I’m not sure why modern Christmas originals deal with love and loss so readily. Unfortunately, “Next Christmas” by Earwig (no relation) does nothing to shed light on this quandary.

I got the letter that made your intentions clear
Yeah, it was signed with Love… and Better Luck next year
Stream/download “Next Christmas” from Earwig’s 2010 release, Gibson Under Mountain below. The song and album are free so reward the band for their generosity by supporting their Kickstarter campaign to release their new album, Pause for the Jets.
