Track Name: December
Suddenly I begin to fall
Down, alone, hard against my face
And I feel so numb

Everything is falling apart in my hands
It seems everything is breaking down

I had the greatest month of my life
And it was December
I had given up all of my life
In that December

Here it comes, a tidal wave of all
I am for you, spilling across the shore
And it takes me down

Who am I to tell you how I feel?
I like when I can feel as if I'm all alone

I'm having the greatest month of my life
I feel December
I'm giving up every piece of my life
It is December

Oh my God, everything surrounding me is a mess
Why does all this happen to me?
I feel so lost

All the time I try to work things out in my head
But then I never can believe myself
To make things better

I've had the greatest month of my life
And it was December
I gave everything I had in my life
In that December

I hate everything about my life
When I'm in December
I'm having the greatest month of my life
It is December
Track Name: STOP TRYING TO BE GOD (XMAS XMIX)
Justin know what this about
Palm trees, oceans, fresh air, that can break your heart
Stop tryna be God
Stop tryna be God
That's not who you are
Stop tryna be God
That's just not your job
Stop tryna be God

Ride for him every night
Visions of the angel white
Comin' down to shine the light
In the manger, what a sight
All three Wisemen rollin' tight
Bringin' gifts to send their praise on high
Jesus never worked a 9-to-5
Cursed a tree, it withered overnight
Stop tryna be God Almighty
Fuck you, Judas, never leave your people behind
It's never love no matter what you try
'Cause they did not create commandments
When you pray, don't have to make it fancy
'Cause God is far from what you can be
And only He controls the ending

Stop tryna be God
Stop tryna be God
That's not who you are
Stop tryna be God
That's just not your job
Stop tryna be God

Stop tryna be God Almighty
Always say your prayers at night
Turned Himself to bread and wine
He died at 33 but lived a perfect life
If I love Him, I'mma praise Him right
First rule of God: there's only one on high
You can't win a war without him on your side
So never turn your back, all right
'Cause they did not create commandments
When you pray, don't have to make it fancy
'Cause God is far from what you can be
And only He controls the ending
You won't succeed tryna burn Him
Crosses or tombs don't concern Him
Stay out His way 'cause you don't wanna hurt Him
You say you love Him but always desert Him

Stop tryna be God
Stop tryna be God
That's not who you are
Stop tryna be God
That's just not your job
Stop tryna be God

And it was in Jerusalem where Jesus was so killed
For who was he to castigate the Lord or go against his will?
And on that day in Golgotha he was hung upon the cross, oh, no
But from the tomb where he was cast
Upon the third day he came back
Well, He will always be a step ahead of it for me
Well, He will always be a step ahead of it for me
