The Jim Yoshii Pile-Up - Xmas Card by Xiu Xiu
You thought I was confused. I thought it was strange that you had it all figured out.
You had it all wrong. Iâ€™ve been putting you off for months now.
Your letter I never replied to, you raise the alarm. You call the police.
Iâ€™ve been the supporting role, itâ€™s clear. But now Iâ€™m stealing scenes and spilling beer. Itâ€™s just one less Christmas card this year.
I fold my newspaper in half. Itâ€™s better left unread I say, the propagandists hard at play.
I donâ€™t think itâ€™s sad, I donâ€™t think itâ€™s anything that I promised to and I never do.
Iâ€™ve been the supporting role, itâ€™s clear. But now Iâ€™m stealing scenes and spilling beer. Itâ€™s one less Christmas card Iâ€™ll toss this year.
One less Christmas card this year.
So a Merry Goodbye from me to you. And a Happy Cram It the whole year through.
If I ever walk away, will you take me by the hair and remember I said I loved you once?
