Seasonal/month appropriate song: ‘December’

I wrote this song a few years ago about as you might have guessed – December. I tried to capture the melancholy feeling of the Holiday Season through two aging lovers who have seen both the good and the bad and are now coming to terms with what lies ahead in their future. Hope you enjoy!

December – lyrics

Her light is on but does she feel?
Does she think she will never grow old?
I can’t remember the last deal that was ever made in the cold
December is always dark and the stars are seldom sold
They just hang there on display – no love for the one’s
Who stayed

Dreamers I call out your name
If I cut you will you bleed the same?
The young they live on their dreams
But the old live by their truths

Come down – come down my love
The hour is getting late

There’s a sunset on Christmas Eve
Orange and burning just like in your dream
When you awoke you were old
And you spread your wings and smiled
You said I’m just like the wind
I’m going to hold-on to the air

I jumped with a grin
And took hold of your hand
I said…

Come down – come down my love
The hour is getting late

Come down – come down my love
It’s Christmas Day

Seasonal (autumn) song: ‘Beauty in the Light’

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailFacebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Although I can appreciate the change of seasons living in upstate/Troy, New York, there is something about late fall/autumn and the shortening daylight that makes me feel a bit melancholy/depressed, almost as if I am grieving the loss of a friend from warmer days. The woman I was dating at the time I wrote this, helped me see another side to it all, as she was a big fan of winter and that certain magic that comes with a first snow, the winter solstice, a New Year beginning, bringing new possibilities to ones mind. I recorded this in my very little office/studio – which surprisingly has some decent acoustics.

Hope you enjoy,

‘Beauty in the Light’ – Lyrics

Watching the snow come down – blowing my memories

I still remember that green grass

So pure and clean

But fall is coming on – winter on its way

I feel that chill  I can’t get warm

Time to put my love away

I’m shrugging that cold away – I believe I might be fine

But you know me better there’s things that words

Just can’t define

Then you said there’s beauty in the light

All the way – from the stars down to our eyes (from the stars to our eyes…)

So we’ll walk hand in hand – through the cold and damp

Spring is coming it always does

Maybe we can make it there

But you said why worry – about something that’s so far off

When there’s beauty in the air

And magic in our hearts

Then you said there’s beauty in the light

All the way – from the stars down to our eyes (from the stars to our eyes…)
