Tindog Holiday

1.
All of those mornings, all of those years All of the laughter, all appear in my dreams, the night before Christmas and I awake Christmas blessed No matter the reason, through the years I feel the season as friends draw near And just in time, the night before Christmas and I awake Christmas blessed It's not just nostalgia, it's too real to be It's the light of my childhood returning to me Cycle to cycle, tree after tree There's still a child there in my dreams Still full of laughter, though it seems he's hard to awaken the morning of Christmas perhaps that child wishes that I awake Christmas blessed Secrets and presents, and friends come to play Phone calls from relatives, far away I recall, the night before Christmas and I awake Christmas blessed It’s there in my memory, the scent of the tree and Mom and Dad’s coffee, come back to me Safe and familiar, the night before Christmas and I awake Christmas blessed And it's not just nostalgia, it's too real to be It's the light of our childhood returning to each Cycle to cycle, gift upon gift upon gift upon gift… There's still a child there in your dreams Still full of laughter, though it seems he's hard to awaken the morning of Christmas perhaps that child wishes we all awake Christmas blessed Perhaps that child wishes The world will awaken Christmas blessed

Quickly approaches the end of the year, outside the snowflakes are falling Christmas is coming, the shopping is done, the tree and the gifts are enthralling Santa will magically visit the tree, bringing the hopes of the season Suspended in time, he waits till the children are snug as a bug and sleeping Christmas has… Christmas has… Christmas has… Christmas has come Family arrives with gifts of their own, excited with holiday cheer From house to house the carolers sing of sleigh bells they’re hoping to hear On water like glass, frozen in time, people are skating in together The warmth of their joy cuts through the cold, easing the harsh winter weather Christmas has… Christmas has… Christmas has… Christmas has come to delight us, to thrill and invite us to learn of the love that it brings to enlighten us Reconnecting, together reflecting, to brighten a hopeful new year Christmas has come The thrill of the season is filling the air, the holiday meal comes together Aromas redolent of feasts through the years, the memories linger forever Deep in the night, presents appear in the light from the tree as it dances Clothes for the teens, toys for the kids, little gifts hid in the branches Christmas is… Mistletoe, holly Christmas is… chestnuts and chimneys Christmas is… Jesus and Mary Christmas is… toys and trains Christmas is… Eggnog and fruitcake Christmas is… nativity scenes Christmas is… magi and ornaments… Christmas is… Christmas cookies and candy canes Christmas has… Christmas has… Christmas has… Christmas has come Then all are asleep, warm and content, exhausted and quietly dreaming ‘Neath wreaths woven from kindness and love, slumbering wishes are fleeting At early O’clock, alarms all go off, the chaos begins of unwrapping The children so soon worn out from the fun, satisfied, happy and napping Christmas has… Christmas has… Christmas has… Christmas has come to delight us, to thrill and invite us to learn of the love that it brings to enlighten us Reconnecting, together reflecting, to brighten a hopeful new year Christmas has come

Lookin’ for love this Christmas Hopin’ for love this New Year No presents coming and no presents going No Ho Ho Ho, and no reindeer Lookin’ for love this Christmas Stuffed in the stocking or under the tree If I’m real good and I don’t shake my package and leave some cookies by the chimney I’ve got blue Christmas lights in my window Blue, shiny blue tinsel and even blue tears I’m sendin’ out blue Christmas cards… and listenin’ to Ol’ Muddy Waters ‘Cause you gave me a blue heart… for Christmas this year The leaves are fallin’ from the mistletoe I burned the fruitcake and spilled the eggnog If Hershey don’t quit makin’ kisses My youth and my health will be just reminiscences You… you gave me a blue heart… for Christmas this year Lookin’ for love this Christmas Makin’ my list so carefully Santa please read it and bring me my baby So I won’t be lonely this New Year’s Eve I’ve got blue Christmas lights in my window Blue, shiny blue tinsel and even blue tears I’m sendin’ out blue Christmas cards… and listenin’ to Ol’ Muddy Waters ‘Cause you gave me a blue heart… for Christmas this year

about

Schweitzer Los Angeles, California

My brother started writing songs and that was the spark that started me on my own songwriting course that would last the rest of my life. I chose to use my surname, "Schweitzer," for practical reasons, realizing long ago that pronouncing "Richard Schweitzer" was difficult. "Schweitzer Projects" under the "tindog music & stuff" umbrella is producing songs in the Pop / Pop rock or folk categories ... more
