Aly & AJ - Not This Year Lyrics




This Christmas card is contrived
A mannequin looks more alive
Haven't meant a word I've written here
The page is full not one thing sincere

I can't, I can't
I can't, I can't take it
This is the time to smile,
I can't fake it
Please allow me the chance now
To break it down

It's not snow, It's rain coming down
And the lights are cool,
But they burn out
And I can't pull off the cheer
Not this year
Not this year
Not this year

When I look into the mirror
No happiness is present here
Not supposed to whine,
Not supposed to cry
Try to hold it in, but not this time

I can't, I can't
I can't, I can't take it
This is the time to smile,
I can't fake it
Please allow me the chance now
To break it down

It's not snow, It's rain coming down
And the lights are cool,
But they burn out
And I can't pull off the cheer
Not this year
Not this year
Not this year

Don't know, don't know
If you can hear me
I will, I will
Speak louder for you

No more whispering
Are you listening
I am pleading
I am pleading

I can't, I can't
I can't, I can't take it
This is the time to smile,
I can't fake it
Please allow me the chance now
To break it down

It's not snow, It's rain coming down
And the lights are cool,
But they burn out
And I can't pull off the cheer
Not this year
Not this year
Not this year
I can't, I can't

It's not snow, It's rain coming down
And the lights are cool,
But they burn out
And I can't pull off the cheer
Not this year
Not this year
Not this year
Not this year

  2. hardesttwihardfan

    it's about their grandma that died around Christmas, & so they wrote & dedicated it for her. it explains in their Christmas album. I also lost my grandpa on Christmas Eve in 2007..

  3. Cassyboo8

    My Grandpa died January 17th of 2005, and my grandma died December 29th, 2005. It's still hard, even now, not having two of the most important people here with me, celebrating the holiday's with my mom and I. It never really gets easier.
