|Lyrics:||Been a long tough year and now December’s here
Snow is falling and memories calling
The lost and found through the year
But there’s a light shining in the night
So if you adore me stay part of my story
Where everything turns out all right.
Cause now we’re counting down to Christmas
and the new year’s on its way
The light will return the love will return
and Santa’s coming on his sleigh
So light a fire inside. Welcome in Yuletide.
Under mistletoe smiling your lips are beguiling
And sadness has no place to hide

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
