HOLIDAY TIME ( STEVE DAFOE 2005 )
(COPYRIGHTED)

CHORUS:

I' M HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS'
JUST HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS'
WAITING FOR THE ONE GREAT DAY
WITH FAMILY, OH SO DEAR....

I' M HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS'
LOOKING FORWARD TO ANOTHER YEAR..
HOPE THE CHEER AND THE SNOW WILL STAY
SEEING FRIENDS, CREATES A TEAR..

I' M HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS'
JUST HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS'
OH, HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS'
HERE FOR THE HOLIDAYS....


VERSE 1:

SISTER BETH AND BROTHER JOHN
CAN'T WAIT FOR OLD SAINT NICK...
CHRISTMAS WREATHS AND MISTLETOE
AND LIGHTING THE X-MAS CANDLE WICK..

VERSE 2:

MOM AND DAD SET UP THE CHRISTMAS TREE
THEN THEY STAND UNDER THE MISTLETOE ...
SHOWING THEIR LOVE FOR ALL TO SEE...
LOVE AT ALL TIMES IS THE WAY IT SHOULD BE...

VERSE 3:

AND IN THE SKY THERE IS A LIGHT
COULD IT BE THAT JOLLY OLD GUY...?
NOTHING ELSE IS THAT RED AND SO BRIGHT...
TIME TO PUT MILK AND THE PIECE OF PIE....

Here's a sweet, engaging, "real home-made" Christmas song, straight from the heart. The guitar intro and playing throughout is so lovely...it's just makes you feel like you're sitting with the performer in front of the fireplace by the Christmas tree with his brothers Matt and John soaking up all the family love. Lots of specific word pictures draw the listener into the song and make it ever so real. The vocal is right on the snowflake (money didn't seem like the right word to use here, ha ha). What a down home great voice to listen to. The Jingle Bells picking at the end was the icing on the Christmas cookie...well done!

Another Holiday song!? Yup, and thank goodness. On a second listen, I'm already singing the chorus and it has all the comfort and goodness of the classic holiday tunes.... Which this is destined to be. Hurry up holidays... this tune should be on your list.

Nice guitar sound, nice simple structure

A most well meaning, deeply felt, family Christmas song. Sentimental, sweet, naive.

Great melody and guitar. Also the vocals are nice.
