This is a Christmas song I wrote a few years ago and I wanted to share it with you.

Big thanks to Shanna Keller and Ian Thompson who performed on this track with me. Happy Holidays!

This Time of Year

This time of year
Don't you feel better
If you get a cold
We've got holiday sweaters

I remember the years long ago
I remember the weather
I could see out the window for miles
At the snow colored feathers

And I could see you
I could see you
And I could see you
I could see you

This time of year
I need you more
The memories are near
And they keep me warm

There are lights everywhere
And the streets are a mess
We have stocking caps on
And we're all at our best

And this time of year
I need you home

Merry Christmas my love...
