1.
i’m a snowman, a snowman / i’m cold when i’m with you / and a snowman can never hold your hand / ’cause snowmen just won’t do / although i’d like to be the one now / i feel like i am just no fun now / well, maybe next year will be better / i’ll bet it’s not / let’s not forget the girl who made me / the only one who now can save me /she went away, i’m getting colder / ’cause she forgot
2.
Holidays 03:10
sure i love some snow on christmas day / but there has got to be a way for me to spend some time / some place where the sun still shines / i know i will miss the cold one day / already sick of it / i need to get away it’s true / i wonder what i have to do / to make it so / i spend a couple months away from here / i’m trying to replace my fear with confidence / believe that it will happen if i try / it’s time for me to say goodbye
3.
Easy Days 03:07
we’re feeling pressure / and it’s the time of year again / so many possibilities / we could go back to our home town / but your mom’s living out here now / and my dad is halfway in between / but if you can’t get the time off work / how will we make it home / now christmas is a weighted word / those easy days are gone / who will we spend time with / and who won’t we see this trip / is it up to us to decide / what if the weather’s bad / and it spoils all our plans / the cold and snow combined keep us inside
4.
let me see you again / it’s the only thing that i ask for this year / just try remembering when / you had everything all you wanted was here / and it’s too cold so come back to me dear / i want to see you in your winter coat / i want to hold you tonight / i’ll make a fire so we’ll both stay warm / you’d look amazing in that light / let me see you again / it’s the only thing that i ask for this year / i don’t care where you’ve been / and why you left it has never been clear / so come on back for some holiday cheer

credits

released December 25, 2009

bears are craig ramsey and charlie mcarthur

we recorded these songs at home in cleveland, ohio and chicago, illinois
mixed by craig & mastered by dan pelletier

leia hohenfeld helped a lot: “I’m a snowman” (vocals, flute), “holidays” (flute), “let me see you again” (flute), “merry christmas have a happy new year” (vocals, flute).

the digital-only track “merry christmas have a happy new year” was written by christian doble. the other digital-only track, “merry christmas to me,” was something we originally released as a limited CD-r single in 2006.
