Careful what you say, this time of year tends to weaken me.

And have a little decency and let me cry in peace.

But there’s a place where I erase the challenges I’ve been through

where I know every corner, every streetname all by heart.

I have people close to me who never will desert me.

Who remind me frequently what I was like as a child.

I don’t know what my future holds or who I’ll choose to love me

But I can tell you where I’m from and who loved me to life.

I wanna go home for Christmas, let me go home this year.

This song speaks to me on so many levels. Christmas is always difficult for me. I either try really hard to replicate what I have at home, or I give up and don’t try at all. I always feel out of place – as if I am different around christmas time. I try to sing and put up decorations, I try to take photos and make stuff with the kids. I bake and I prep and I plan – but it is never the same.

I will always want to go home for Christmas. And this song will always make me cry – whatever season.

(I am also sure that I posted it last year…:P)
