'Christmas Isn't Canceled, Just You': A Special Song From Kelly Clarkson
Updated: Jul 1
She is killing me with songs this year that I could have penned and sent directly to narc nation, or one in particular. Ahem. But I won't. Because, unlike last year's tailspin, I'm on my feet, not crying, and certainly not pinning for that abusive, using, and abusing, narcissistic man-child.
This song is the reason for the season, Felicia. And especially if you are brave and healing, which isn't easy but we got this. Lyrics appear below. Look up her performance. You won't regret it.
"Christmas Isn't Canceled, Just You"
Out in the cold Standing where the trees meet the road This used to be our favorite spot in this town
Memories with you and me ruin it now (woah-woah-woah) That's where we met Like a winter dream and I bet I wasn't the first, and I won't be the last Underneath that mistletoe, you've been so bad (woah-woah-woah)
You ruined all my favorite things (all my favorite things) But you won't take Christmas from me
I'll be hanging every light I find in this house Playing Christmas music so loud This year Christmas won't be quite so blue And I'm gonna shout too much and dance in the snow
Drink just enough to let us go Christmas isn't canceled, just you
Lost at first Thinking that I might (I might) be cursed Winter Wonderlands weren't made for one So we've all been told since we were young (woah-woah-woah)
But I'm not feeling incomplete (feeling incomplete) Turns out I don't need a thing underneath my tree
I'll be hanging every light I find in this house Playing Christmas music so loud
This year Christmas won't be quite so blue And I'm gonna shout too much and dance in the snow Drink just enough to let us go Christmas isn't canceled, just you
Without you is still fun (Christmas) and when the New Year comes Don't you worry 'bout me, I'll be alright Baby, by New Year's night, ooh
I'll be ringing in the New Year with all my friends Kissing goodbye to what might've been This year New Year's, I won't be your fool And I bet you see me out wondering what's wrong
Watching me have fun with you gone But New Year's isn't canceled Christmas isn't canceled Just you
Christmas isn't canceled Christmas isn't canceled Christmas isn't canceled, just you
Y'all, I keep being reminded that I'm blessed he's gone and never going to be my problem. Ever. Canceling him earlier this year was my $1,000,000 lifetime gift to myself. I'm going to write, shout, sing AND dance my way through the holidays, with real friends and family. #LoveAtFirstSight #LoveAtFirstNightmare
