Description
I'm not much into christmas songs....
A few years ago I wrote this song, it reflects the mood of these dark days at the end of the year.
I hope you like it

Lyrics
See no past or future
It is all in a mist
It's just this tiny world
That is all that exists
Reminiscing on pasttimes
I can't see what's ahead
Things just ain't so clear
Right here in my head

A cold winter night
Two feet of snow
A cold, cold starry light
Just nowhere to go
Why can't it be Christmas
Each and every day?
Like in my childhood days
So much time to play

Those were the days
Those were the days

These times are so confusing
I better hang on to my girl
She makes me feel secure
In this big and hostile world
And what about our baby?
She's still young and doesn't know
That the world is rapidly changing
And we are going low

Some memories caught up with me
Of days so long ago
When I was small and the world was big
How was I to know?
I can never go back
Just memories of my mom and dad
And some good friends
That I once had

Those were the days
Those were the days

Blimey not done that for many years!!! Love the piano sound. Christmas acts like a magnifying glass on the year that's been and the many Christmas's that went before. You captured that feeling well.

This is a great song, KC. Wonderful vocal performance, too. Love the understated vibe and the electric piano/bass combo. Right up there with your best (and there have been many). As long as there is music like this there is hope. Take care. And thanks.

Cees!
So, that sounds like a proper Christmas - we had 29ºC, champagne, prawns, oysters and salad sitting outside after putting up our grand-daughters' new trampoline. I like the clarity of this production - piano sounds great and I really like the positioning and sound of the drum track.
A very enjoyable listen too.
All the best for 2017!
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Nice gentle rhythm. I like the strings that come in for the chorus. Powerful lyrics. I was expecting a guitar solo to take it out, but I see why you stuck to what had set the tone of the song. I like this a lot, KC.

The other side of the Xmas tree
As a thinking adult, it's hard to grasp the childlike wonder that Christmas represents .. or nurture a sense of hope when the world seems to have turned upside down. This song nicely captures that melancholic consciousness.
