about

“This song was written by the dying embers of a fire at Christmas, after too much wine, thinking about moments lost and absent friends, with thoughts always falling back to that one person who inspires you above all else”

lyrics

I saw you waiting for a snowflake to fall,
the first one of the year, as the sky is getting clearer,
I always feel the same on Christmas eve,
I think about the past and how it never lasted,

and now I know, that something glows, white as snow each year,
with a crack of light, i realise, my every thought so clear,

If you walk away into the winters night, until you're out of sight,
I'll wait here for another year, i'll be standing right here

at Christmas..

These memories they come, they ebb and flow,
these colorful vignettes, they play out my regrets,

but in you I found a spirit light and free,
with a kindness in your soul, and dreaming of tomorrow,

and now i know, that something glows, white as snow each year,
with a crack of light, i realise, my every thought so clear,

If you walk away into the winters night, until you're out of sight,
I'll wait here for another year, i'll be standing right here

at Christmas,
at Christmas,
at Christmas,
at Christmas,

Take me back to when it meant more,
the Christmas tree inside your door,
the fire raging and the heat,
just tell me where you'd like to meet,

Take me back to when it meant more,
the Christmas tree inside your door,
the fire raging and the heat,
just tell me where you'd like to meet,

Take me back to when it meant more,
the Christmas tree inside your door,
the fire raging and the heat,
just tell me where you'd like to meet,

Dum da, da da, dum da, da da dum da, da da dum..
