Story

I wrote this Christmas song in 1992 while sitting in an old dormitory study room, pillaged by final exams. I was looking for Christmas, and as I sat in the room with my guitar, you must believe me, memorial snowflakes began twirling around me, then outside. And when the song was finished, I had found Christmas. 

Twenty-two years later, I found the song on an old cassette, whining and hissing like a trapped snow wolf. I finally recorded it properly, after surrendering to my mother's years of unflappable wrangling. When I listened to the recording, I found Christmas again. Now I hope to keep it the rest of my life. 

I hope the song brings you the same things. 

Happy Holidays!

Lyrics

Christmas is falling on me again

Like a snow from my youth

Each soft flake a memory

Twirling in my room

The season is cheering my soul again

Like it’s done times before

 

(Chorus) And as each year rolls on

I’ll sing this song till Christmas time is every day

 

Here I am counting the days again

Like a child lost in sweet dreams

So much to wake up to, so much joy to bring

This year I’m going to make it count

Let love light my way

 

(Chorus) Repeat

 

(Bridge)

I’ve tried to give more than receive

But I don’t need a thank you, to keep the memory

I’ve tried to be good all year long

But I don’t need a story, to make it live on

 

So this year I’m making brand new start

Going to live from my heart

Why wait till next year?

To play my part

Cause Christmas is falling on me again

But this time it’s here to stay

 

(Chorus) Repeat
