Song Description

Written by Reid and his Mrs., this swinging single sums up what remains a rather complicated time of year for many. And yet, each year when lights begin to twinkle, and the melodies of Christmas past make their home in our hearts once again, the magic of holiday music can somehow make even the scrooge in us want to sing along.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Well meaning, pleasant Christmas song. Calm and soothing, sentimental in spite of itself. I have trouble with the beat, and find the southern twang of the singing a bit too folksy, but that is just my personal taste, most people enjoy a steady beat.

Lyrics

SENTIMENTAL SONG
Written by Reid Jamieson & Carolyn Victoria Mill

You know it's not my time of year
Too many heartaches and far too many tears
Miles apart from the family I hold dear
I find it hard to play along

While I watch the fire glow
Some go hungry, while others play with gold
Away in a manger the night is growing cold
I find it hard to sing along

It's just this sentimental song
I haven't heard it in so long
But when they put that record on
I can believe again

In candy canes and mistletoe
White lights and wishes tied up with a bow
Each time they turn that music low
I can believe again

You know it's just that time of year
Memories play while I try to raise a cheer
They hang on the tree just like silent souvenirs
I find them hard to string along

Sometimes I'd rather be alone
I've got my reasons; I just thought
that you should know
The saddest of seasons since we
watched my mother go
I find it hard to sing along

It's just this sentimental song
I haven't heard it in so long
But when they put that record on
I can believe again

In angels dancing in the snow
Sleigh bells and reindeer prancing in a row
Each time they turn that music low
I can believe again

It's just a simple melody
Pulls at my heartstrings,
and sets my spirit free
I remember the words,
how she sang them to me
And so I'll try to sing along

It's just this sentimental song
I haven't heard it in so long
But when they put that record on
I can believe again

In candy canes and mistletoe
White lights and wishes tied up with a bow
Each time they turn that music low
I can believe again

You know it's not my time of year...
