I'm pretty happy with the music, but the lyrics are just a draft. I set out to write a Christmas song and didn't intend for it to be so somber. Maybe it's the chords that sent it in that direction, since I came up with the music first. It may end up not being a Christmas song at all.

Original draft (see 12/20/2015 post for revision)

verse:

The north wind is blowing
Soon it will be snowing.
It's Christmas time again.
I think of Christmas past,
Only memories last.
It's Christmas time again.

chorus:

It's the season of reflection,
A time for introspection.
It's Christmas time again.

verse:

I'm sending cards and letters
Saying "hope next year is better
And hope to see you then."
Each year the list's completed.
Few are added, more deleted
Among relatives and friends.

chorus

I added a third verse that makes it not so depressing.

verse:

The north wind is blowing
Soon it will be snowing.
It's Christmas time again.
I think of Christmas past,
Only memories last.
It's Christmas time again.

chorus:

It's the season of reflection,
A time for introspection.
It's Christmas time again.

verse:

I'm sending cards and letters
Saying "hope next year is better
And hope to see you then."
Each year the list's completed.
Few are added, more deleted
Among relatives and friends.

chorus

verse:

Everything's alright.
The angel's are in flight
And there go the wise men.
We celebrate the birth
And pray for peace on Earth.
It's Christmas time again.

chorus
