A Dream for Christmas (Day 192)

The last three songs I’m planning to post on Project 194 all have a particular personal meaning for me. I wrote “A Dream for Christmas” as a Christmas present for D’Arcy many years ago. This is a composer’s demo of the song with me in a particularly soulful mood. I know, it’s the middle of summer, and Christmas is the last thing any of us are thinking of, but there’s so much love and so much truth in this song that I have to share it now!

Looks like we made it through another year.
Let’s share some Christmas cheer,
What do you say?
Although our future’s not exactly clear,
At least we made it here
And we’re okay.
It’s Christmas Eve at a quarter to two.
The kids are sleeping, and there’s plenty to do,
But come sit with me by the Christmas tree
And you can open up my present to you.

I want to give you A Dream For Christmas
And wrap it sweetly in a song,
A dream of comfort and joy
To make our holidays seem beautiful
And last the whole year long.

I know the money isn’t always there.
There isn’t much to spare,
God knows its true.
We’ve learned to manage with the cupboard bare,
Though we try not to care,
Sometimes we do.
Though means are meager, we seem to get by
‘Cause dreams are always in ample supply
And the dream we share is a gift that’s rare.
It brings up happiness and harmony
That’s sure to linger when the Christmas tree is a memory.

I want to give you A Dream For Christmas
And wrap it sweetly in a song,
A dream of comfort and joy
To make the holidays seem beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
And make each day a holiday all year long.
