All profits from sales of "It Almost Seems Like Christmas" will be donated to The Haven For Children.

This charity is near and dear to Pete's and my heart; it's an organization run by amazing people, dependent on donations to continue their work, providing a safe, nurturing home for kids who truly need it.


It’s Christmas, my neighbors told me so
Not so much told, as asked me if I had big plans
Seemed cruel to tell them “no”

Switched out the doormat, stuck some reindeer in the lawn
Cranked up the Nat King Cole, mulled some cider, mulled my future
The cider kind of won

Is it cold outside, or is it just me?
It’s just me, it’s just me

And it almost seems like Christmas
Almost seems like Christmas
It almost seems like Christmas
And it almost seems like
You are almost here

I took the tree down, it just got in the way
Never got around to decorating, I kept waiting
For the perfect day

Is your house empty too, or is it just me?
It’s just me, it’s just me


Heard the carolers’ song, so I followed along
Past all those happy homes
They tried to shake me, they tried to make me
Stop singing words of my own
Fa la la, far from here
Do you hear what I don’t hear?
Ding dong ding, your doorbell rings
We three kings, the choir sings
Rest you merry, bless you merry, must you Mary, I miss you Mary…

Got you a snow globe, that place we went that time
Shake it up, it covers up, Decembers up
The tracks we left behind

Were you happy then, or was it just me?
It’s just me, it’s just me
