Blind Spots' holiday single

lyrics

It’s Christmas time again, the little lights twinkling, baby
I know I should feel festive, but instead I feel so lonely
The holidays are a mistress to my memories, baby
You scraping snow off my windshield
and you swore you’d keep me so warm

So don’t even temp me if you must break your bargain
‘Cause New York nights are too cold, but for you, oh,
I’m leaving California again

Salvation Army bells outside the drugstore, jingling
Charity’s in season, so I toss my coins in, and then I miss you more
I feel as interchangeable as currency, as ornament
but what good do they do me if you don’t see me spend or wear them?

So don’t even temp me if you must break your bargain
‘Cause I would fly 3,000 miles repeating what you said
Walk out on the sunshine and new friends I would have made
Those New York nights are too cold, but for you, oh,
I’m leaving California again

Here the palm trees look silly in the raindrops, grey backdrop
Winters out West are kinder, when back East
the ice storms come cursing off the coast
The reasons I am leaving are simpler than the weather, just as natural:
A throat full of carols is something
but it’s nothing without the name of the one you love

So don’t even temp me if you must break your bargain
‘Cause I would fly 3,000 miles repeating what you said
Walk out on the sunshine and new friends I would have made
Those New York nights are too cold, but for you, oh,
I’m leaving, said I’m leaving California again
