I’m staring at a Christmas tree whose green has all turned brown
Almost every needle's lying dead upon the ground
I can’t seem to bring myself to drag it to the trash
It stands there looking down on me, the ghost of Christmas past

How can you break a heart on Christmas Eve
Pack up all your things, walk out the door and leave
A shattered star, burned out lights, wilted mistletoe
What kind of gift is this to get, to watch your lover go

People say that the holidays are a magic time of year
It sounds to me like witchcraft if it brings a man to tears
She enjoys the parties while I’m a lonely lonely scrooge
Auld Lang Syne brings back the times when I had her to lose
