Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Wake Me Up When December Ends

This song was created for Game of Bands round 183 : "Anti-Holiday Songs"

Lyrics:

The fireplace is dying down as the cold starts to seep
The snow is falling once again, bringing back memories
I close my eyes to get away from it catching up to me
Can't stand to bear the thought of what happened last year

You clutched at your chest
You fell to your knees
And all I could do was stand there
I should've done something
Anything
But now I'm left so much worse for wear
This is just what happens round this time of year
I lock up and try to live with all my fears
Just keep me away
From the holidays

You'd think maybe New Years' would be different
That I could learn to look past Christmas
That I could accept that sometimes life chooses
To deal you a bad hand

But see that there's much more (but see that there's much more)
Since way before I got to this part
I'd just had enough (had enough)
I tried giving up (giving up)
Before the new year had come

I stood on my toes
Was ready to go
But all I could do was stand there
I should've done something
Anything
But now I'm left so much worse for wear
This is just what happens round this time of year
I lock up and try to live with all my fears
Just keep me away
From the holidays

Please don't reach out
This hell is my own now
I'm just a bad luck charm
So keep me where I can't do harm

You clutched at your chest (I stood on my toes)
You fell to your knees (Was ready to go)
And all I could do was stand there
I should've done something
Anything
But now I'm left so much worse for wear
This is just what happens round this time of year
I lock up and try to live with all my fears
Just keep me away
From the holidays

This is just what happens round this time of year
I lock up and try to live with all my fears
Just keep me away from the holidays
