Stacey: Last Christmas

Last Christmas
I carried you near my heart
But the very next year you went away.
This year
Theres nothing but tears
We’re missing someone special.

Once bitten and twice shy
I think of another
But you still fill my mind.
Tell me why
I no longer recognise me?
what has happened this year,
It doesn't surprise me
(Merry Christmas)

I wrapped it up and sent it
For the angels to tell you "I love you,”
I meant it
Now I know what a mother is
I’d give anything to kiss you now
I know you'd heal me again.

Empty arms,
Consumed by my tired mind.
I'm hiding from the truth
And pain of the ice.
My god I thought you were coming home this year.
Me? I guess I have lost all innocence.

A face of pain with a fire of anger in my heart.
I try to keep it under cover but it tears me apart.
Now my heart has mothers love, you'll never be forgotten I promise.

Maybe next year I'll bring home someone
I'll bring home someone special.
