‘It Doesn't Feel Like Christmas' is a sigh of relief for the disaffected and down-hearted this holiday season. Embodying a familiar sway that is at once fresh and uniquely Caruso, it will have you shouting the chorus, and doing whatever the hell you want this festive season.


Honey I don’t know what to say to you
It’s been days and weeks since they left you 
I can’t empathise, I am not used to feeling sad

You won’t laugh at the jokes that I have made for you 
You won’t go out, you’re not in the mood for food
It’s the season of cheer, it’s the best time of the year 

Honey you don’t have to talk, you don’t have to listen
Leave me to my thoughts, I wanna leave the traditions, this year

It doesn’t feel like Christmas
It doesn’t need to be Christmas 
It doesn’t feel like Christmas at all now they’re gone 

Why can’t we postpone a birthday 
We don’t believe in it anyway 
It doesn’t feel like Christmas at all now they’re gone

I am down on my knees and I’m begging you please 
Stop derailing me

Pudding has a best by date that lasts for years
Sales go on till after Christmas and New Years
I will celebrate through tears, I will celebrate my truth in all my years 

It’s these days, it’s these months and years that mean more
Than tradition, a mission not to be scorned
Not a scrooge on my path, only wish to be held, and be loved
