December, december
December is the cruelest month
I stand alone by the window
Where the streetlight shines in
And all across the city, rain and wind

December, december
I'll say no prayers in december
In hopes the gods won't find us
Their moods turn dark this time of year
And to lose you now would be too cruel
That's my biggest fear

I stand vigil by your bed
And hold your hand all thru the night
If in our will, we can heal
Then I'll will you thru to the morning light

December, december
The river is black beneath the ice
All living things
Have taken shelter from the night
As if to warn "your soul's in danger,
Take flight"

There's a reason man invented drink
It calms the mind, it quiets the soul
It takes the edge off of the night
From being so long and cold

Oh, holy night
And all the stars are singing
I sing to myself to keep the voices in my head from ringing

December, december
I'll sleep long hours in december
Until the turn into januarys light
And then I'll say a prayer for the fallen
Who could not bear the weight of december's night

December, december
December is the cruelest month
