This one goes out to everyone who celebrated two Christmases because their parents got divorced.🎄 It’s called “Twice The Gifts (Half The Love)”.🎁🎁💔


Wide awake, snowflakes falling out over the moon
Court ordered Christmas is scheduled for morning & noon
Every year, disappear in tinsel & tv lights
Brothers & sisters pretending they don’t hear the fights

Friends say I’m lucky
I wish I were you
Pictures of families
That never seemed true
Holy & holly
I’m never part of
Yeah it’s twice the gifts
But half the love

Now & then remember when we weren’t so complicated
Before it was lonely, tired & hated
Heard her play skate away down a river
Goddamn December it feels like forever

When I get older
It’s all gonna change
No shopping, no parties
It’ll be any other day
We’ll make some new memories
We’ll always dream of
It’ll be half the gifts
But twice the love
