Xmas songs no. 17: The Used – “Alone This Holiday”

Fo' Shizzle St. NizzleThis is another one from the Kevin & Bean Fo’ Shizzle St. Nizzle compilation from 2002. The Used were just becoming popular at the time, following the release of their debut album earlier that year. The band included “Alone This Holiday” on their Maybe Memories compilation the following year, which was a stopgap to sustain interest until the release of their sophomore album In Love and Death in 2004. “Alone This Holiday” turned up again as the B-side to “I Caught Fire”, the third single from that album. Kelly Osbourne, who was dating frontman Bert McCracken at the time, sings backups on the track.


Maybe light a candle
Don’t say a prayer for me
Feel alone ’cause I’m gone
I left you; make Christmas your own

You throw the thought of us away
You’ll be alone this holiday

Said it’s cold in this town
And there’s snow on the ground
Far from home, not alone
I left you with nothing and that’s what you own

Maybe light a candle
Don’t say a prayer for me
Feel alone
I left you the best time; make Christmas your own
