lyrics

Wake up in the morning of December 25
Struggling to remember what you did the previous night
How did you get here
And who helped you to your bed
And left you with that ringing in your head

Soon the memories play back to you like a show
Scenes of people saying 'just one more before you go'
If you'd just listened to the noises deep inside
Maybe then you wouldn't have crossed the line

It's not one more for the season
Or one more for the road
You're living with this feeling
You won't get a hold of
Dont look for no saviour
To medicate your pain
Just promise yourself
You won't do it again

Shuffling back to the stairs
When a voice calls you out
Your mother and a dinner for seven
She's tired, been up fixing everything right
Won't you give her a helping hand

Your head is pounding
But she will proceed
Telling you of her woes through the years
While every cadence in her voice
Any movement you make
Is bringing you closer to tears

Now your nieces and nephews
Are up in excite
Picking now to ask every question
Don't reach out to their makers
They're your deal today
But theirs 364 of the year

Come 6 in the evening it starts to subside
And you feel yourself get in the spirit
But just before your raising that wine
Remember what you just survived

It's not one more for the season
Or one more for the road
You're living with this feeling
You won't get a hold of
Dont look for no saviour
They;re busy my friend
Just promise yourself
Just promise yourself
Just promise yourself

But you'll do it again
