about

I love Christmas carols. I grew up singing them with my parents and sisters. For me, Christmas is a wonderful time of sharing hope, joy, love and abundance with the ones who mean the most to you.

I must thank my wonderful Paul, who never stopped encouraging me to keep going throughout this insane project, who let me hijack his surprise planned romantic birthday weekend so I could sing and record Christmas carols literally by candlelight at 2am in a converted old church (he secretly packed the recording gear, because I 'might want to use it'), who was instrumental in teaching me the techy ways of GarageBand and Logic and who stubbornly mixed and mastered this baby until it was the beautiful shiny EP it is now. My Paul, you are Every Lovely Word I Know. One loves one.

This is for Paul & my family, who love to sing carols (the daggier the better). I'm sorry there are no disco beats on this one :)

Merry Christmas!

Track Name: Every Lovely Word I Know
Every Lovely Word I Know

December again, summer rains
No Jack Frost on our windowpane
The year's been long, I've sung my song
Now I'm headed back where I belong

The drive has made me, tired and lonely
I just need my one and only
Soon we'll be a family
Oh, I promise that I'll never leave

I'm coming home, don't need the road
I've never felt so incomplete, you're all I need
And I know this sounds so absurd, but you're every lovely word
I know

Tinsel beads, Christmas wreaths
Decorations on our tree
The house aglow, we're dancing slow
Underneath the mistletoe

I'm coming home, don't need the road
I've never felt so incomplete, you're all I need
And I know this sounds so absurd, but you're every lovely word
I know
