Week 32 – Save Me A Kiss On Christmas

I’ve been meaning to write a Christmas song at some point, so I guess this week’s it. It’s two weeks before Christmas after all, so why not? 🙂

Spending time with family is I think one of the most important things to do every Christmas season, other than of course celebrating the birth of Jesus. That’s why songwriters have written much about coming home for the festive season.

Songs like “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”, ” Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” and “Driving Home For Christmas” are some of the more popular examples I can think of.

This week’s song is all about coming home. It’s written from the perspective of someone who has gone away from the woman he loves to seek his fortune. She has given him her love and support, and is patiently waiting for him to return.

Now, after he’s done what he had to do, he’s trying to get home for Christmas, but he isn’t sure he’ll make it time. Flights are full, traffic is a killer, and everyone just seems to be getting in the way…

Still, he’s hoping for that special Christmas miracle to happen and he’s asking his love to save him a kiss when he returns.

Save Me A Kiss On Christmas
©Music and Lyrics by Marcel Lee Pereira, 11 Dec, 2010

The nights are a getting colder, this time of the year
I’ve been away too long, sung my song, climbed my mountain
Your voice was all I could hear

You told me to follow my heart, down the uncharted path
Since I’ve been gone, you’ve waited for me, so patiently
How I’ve prayed to see you again

There’s a star rising above your door
I’m a long way off, but I’ll get there for sure

The streets are filled with people
With nowhere to go
The city lights
Part of a show
Time moves too slow
My heart’s already flown
Save me a kiss on Christmas
I’m coming home soon

I’ve missed my flight and the traffic’s not a pretty sight
Will I get out of here, I’m lost in space, want your embrace
Your smile like starlight dancing in your eyes

A voice inside of me, telling me to believe
To hope against hope
I see a star rising above your door
I’m a long way off, but I’ll get there for sure
