lyrics

I called her on the phone to tell her that i’m coming home and that i miss her
Every year it’s still the same, she called me by my brother’s name
And told me that she barely sees my face
She asked how i was doing and how everything’s going in Ohio
I live here in Ky, remember when you told me you’d stop by?

I never will forget that feeling when my mother said goodbye
How can i forgive her?
She never read my letter but told me there were plenty of mistakes
The dead of winter, return to sender, but i’ll still be coming home for the holidays

I dress as santa every year to pass out presents to my cousins
When i take off the beard, they suddenly don’t recognize my face
I told you last year, i quit playing hockey when i was 18
Don’t you remember?

I never will forget that feeling when my mother said goodbye
How can i forgive her?
She never read my letter but told me there were plenty of mistakes
The dead of winter, return to sender, and i’ll still be coming home for the holidays

Never mind, i’ll be fine
At least it’s christmas
Everyone is happy
Or at least pretending
I just wanna go home and stop living this lie we call "family"
You don’t call me
You don’t know me
Just stop acting
