Here's where it gets a little convoluted but also special. I hate this song and I love it and I'm so very proud of it and yet I wish a million times it didn't exist. I wish everyone we love would live forever. Instead somehow, we have nothing but each fleeting moment, and music to live on. You can read the lyrics here or click below to watch the original lyric video with a parade of magical, cozy Christmas lights...
Side note- I suppose this is as good a time as any to announce that "December Song" is a Semi-Finalist in this year's UK Songwriting Contest, in the Christmas category. Fingers crossed it might go to the finals!?
Anyhow I loved this song enough to base an entire album around it. The first line of the original song is "December Comes Again", which is now what the entire album is called. Today's preview track is called Colder Every Night, and it steals its title from verse 1 of the original. [Stay tuned for a few more homages to the original song, but for now I think this is confusing enough!?] And I promise there are happy songs too- I even did Jingle Bells.... But couldn't end the album without a sad one, obviously.
Thanks for reading, if you've made it this far :) Have a listen, if you like:
