christmas are we breaking up? if that’s the case, love i’d like a heads up i gotta know, babe should i buy you a gift? break the bank or cross you off my list? i can see the snow fall makes me think of our first date i can hear the bells call playing out our fate i process the scenery as i look out on the bay there’s so much history to throw it all away and as for love, babe yeah, we got a lot just one more reason that we should give it a shot you’re waiting for my phone call riding out the storm i can see the snow fall babe i’m coming home there’s just one detail that you can’t ignore while we were fighting i didn’t get to the store and it’s too late now even for amazon i was being frugal is that so wrong? you’re waiting up for santa the cookies are in place i can see the snow fall and land upon your face i’ll steal that fat man’s sleigh (if that was something i did) and rip apart his satchel (to pick you out a great gift) could i be a nice girl (would you put down your fist?) and take me off the naughty list

I wake up put my white coat on What a lovely day to give my care the gift of free dental care on Christmas Eve Because of his kindness he was made a saint But I've never seen him bring 'em brand new teeth Now printed on the coke tin bottles (*His belly full of jelly jiggle smile) Gives the children rotten teeth by saccharine drinks Gives the children rotten dreams by saccharine drinks Eliminate your pain sensation Fill with silver fillings restoration Stuff the stockings with Christmas cavities Hang them nicely on the fireplace mantle I feel like I've gone mental.
are you awake? did you see the snow? did you call your mom? did you see your dad? did you tell your friends that you love them? it’s christmas all the stores are closed and on the radio you hear the carols little drummer boy deck the halls jingle bells I'll be home for Christmas did you like the way i wrapped your presents? did you like the stuff i stuffed in your stockings? did you like the things i bought for you? did you like the toys santa brought for you?

"Raw and lo-fi, conceptual album A Leaf Pile Christmas was recorded live in a small cabin in upstate New York over woodstove and wine, and it shows. But there’s something highly endearing and playful about the resulting tunes, with their transformed melodies and arrangements, melodica and harmonica, whistling and bells and electric guitar, and a cacophony of whispery, almost tuneless voices raised in companionable "fa la las" and "feliz navidads". Especially for fans of anti-folk, and not for the faint at heart." - Cover Lay Down
