I love Christmas and I always wanted to write a Christmas song. I'm saving for the studio currently so I recorded this all myself just for fun, I hope you like it!
It's the time when everyone's home,
It's cold outside but we pretend we don't know,
As we bask by the fiery glow,
And think of all the things we've done this year.
All the kids are writing out their lists,
Though i'm older I also do this,
Ignore the mistletoe avoid the kiss,
Be grateful for all the things we have right here...
'Cause Christmas time can be so nice,
The snow outside will be alright,
If we stay together despite the weather,
And hope that our future's as bright,
As those sparkling Christmas lights.
The decorations are the stories told,
From New York to the coast of gold,
And the ones we made when we weren't old,
Are hanging upon the Christmas tree.
We remember all the people we miss,
It's always harder around Christmas,
If I had one wish it would be this,
To have you all still here with me...
We used to listen for the hooves upon the rooftop,
Waiting patiently to see the gifts under the tree and I...
Would wake up way before the sun was high above the hill,
It felt like time was standing still,
But the magic isn't lost.
