Christmas in July
by Sufjan Stevens

If I miss my chance, I didn't even try
I'm not one to regret Christmas in July
If my timing is bad, like a fish on a bike,
Would you let me pretend Christmas in July?

I'm not one to admit, I'm not one to fight,
Maybe I was wrong, but maybe I was right
Like when I went to school
Drinking coffee at night,
And I did what I did, now I do what I like

Open the champagne,
Party and dancin'
You'll know that sadness: very expensive
Do what you want to,
Don't even ask us
Wear it without sin,
Family Damascus

Maybe its the snow, in this winter night
And the winter coat,
The one you never liked
But I'll take the sun and I'll take my kite,
Christmas on the beach, Christmas in July
And I love my friends even if they fight Christmas in July
Just to keep them quiet
And I love you too, I love you through the night
But now you're awake, Christmas isn't right

Don't take offenses,
Come to your senses,
Your confidences straddling fences

If I miss my chance, I didn't even try
I'm not one to regret Christmas in July
