1st Verse
Driving home through the snow and rain
Will the Holidays be the same?
With every beat of the wiper blades,
My thoughts go back to my childhood days
Memories of smells and good cheer
Hoping that we've all been good this year

Christmas gives us all new chances
Helps us with those broken fences
O0000000, It can be sad this time of year
We'll make amends and make new friends
It will change the way we see the New Year

2nd Verse
Snow flakes floating thru the air
Like dancing children with no cares
I'm reaching out for days gone by
Still believing reindeers fly
Oh, memories that bring good cheer
Hoping that we've all been good this year


I can almost see the old home now, it's just up ahead, around the bend

Really cool and unique piece for the holidays. The vocal and tasteful, jazzy sax peppered through this tune give it a mysterious and dreamy feel to it. Great lyrics and production... the electronic rhythmic parts give it a "pop" feel that keep it accessible and easy to listen to. Great job!!

This holiday song has a jazzy, spooky feel. I like the line "with every beat of the wiper blades my thoughts go back to my childhood days." The imagery of the snowflakes and dancing children is also creative and emotive. Mending fences is also another great, needful and encouraging motivational message for the holidays.
