This Christmas Day
Christmas Eve and Other Stories (1996)
For of all the dreams
You were the first I knew
And every other one
Was a charade of you
You stayed close when I was far away
To round out my Twenty-Five Days of TSO, the last song is This Christmas Day, part three of The Ornament Trilogy.
It’s Christmas Day. She’s coming home!
The prayers of the father and the girl had been answered, with the help of an angel, by some bums who called their Old City Bar home, and delivered the sparkling Ornament back home on This Christmas Day.
Christmas looks out for us and gives us something to dream about during the darkest time of the year. It brings people together and makes it easier to believe that there is good in all people, or that our sins might be forgiven by those that we’ve slighted. It’s snow and magic and wonder.
(Note: Check back tomorrow for a bonus track. Santa visited us today and gave us tickets to see Tran-Siberian Orchestra live on December 26th! Merry Christmas to us!)
(Note 2: I’ve had a blast revisiting these songs. I’m considering doing this again with other bands or artists that I enjoy. Maybe with a little more relaxed schedule than 25 posts in 25 days, but we’ll see. Maybe I’ll even consider doing the next round as a podcast, though doing that, I should work on getting the rights to some of the tracks to play right in the audio of the podcast and not rely on a playlist or videos… we’ll see.)
