About "For the Holidays" the singer said that "while the melodies are, for the most part happy & catchy, there is a nostalgic gospel feel to it that highlights its sorrow, desperation & melancholy."

Guerin added "it's a hopeful song, cause I expect my Christmas wish to come true, so does everybody else, so it's very relatable."

lyrics

I ain’t gonna lie
I don’t like the way things are
But I won’t just sit & I cry, I won’t

Christmas time’s a time
Made for us to celebrate
The love in the winter air, so I’m

Gonna take a risk
Wear my heart upon my sleeve
I’mma try to make a date with you

I know what I said
“You insist you loose the game”
But Santa’s just too busy now

He won’t take my call
There’s no signal on the North Pole

Here’s the deal babe
Let’s be an item from the 1st
To the 31st
Share some love & parties
The gifts & the joy
Then, if we like it
We can take it to bigger proportions
In January

I never gave you up
Don’t you think for just one second I gave you up
I didn’t & I won’t
So I hope we can call us “love”
At least for the holidays
At least for the holidays “my love”

Please make it happen
Please make it happen for us this Christmas
So we wear Santa hats
Like my friends did back in high-school
Hohoho
We might look stupid when we walk in the room
But they’ll wish they were wearing them too
They’ll say it’s sad
To hide the fact
That they think that we look cute

No gift can’t buy that feeling you give to me
Only you can make it bloom
So if you got doubts
Please remember that

I never gave you up
Don’t you think for just one second I gave you up
I didn’t & I won’t
So I hope we can call us “love”
At least for the holidays
At least for the holidays

My love
If we both want it
We’ll get it
Just reply my text
Set a date
& we’ll get at it
You know it
We don’t need Rudolph to guide us
Hohoho
We’ll be our own Santa
Exchange gifts & kisses
All the mistletoes
We’ll be marked “we were here” babe

I never gave you up
Don’t you think for just one second I gave you up
I didn’t & I won’t
So I hope we can call us “love”
At least for the holidays
At least for the holidays “my love”

I never gave you up
Don’t you think for just one second I gave you up
I didn’t & I won’t
So I hope we can call us “love”
So I hope we can call us “love”
At least for the holidays
At least for the holidays
