Hi,

I just finished this song, it took me 4 hours and boy am I whacked.
Just thinking of all the people overseas who will miss Christmas.

Take a listen, find it here :- Cozy Nights


Scroll down to see the Lyrics.

I used the following:

Style is _BRSOLCB.STY (CountryBallad BrentGtSolo [65RS])

RealTracks in style: 366:Bass, Electric, Country Ev 065
RealTracks in style: ~364:Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Ev 065
RealTracks in style: ~368:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Ev 065
RealTracks in style: 1513:Guitar, Electric, Soloist CountryBrent Ev 065
RealDrums in Style: NashvilleEven8^2-SideStick,HiHat
*******************

Best regards and seasons greetings to all.
George

Cozy nights and happy days
Comes the season of winter's ways
Mistletoe hanging by the tree
Wish that you were here with me

See the snowflakes on the ground
Watch them slowly drifting down
By the fireside chestnuts on the roast
But what I miss is you the most

Spare a thought for our young brave hearts
Overseas in those difficult parts
Spending time alone in the night
Thinking only will I be alright

Send your love and wish them well
One day soon they will return from hell
Leave the lights on so that they can see
The love from you and me

Instrumental

Send them love on this Christmas night
Come home safe and be alright
The time will be here soon enough
We made it through it was tough

Hi George

It works now, I don't know how it came through without vocals the first time. Nice song, refreshing to hear a Christmas song without religious undertones.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for letting me know that you can hear the vocals now.
I was a little concerned that maybe I had uploaded the wrong version

Thank you again.

Best regards
George

Merry Christmas George.

I like the sound of this one and the presence of your voice - clear and uncluttered.
I think you have two very separate song ideas - one for lovers and one for soldiers.
Did you think of two separate songs initially?

Have you tried working much with harmony lately? IMO it would work well in the chorus. Maybe raise Brent's solo a bit.

This song has a nice peacefulness to it.
Cheers - Ian

Hi Ian,

A very happy Christmas to you too.

I will be adding to this song once I get Band in a Box 2012 up and running.

Harmonies may be added as your suggestion.

I was thinking of the snow falling outside when I was inside and nice and warm.
Then I saw a news item about war.
So the two thoughts just married together.

Best regards
George
