Intro: Play riff 2x

Verse 1:
It's Christmas so we'll stop 
     Em                                            F
It's on with the lights to warm the dark, it can cloak elsewhere
       Am              F             C
As the rot stops for today, let the rot stop just for one day
      Em                                       F
Only good red eyes, red suits, and faces will radiate
        Am                  F            C
And the cold will hide its face, now the cold is turned away
We can be best friends with the people we hate 
             F                         Am             F
'Cause we've all got blood, and it's warmer than you think
Yeah it is warm and it is thick
   Em                                                   F
We all breathe out clouds we're built to give at least once each year
            Am                  F
Now that's better than never I guess
And life might never get better than this
         Em                                                 F
With the perfect excuse for out natures to change and wear shiny clothes
          Am                 F
Oh it's Christmas so press pause and we'll go

Interlude 1: Play riff 2x (with some ooh’ing and ahh’ing)

Verse 2: (same structure as Verse 1)
Oh it's Christmas so we'll stop 
'Cause the wine on our breath puts the love in our tongues
So forget the names 
I called you on Christmas Eve
In fact forget the entire year
Don't reflect just pretend and you won't feel scared
You won't feel a thing 'cause it's all been tucked away
And once you're tucked in bed
You'll hold on to the day for the last few seconds
Your gray dull face is protected from the wind
And I'll protect you I promise I will
And the rest of our lives will be just like Christmas with fewer toys
You're a good girl I'm a good boy, so I thought

Interlude 2: same as Interlude 1

Verse 3: (same structure as Verse 1)
Oh it's Christmas so we stopped 
Were it not for the tick of the clock
And the spinning of the Earth in space
We could always be this way
And as we sleep at the fall of the day 
In the room next door the tree lights brighten the rodents' eyes
And catches a glimpse of the dust beginning to rise

Outro: (repeat 2x)
C       Em                                    F  Am  F  C
    The next day life went back to its past self
    Em                                    F   Am  F  C
The next day life went back to its past self
