about

Written in 10 minutes in the last rehearsal of 2013 whilst doing the full band recording for 'Christmas At My House'. Probably the least jokey Christmas song we've recorded (so far...)

lyrics

Now the nights are all early, the cold's drawing in
Wake or leave work and it's dark once again
You long for the Summer that's lost round the bend

But Christmas is my time of year
Yeah Christmas is my time of year

Now I'm not religious and I don't believe
I don't know the significance of the tree
But I'm all aglow like the lights in the street

'Cause Christmas is my time of year
Yeah Christmas is my time of year

Now when I was younger I worked in a shop
The same Christmas songs on a loop that won't stop
They'll drive you insane while shoppers run amok

But Christmas is my time of year
Yeah Christmas is my time of year

It's time for your family and time for your friends
The ones that you love and the ones you depend
On keeping you warm 'til the Spring comes again

That's why Christmas is my time of year
That's why Christmas is my time of year
That's why Christmas is my time of year
That's why Christmas is my time of year
