Track Name: Hides A Well - Decorations
the decorations stay the same
but we can't say that about the things we decorate
something gets lost every year
and when the end of December comes
it doesn't feel like Christmas
doesn't feel like Christmas anymore

the surprises lack real wow
replaced by stress and debt as we sink into the red
magic's lost every year,
melting on the lawn by salt thrown from passing cars
it doesn't feel like Christmas
doesn't feel like Christmas anymore

when was the last time i couldn't close my eyes on this winter night,
wake up at 6am on the dot, and race down the stairs?
oh, one more time
i want it to feel like Christmas
i want it to feel like Christmas way back when
Track Name: Young Legs - First Day
god is in the flames dancing over the logs
god is in a room of friends in from the cold
listening closely to their own thoughts
seeking answers that we've all sought

the fireplace was empty for most of the year
but in the fallin' snow i find myself here
just for a while, i can share this peace
i listen closer and warm my feet

i can hear the geese in their chevron skein
ice upon the roof and god is talkin' again
mellow crackle on the fire stone
the hiss is a whisper
Track Name: Zack Frank - Winter Weekend
The tree tops change from gold to white
it’s beautiful, but lacking life
It’s okay, oh it’s just fine
so just rest your head against mine

Part of me wants to stay inside, but
the wind calls my name and chills my spine
white flowers come and replace the trees
cold gentle comfort hidden in the breeze

But, remember
the days when we were young
and there were always
more of them to come
but now
we have to wait.
wait for the winter weekend

Standing still, admiring
visioning the bells that ring
a message from the mountain side
the misery in me has died

But, remember
the days when we were young
and there were always
more of them to come
but now
we have to wait.
wait for the winter weekend

But how will I make it there
without time to spare?
I need you, I need you, I need
you, to make it to the winter weekend

Because you remember
the days when we were young
and there were always
more of them to come
but now
we have to wait
wait for the winter weekend
Track Name: straight creep. - All I Want For Christmas Is A New Cellphone
all i want for christmas is a new cell phone.
instant gratification everywhere i go.
i gotta be connect 24-7.
all i want for christmas is a new cell phone.

please don't gift me any clothing or board games
and i haven't read a book since i was in 10th grade.
none of those would satisfy my constant need for stimuli.
all i want for christmas is a new cell phone.

i won't feel the christmas glee 'til i have 4G LTE.
Track Name: Ezra Lowry - True North
The white comes down to cover us up
Under the lights we hang, over them too
Reflections of reflections of the moon

Winter resin burns
Between our year-old beards
You remind me of pine

The longer I look the more you morph
(My mind's a compass at true north)
Shadows from the flame dancing on the walls
(My mind's a compass at true north)
Deeper in the cave, heat beneath the earth
(My mind's a compass at true north)
