'Hard Holidays' is a soft and sad track written in the late hours of Thanksgiving night in 2006 on my parents out of tune piano. It was one of the first songs written that departed from jonAthan's primarily acoustic based recording and began to experiment with electronic music. It is also one of the only earlier JAP tracks that made it onto the EP and actually retains a lot of the initial sounds from the first demo.


It's the last of November, the first of December
and I almost lost it today.
With you not here and this holiday cheer
it's shapin to be a hard holiday
Yeah it's a hard, yeah these hard
hard holidays.

And I keep dreaming like the movies and coloring TV
trying to make things beautiful so by new years you'll see
I'm okay and you should stay
I'm trying not to be alone on this sad hard holiday.

I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry
and I'm, and I'm, so sorry.

Silent Night
Holy Night
All is calm
All is bright
Round yon virgins mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace.
