Play the song ‘Lonely This Christmas’ by Mud

Lyrics:-

Trying to imagine a house that’s not a home
Trying to imagine a Christmas all alone
That’s where I’ll be since you left me
My tears could melt the snow
What can I do without you?
I’ve got no place, no place to go.

It’ll be lonely this Christmas
Without you to hold
It’ll be lonely this Christmas
Lonely and cold
It’ll be cold, so cold, without you to hold
This Christmas.

Each time I remember the day you went away
And how I would listen to the things you had to say
I just break down as I look around
And the only things I see
Are emptiness and loneliness
And an unlit Christmas tree

It’ll be lonely this Christmas
Without you to hold
It’ll be lonely this Christmas
Lonely and cold
It’ll be cold, so cold, without you to hold
This Christmas.

You remember last year when you and I were here
We never thought there’d be an end
And I remember looking at you then
And I remember thinking that Christmas
Must have been made for us
Cos darling, this is the time of year
That you really need love
When it means so very, very much
(It ll be lonely this Christmas)
So it’ll be lonely this Christmas
(without you to hold) without you to hold
(It’ll be lonely this Christmas)
It’ll be so very lonely this Christmas
(Lonely and cold) lonely and cold

It’ll be lonely this Christmas
Without you to hold
It’ll be lonely this Christmas
Lonely and cold
It’ll be cold, so cold, without you to hold
This Christmas.

Merry Christmas, darling – wherever you are.
