Two Fridays ago, Jessica Dobson opened up Deep Sea Diver's sold-out Neumos show with a guitar-looping version of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." She's continuing on with the holiday vibes with an original Christmas song of her own, a melancholy ditty called "It's Christmas Time (And I'm Still Alive)." The song comes from the perspective a terminally ill child who's celebrating his last Christmas. It's tearjerking stuff (read the lyrics after the jump), but musically, the song does a beautiful job of highlighting Dobson's upper vocal register.

IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME (and I'm still alive)

All my friends are waiting with a candle by my feet

They bring me so much comfort as I fall fast asleep

Everybody's picture tucked beneath the sheets

Its christmas time and i am still alive

I know baby Jesus shed a tear for me

Never was I good enough but thats not what he sees

I'm a child of God, precious in His sight

Its christmas time and i am still alive

Outside of my window is a field of evergreens

Lighting up the skyline, the last one I will see

Maybe I have six weeks, maybe five at best

Its christmas time and i am still alive

Snowflakes climbing through the window

Angels singing, in a chorus OHHH

I know baby Jesus shed a tear for me

Never was I good enough but thats not what he sees

I'm a child of God, soon to be by his side

Its christmas time and i am still alive
