We’ve Got Love (Under The Christmas Tree)

posted in: Music | 2

I started this song on 12/20/12, and it never jelled. Three years later to the date, I was given guidance during one of my meditations to pull it out and finish it.
I had one version finished yesterday but I wasn’t happy with it.

I was going to write it off as a learning experience but I let my husband Dwight hear it,and he gave me some great feedback on areas that needed improvement. Inspired again,  I went back to the drawing board and here it is. I’m so glad I didn’t paint over it!
Have A Listen 🙂

 

 

We’ve Got Love (Under The Christmas Tree)

3 Foot 3, really sweet
Stopped by for a treat
Santa hat on her head
Red shiny boots on her feet
She pranced around the room
And then she whispered to me
Why ya got no presents
Under your Christmas tree

I said oh it may look empty now
But I hope someday you’ll see
We’ve got love
We’ve got love
Under our Christmas tree

Eyes of green, scrutiny
Stared in disbelief
Anna bent and turned red
Still searching under the tree
Her dancing resumed
And then she whispered to me
But why ya got no presents
Under your Christmas tree

I said oh it may look empty now
But I hope someday you’ll see
We’ve got love
We’ve got love
Under our Christmas tree

Presents come presents go
Time wears them out in the end you know
Hugs from mom, favorite songs
When you feel the love you can’t go wrong
Yes I know the tree looks bare
But I can feel love’s presents everywhere

She ran up and hugged me
And I knew that she could see
We’ve got love
We’ve got love
Under our Christmas Tree
We’ve got love
We’ve got love
Under our Christmas tree
