Xmas Day
Clint Lowery Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

One step in the dark
Touch her hand just to see
If she's all alone again
Still she hasn't seen sun
But I promise you now when she wakes
There will be none
Don't know how she gets by
Sleeps with a phone on her chest
And a bottle that's totally dry
Forgets the day I was born
But if she saw me right now

She would hold me until we both die

I could be the one who would die to
feel you breathe

I could break into a million pieces
So just run as fast as you can for me
You mean everything

I can't deny her. I'll do whatever
To stop all the bleeding that makes
her world so red
Such a delicate one
She screams so loud that I run to
hide from the sound
And I could be the one who would die
to feel you breathe
But it's too far-gone
And this love must die

I could break into a million pieces
So just run as fast as you can for me
You mean everything

I could break into a million pieces
So just run as fast as you can for me
You mean everything

I could break into a million pieces
So just run as fast as you can for me
You mean everything

I could break into a million pieces




So just run as fast as you can for me
You mean everything

Overall Meaning

Clint Lowery's "Xmas Day" is a poignant ballad about the pain of experiencing unrequited love. The lyrics paint a picture of a woman who is trapped in a cycle of loneliness and desperation, struggling to find solace even on the most joyous day of the year. The singer offers to be the one who holds her and provides comfort, but he also knows that their love is too far gone and must end.


The first verse portrays the woman as someone who is isolated and unhappy, yet still holding onto hope. The singer reaches out to her in the dark, hoping to alleviate her loneliness. However, it is clear that the woman is no stranger to this feeling; she "hasn't seen sun" in quite some time. The second verse reveals that the woman is drowning her sorrows and forgetting important moments, including the singer's birth. He laments the fact that they cannot be together, even though he would do anything to make her happy.


Overall, "Xmas Day" is a heartbreaking portrayal of unrequited love and the despair that can come with it. The singer's desire to comfort the woman he loves is palpable, but ultimately he knows that it is not enough. He wants her to run away from him, to find someone who can truly give her what she deserves.

It’s been a lifetime ago since I saw Clint and Corey play together. Seriously, every bit of 25+ years. All the way back to the Still Rain days. This is so great to see. They sound better than ever.
