about

Recorded live off the floor as part of Almonde Records' 2015 holiday song compilation, Cold December Nights isn't a festive tune so much as it is a somber ode to the creative spark we hold close, and share with others.

lyrics

Of all the lights that shine
I wish that yours was mine
So I could hold it in my hand
Like a piece of winter sun
I'd press it to my chest
Like a song I favoured best
Not to keep it for myself
But to savour and protect

But lights that shine are not designed
For being yours or mine
Their rightful place is in the sky
On cold December nights

Of all the flakes that fall
I fell softer than them all
And cradled in their hold
I barely felt the cold
I shone my very best
Gave what light I could possess
Found it easier by far
To shine in light already cast

But lights that shine are not designed
For being yours or mine
Their rightful place is in the sky
On cold december nights

Of all the lights that shine
I wish that I'd find mine
And I'd hold it to my heart
Like a lover long since lost
I'd press it to my chest
Whisper words that I love best
Then I'd sent it to the stars
To be where it belongs
