Holiday Exclusive 1: Brighten & The Maine Contest

Posted by - 04:22 PM on 11/29/07
So the holidays are around the corner and it's time to start waxing nostalgic with indie rock holiday tunes, right? Well AP has some friends with some new yuletide jams to share. Head to Brighten's AP Profile for a holiday ABSOLUTExclusive, a stream of their new song "Merry Christmas Baby," also featuring The Maine. Then, in the spirit of giving, check out our new contest from The Maine to win some of their merch. Another holiday exclusive is coming to town tomorrow!

i refuse!

go into the source, press control+F, type in ".mp3" and copy the link into your address bar if you'd like, though. ;]

i went ahead and wrote down the lyrics, too. any corrections? "robe" doesn't sound right to me, but i can't think of what else it may say.

"merry christmas, baby" - brighten
oh winter, winter couldn't come quicker.
hope she got the card that i sent her,
a free ticket to my doorstep.
i'm a worried man, no, i haven't slept.
i'm writing her and mister santa claus,
hoping he could maybe make some calls,
'cause she's out of this world, bring it back to me.
'cause it's christmas and this is where she needs to be.

merry christmas, baby.
the only thing on my wishlist, maybe.
you would come back home to me,
and we could walk the streets
and they could hear us sing.
merry christmas, darling.
look at us, you can watch us fall
in love again, 'cause it's the season
for us to be together, us to be together again.
together again.

by the fire with some mistletoe,
change quick into my christmas robe.
take a walk and we could watch the lights,
i'm not cold when you're by my side.
the sleigh bells on my roof keep me up all
night, but it doesn't mean a
thing, 'cause you're here to see it,
it just means santa's here for christmas.

merry christmas, baby.
the only thing on my wishlist, maybe.
you would come back home to me,
and we could walk the streets
and they could hear us sing.
merry christmas, darling.
look at us, you can watch us fall
in love again, 'cause it's the season
for us to be together, us to be together again.

we've got some time alone tonight, it's just us two.
it got a little lonely sometimes,
then the rest the year's with you.
we've got some time alone, yeah, tonight it's just us two.
you got to be lonely sometime,
and then the rest the year's with you.

everybody!

merry christmas, baby.
the only thing on my wishlist, maybe.
you would come back home to me,
and we could walk the streets
and they could hear us sing.
merry christmas, darling.
look at us, you can watch us fall
in love again, 'cause it's the season
for us to be together, us to be together again.

[random chatter in background]

(and a merry christmas!)
and a happy new...
year...
