about

An original Christmas track and also the band Pender's 1st recorded release! I suppose it's about hope, consumerism, depression, and frendship. It's for you. But also part of the Camp Daze Christmas 2016 compilation.

lyrics

people walk faster this time of year

i think they’re scared that they’ll miss it

sixty seconds of peace & magic


everyone does their best

to get their one happy moment

i feel magic for just a second


message i wrote in the snow

wanted to tell you you’re not alone

maybe it’s just me who feels it though



take a deep breath

you’re not dying yet

you’re sitting on the couch in a parka

waiting for the world to end


take a better look

the world is all dressed up for you

there are lovely people all around

you think they don’t care but they do


so what can i get out of it

a day off work & a chit-chat?

reading all about baby jesus in a pamphlet


every face to the ground

with salt in & salt out

feeling safe but never sound


we like to worship

all the things that we can get

melted candy squished down in my pocket


every face to the ground (looking for the hope that i've found)

with salt in & salt out

feeling safe but never sound

take a deep breath

you’re not dying yet

you’re sitting on the couch in a parka

waiting for the world to end


take a better look

the world is all dressed up for you

there are lovely people all around

you think they don’t care but they do





do we need a little christmas

do we need to make a big fuss

god’s on tv in a red suit

if we need someone to die for us

i'm not so sure it should be Santa Claus

not sure i'd pick anyone at all

and if I could take it all back I could

all the nasty words and rolling in the dirt

things a baby in a manger can't deserve

and if we need a little Christmas

we'll also need a bigger love than what we've got

i'm gonna need to learn to love you a lot
