crumbling away

christmas even and i'm sitting all alone
wondering what you're doing and who you're with tonight
are you laying by the fire or wandering around
thinking about the tragic wrong that only you can right

you've thrown caution to the wind again
prepared to have it hit you in the face
and knowing that the heat will only cause you to burn
you reach out your hand to the flame

for one more chance, another leap of faith
one more lullaby to keep you awake
one more grasp at another love's embrace
to find an empty heart within your hand, crumbling away

chrismas night and you're sitting all alone
wondering what i'm doing and who i'm with tonight
i'm driving down this lonely stretch of cold, forgotten road
with an empty soul to an empty home
