lyrics

Sometimes I wish I could forget
Maybe for a day I could just pretend
That nothing is really wrong
That nothing is really wrong
But now it’s worse than ever
It’s worse than ever

I’m sad the snow has hardly fallen yet
I know that many hope this is as cold as it is going to get
But there is so much more to worry about
There is so much more to worry about
We can’t lead such privileged lives
If we ever hope to survive

The forests are dying but it smells like olden times in the living room
The water is drying and the snow is toxic
But it’s pretty in christmas lights
It’s so pretty in christmas lights
It’s a sad holiday
It’s a sad holiday

Before we can start to mend it
We must all come to accept it
That we’re all helping to end it

Do we even understand what we are losing anymore?
If you refuse to budge then what’s the use of my fighting for?
What will Christmas look like in two years or more?

I wish that we could all just make a vow
To stop being such fools and protect what’s still around
But I know we don’t all feel the same
I know that some don’t feel it’s time for a change
But why can’t they just open up their eyes
It’s time to be fighting for our lives

I wonder what’s to become
of this world that I have come to love
I wonder what’s to become
of this world that I have come to love
