Christmas on Spring Island (original song)

December's here and still feels like the fall.

The weather's smart. He denies it all.

No matter where I go, there isn't any snow

and these trains and planes can't take me far enough away.

 

So Santa I don't want any toys

or phone calls from any other boys.

The one I love has left me and chosen to pretend

so put me on Spring Island once again...

 

We're forced now to reflect on things that have been.

Oh December, how I thought you were my friend.

And just when the road, i thought, became one too

all the places that I run lead me to you.

 

So Santa I don't want any toys

or phone calls from any other boys.

The one I love has left me and chosen to pretend

so put me on Spring Island once again...

 

And what a stupid thought to try to live a normal life...

be a wife, a mom, or hope you'd come around...

but there's a small amount of time that love was on my side

and for once I finally want what we have found.

 

So Santa I don't want any toys

or phone calls from any other boys.

The one I love has left me and chosen to pretend

so put me on Spring Island once again...
