At Christmas Time

Story Behind The Song

This Christmas song is about wanting a loved one home for the holidays. From soldiers overseas to loved ones that are separated from their families because of the economy or many other reasons it's a common theme these days and felt more deeply during the holiday season. I'd never written a Christmas song in all the years I've been a songwriter and was determined to finally do it. I wrote it over the Christmas holidays of 2008 and finished it around Christmas time. I've done several versions - this one more of an urban pop meets American standard.

Lyrics

At Christmas Time

It's Christmas time again
I hope you're here by then
Gifts and cheer
And some arms to hold you near
At Christmas time

Please say you'll find a way
To make it Christmas day
Our sweet home
Full of love and mistletoe
Oh I miss you
Want to kiss you at Christmas time

Don't you know
That everywhere I go
I hear carols and sleigh bells chime
It's just a show
Those lights can't match the glow
You feel at home at Christmas time

So if this year we're apart
Let's keep Christmas in our hearts
When cold winds blow
There's a place that we can go
And wherever you are
We're together not far
This December
You'll be with us at Christmas time
