The Last Christmas

Don't cry little one and open your presents this christmas year,
I know you want to wait for daddy, you know I do too
-He won't be coming home for christmas, they took him away
No honey your dad is not a bad man, he did what he thought was right
but they had surveillance footage and said he needed indoctrination
- Please darling open your presents and let me see your smiling face,
let me burn this image in my mind so a can never forget this day,
they'll be coming soon to take me away and give you a new home
- Let me kiss your tears away, I will always love you for ever and ever
- Go ahead angel here's a present from you dad,
they told me you could keep the gifts we give to you,
your dad wanted you to be brave, he wanted so much to see you go up
- Quick baby open them up, there isn't much time left to say I love you
remember, when they come you must be my big strong man,
do not cry and shout, you cannot change what is to be
- Oh! I so glad you like what we got you for christmas my darling,
i will always remember you being happy this day
- Here they are now my lovely boy, promise to be good, Ok?
- Those cuffs are so tight, do they really need to be that painful,
yes, I know christmas is illegal but we did it for our son
- Yes, I'm ready to go, let me hug my boy one last time
good bye angel good bye, smile for me one last time my darling
