About IT’S CHRISTMASTIME:

Although this is a new recording, Lisa’s Christmas song “It’s Christmastime” was written some years back when she was a freshman in college at State University of New York, College at Fredonia. She wrote the song just after she had finished December finals and was packing to go home for the holidays. The song captures the essence of being away from home for the first time and travelling back to family and loved traditions during the holiday season. Musically, the song is a throwback to the great melodic Christmas standards.

Lyrics for IT’S CHRISTMASTIME

My bags are packed, and the work is done
I’m finally on my way
I can put down my pen, I can breathe again
‘Cause it’s Christmas Time and I’m going home

I can picture my town, lights all around
And a gold star on the tallest tree
It just snowed last night, and I’m feeling all right
‘Cause it’s Christmas Time and I’m going home

So light the candles on the table and we’ll sit by the fire
I’ve been waiting so long can’t you see
We’ll sing some carols, and put up the tree
Oh won’t you please say you’ll wait for me

I’ve said goodbye to my friends, I’ll see them again
We’ll be back here soon enough
But there’s a chill in the air, and my family will be there
‘Cause it’s Christmas Time and I’m going home
It’s Christmas Time and I’m going home
