Song Description

Initially, this was going to be a piano/vocal track only, but it needed bass. But when I added bass, it needed some percussion. I tried to keep the percussion low-key. Yes, that is a heartbeat sound serving as the kick drum

Story Behind the Song

This is my 2016 Christmas song. I was working on a version of Jingle Bell Rock that was supposed to progress through multiple eras of rock. It fell apart somewhere in the early '80s. Somewhat frustrated, I sat down at the piano and this song just sort of came out. I almost immediately recorded it. It was largely improvised, thus it does get a little off-time in the bridge.

Lyrics

Christmas In Your Eyes

A wonderland of white
The sun shining bright
Decorations bathed in light
Bring life to dark of night

With those we hold dear close at hand
Tidings of peace throughout the land

Christmas in your eyes
Wish we could all see with the eyes of a child

Gifts under a tree
One for you and one for me
In the love we start to see
The new year about to be

Long ago and far away
A child born in our hearts this day

Christmas in your eyes
If we all had the eyes of that child

Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria in excelsis Deo
Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o'er the plains
And the mountains in reply
Echo back their glorious strains

Christmas in your eyes
If we all had the eyes of a child
