lyrics

I tried for years to make you believe me
That the canyons aren’t that grand
You would tell me without hesitation
That they were formed by God’s own hand

Some birds fly south for the winter
Other birds tend to stick around
It’s like Christmas in a college town

You asked me why I never called you
If I ever meant to try to change your mind
If doing math involving time zones
And picking up a cell phone made me disinclined

Trying to change your mind, dear
It’s like I’m trying to turn the Titanic around
It's like Christmas in a college town

You’re bright and thin like apple skin
But there’s something seedy at your core
Maps don’t help when maps are life-sized
Or when the ship has capsized to the bottom of the ocean floor

Never plan alone time
Be happy when it rolls around
You’re like Christmas in a college town

You’re like Christmas in a college town
You’re like Christmas with no one around
