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

Home for Christmas

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

Lyrics:

(Intro)
I'm on the way home for Christmas time
And on my way I feel just fine
But I know it won't last 'cause it never does
And it's worse as I reflect on the year that was

(Verse 1)
My brother got married with a kid on the way
I'm still getting ghosted after second dates
My sister celebrates yet another pay raise
I'm still making it work on minimum wage
My cousin graduated at the top of her class
It was a long time ago, but I barely passed
And someone's finally managed to buy their own pad
I'm still paying rent to my best friend's dad

(Chorus)
Black sheep, Christmas Day
I've got nothing to say
I got nowhere near
Where I planned to go this year

(Verse 2)
I love them all and their success makes me glad
But my life in comparison makes me sad
'Cause I want to settle down and have kids someday
I don't want to have to budget for every payday
I wish I'd studied harder and not nearly dropped out
And I can't live forever in my best friend's house
And I shouldn't compare but it's hard not to
When Grandpa turns to me and asks "what about you?"

(Chorus)
Black sheep, Christmas Day
I've got nothing to say
I got nowhere near
Where I planned to go this year

(Verse 3)
I know as they show off that I'm not that competitive
The competition feels just really repetitive
I want them all to stop, because I can't join in and play
But then I'll be the guy who ruined Christmas Day
For all that I've said, my life's still fulfilled
By good friends and hobbies and the whisky we distilled
And I'm so very grateful for all that I've got
But Christmas really highlights what I have not

(Chorus)
Black sheep, Christmas Day
I've got nothing to say
I got nowhere near
Where I planned to go this year

(Chorus)
Black sheep, Christmas Day
I've got nothing to say
I got nowhere near
Where I planned to go this year
[Exit]
