about

The Lulls in Traffic give you a moody holiday song of longing, infused with childhood nostalgia.

lyrics

Well here comes my Santa on his way.
I know that he has something beautiful for me somewhere on his sleigh.
I was pretty good this year, at least I tried
To get the one thing that I knew all year, the one thing I desired.

So won't you lend your ear
'Cause I've never known a holiday without you here.
Won't you come my way
'Cause silver bells are ringing only grey.

Overseas, wish that I could overreach
Reach over, noticeably colder.
Cling to moments you were holding me close.
Think about the things I miss most, your faces appear.
If only I could see them again,
Memories bleeding so thin
December was never so effortless when I was home,
Sitting by the tree,
you sitting by me too smitten to see the disease.
Now see what I've grown into.
Used to hear your voices from my room,
let the sound consume my tonal view.
Now I'm hanging by a thread
and the line is giving out.
Want to say I need you now
but the words won't come out.
So I flirt with this doubt
and sit alone in the snow.
Let it bury me alive if I can't be carried home.
It isn't that I'm used to love.
I've used my love been bruised and scuffed.
Now being back with you can't come soon enough.

So won't you lend your ear
'Cause I've never known a holiday without you here.
Won't you come my way
'Cause silver bells are ringing only grey.
