Story Behind the Song

This Christmas song imagines a mid-life crisis father who misses his son and wants him to come home for Christmas.

Lyrics

Somewhere between the town and the country
some time before the end of the year
Someone looks out, caught in the mirror, staring at me

I turned your room into an office
I put an old Stairmaster there
Now it's winter: I'll watch the snow right from my chair

Son, you should come home for Christmas
Your mother's been asking for you
She's tired of looking in my eyes for you--I am too.

I found a bar on my way home from work
There's a bartender there who calls out my name
"Hey Ho, Charlie!" -- the more things change, the more they're the same

Time for the tree to come up from the basement
It's so much easier this way
Every tree can't be replanted; everything goes away

Son, you should come home for Christmas
Your mother's been asking for you
She's tired of looking in my eyes for you--I am too.
