Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays xo
Joyeux Noël et un heureux Temps des Fêtes xo


Precious memories houses hold
Greet you passing through the door
Caroling around that old piano

Ginger cookies golden brown
Fragrant pine upstairs and down
Mama's table a Christmas fable once more

But we're the lucky ones
Let's not forget the lonely ones
Everyone needs love at Christmas time

Hands outstretched in bitter cold
Walked right past and overlooked
No smiling faces, friendly places of yore

Shopping malls are overrun
Present hunters old and young
But it's not things most will be missing when the spending's done

Have a look beyond the tinsel
Help make reasons to be hopeful
Spend a little love this Christmas time
Have a look beyond the tinsel
Help make reasons to be hopeful
Reach out to someone this Christmas time

From the bright, candy-striped grooves that lure us in at the outset to the darkling lavender hues of mélancolie that infiltrate the album like stiff spirits in our pink lemonade, she reminds us that, not only will she always carry a stash of R&B to hit us up with, but she also has a few other tricks up her sleeve. ... more
