Lewis Watson - Christmas Eve Alone This Year Lyrics




I'm in snowy Manhattan, December 22
Always hoped this would happen
But, to tell you the truth
I wish I was in Oxford
With the boys and a beer
But I'm spending Christmas eve alone this year

I've done Times Square at midnight
Went shopping on fifth
I crossed snow in New York off of my bucket list
But it's hard to be happy
When you're home and I'm here
Spending Christmas eve alone this year

And I can't tell if I lied when I said
That this was the best thing for me
Being away from my whole family and friends
To start half of my days with airport delays

And I know that I would've died to be here
If you asked me eight years ago
I'm writing music and selling out shows, I know
But I'd make it all disappear
To spend Christmas this year at home

Back to an empty hotel room
At least I can sleep
Waking up by myself's no fairy tale for me
And I know it could get worse than a music career
But I'm spending Christmas eve alone this year

And I can't tell if I lied when I said
That this was the best thing for me
Being away from my whole family and friends
To start half of my days with airport delays

And I know that I would've died to be here
If you asked me eight years ago
'Cause I'm writing music and selling out shows, I know
But I'd make it all disappear
To spend Christmas this year at home

  26. Oswaldo Cruz

    I could not make this shit up. I've been living in the states with just my parents for 14 years and they left to go back to Mexico Sunday morning and I have no family near by in the states so having to spend the holiday season here without them is kind of sad and I might actually spend it alone. And then you release this lol. It's funny how the world works like that sometimes. Great tune btw as always!

    Lewis Watson

    man, that's awful to hear. sending all of my love, a few handshakes and an ass-whooping on a game of your choice x
