda been bolder, Shoulda been brave enough
Shoulda been there for you, baby
To hold you tight

I want you coming here, Christmas time in my home
But Santa Clause is crying and the Chowder Man knows
I’m drownin’ in the sorrow, lost presents and love
There’s Christmas pain in Christmas Town

Bottle in my hand, try to drink it away
The snow is falling down, I’m so cold and afraid
Baby, I need you in my life, but you ain’t comin’ around
There’s Christmas pain in Christmas Town

Under mistletoe I dream
Two pairs of lips, just her and me
But she ain’t there so we ain’t gonna kiss
In Christmas Town

I wish that you were here, Christmas time in my home
But Santa Clause is crying and the Chowder Man knows
I’m drownin’ in the sorrow, lost presents and love
There’s Christmas pain in Christmas Town

Bottle in my hand, try to drink it away
The snow is falling down, I’m so cold and afraid
Baby, I need you in my life, but you ain’t comin’ ‘round
There’s Christmas pain in Christmas Town

There’s Christmas pain in Christmas Town
There’s Christmas pain in Christmas Town
There’s Christmas pain in Christmas Town
There’s Christmas pain in Christmas Town

There’s Christmas pain in Christmas Town
