An old song of George Breakfast's, reworked by Lizzie J Taylor.
When he first wrote it back in 80s NYC,a friend on hearing it said, "that's the most miserable song I've ever heard!"

you used to treat me warm and nice
now I’m walking on thin ice
I miss you
this Christmas
I tried to call, I tried to write
all alone on this winter’s night
I miss you
this Christmas

when you’re giving me
the cold shoulder
them icy blues
since we’ve been apart
another Christmas
another year older
and I’m feeling
colder than your heart

lights in every Christmas tree
shining bright but not for me
I’m all alone
thinking about you
there’s nowhere left for me to go
I can hear that cold wind blow
thinking about
Christmas without you

when you’re giving me……

I hear Salvation army bands
I see lovers hand in hand
I turn away
to hide my tears
I know I’m not the only one
the only sad and lonely one
but it feels that way
at this time of year

when you’re giving me……
