Since Christmas is in just three days, I spent some time searching for a Christmas song that we haven’t all heard a thousand times. I didn’t expect to stumble on it while watching “Psych”, but that’s exactly where I first heard “This is Christmas”, a catchy, pleasant, original Christmas tune by Curt Smith. The lyrics I’ve got here are just a transliteration born from me listening to the song about three and a half times, so they might not be entirely accurate, but I couldn’t find any “official” lyrics online so this is the best I can do. I can, however, provide you with a link to Curt’s website, where he explains what he was thinking when he wrote the song, so hopefully that will clear up any confusion my poor lyricsmanship (is that a word?) raises. I hope you enjoy this touching, brand-new Christmas piece, and have a very merry Christmas this Saturday. God bless!
Here’s the SoundCloud player (blast from the past):
And here are the (unofficial) lyrics:
Break out the guilt
‘Tis the season stopped making sense
Put out those fires
And always brace yourself
Give me the strength to hold together
Shine down on me
Am I only half the man I want to be?
All things change
This is Christmas
And this is home
Peace on earth’s
Been a long time coming
