Season’s Greetings and all the best for the New Year

Below is the song “Winter Dream,” which I wrote a couple of years ago. I wanted to write a Christmassy song without mentioning Christmas and so “Winter Dream,” a love story set in a winter wonderland was born. If you like it you can download it for free. Written, performed and produced by the artist formerly known as Acoustic Jim i.e. me 😉

So what’s with the tea? Well, coincidentally the lovely people at Newby Teas happened to call one of their winter tea ranges “Winter Dream,” so I thought it apt that you enjoy a cup whilst listening to the song. It’s a black tea with a zing of ginger and a tang of lemon. NB Best drunk without milk.

Have a wonderful Christmas and I hope to work with you again in the New Year

Winter Dream Lyrics

Feathered flakes
Soft cottons skies
Winter sings
Her lullaby

Branches glisten,
Snow slowing time
Moonlight’s mirrored
On scented pine

[Chorus] So take my hand and come with me
Down the snowy lanes of a winter dream
We’ll gather wood and lie by the fire
To the echo of a distant choir
Oh won’t you say, that you will stay, in my winter dream

Stars they swim
In midnight blue
Their beauty pales
Compared to you

Angels fly
And angels sing
You’re just like them
Without the wings

[Chorus] So take my hand and come with me
Down the snowy lanes of a winter dream
We’ll gather wood and lie by the fire
To the echo of a distant choir
As they sing, our love will ring, in our winter dream

Through waking eyes snow slowly turns to rain
But like the seasons this dream will surely fade
But as I freeze this moment
for eternity
I have one last wish
before you have to leave

[Chorus] Please take my hand and come with me
Down the snowy lanes of a winter dream
We’ll gather wood and lie by the fire
To the echo of a distant choir
And finally, it was just me,
In my winter dream
