Description
This is my first perforce (singing) since November of 2013 apart from the 'Spoken Word' prose i posted lately. Apart from my fast deteriorating vocals, I had no inspiration, even for a Christmas song last year, so I really pushed myself this year and came up with this one, which I hope you'll like, M

Lyrics
Dream of Christmas

1. I dreamed that it was Christmas and all around was still,
I floated over soft white snow, toward a distant hill,
It seemed to me like night time; in the distance was a glow,
Something drew me forward; what it was I didn’t know.

2. I dreamed that it was Christmas and the stars were shining bright,
Guiding me and leading me forward to that light,
I heard the sound of music, as something swept me on,
I wondered what was leading me, but then I heard this song,

Chorus,
Peace has come, all war is gone and people live as one,
The fields are green, the sea is blue for all under the Sun,
Food there is a-plenty and everyone is free
Poverty there is no more; it’s all as it should be.

3. It seemed that i was floating high above the ground,
I looked below and saw the Earth; I still could hear the sound
Of voices singing praises for the peace that they had found,
Even as I wakened, the words they did resound

Chorus.

4. As I lay, i thought…. what a precious gift,
This Christmas time, If we could take those words to give the lift
Those words could sink into our heart and one day all be true,.
It only takes a willingness to love, then we can sing…
“Peace has come all war is gone and people live as one”
But then again….this was only a dream….but if only this dream could come true…..if it could just come true… and people live as one.
Maurice Vizard, Dec, 2014.

Ah...
The entry of bass and tiny bells at around 1:06 is just a piece of magical stardust, Maurice. You have such a deft touch when it comes to performing such a sensitive song. No problems with your voice at all. Call it "character" for lack of a better word. The swirl of your orchestration and the celestial choir add a delicate element to the lyrics, a well-designed element in your mix that helps to move the piece along at a comfortable yet driving pace. ... And, yes, "if only this dream could come true." ... Beautiful song, M. Glad you pushed yourself to write it.

I'm
so pleased with your response Paul as, having been out of touch for a while with the 'joys' of the technical side of recording I wondered if I'd got it right or not. Your confirmation gladdens me no end, thank you, regards M

A Christmas Dream
Nice lyrics and melody. It's not easy to write a new Christmas song. The traditional ones use up all the holiday air. You prove here there's room for more. Well done.

Thanks Andrew
I'm pleased you like the way I went about this and you're right, there does seem to be an abundance of Xmas songs so it's harder to eek out something a little different regards M

Glad you found the energy
This has such a light feel to it, it makes imagining the perfect Christmas easy. There's also a difference between wishful thinking and hope for a better world. I find your song a beautiful exploration of an ideal.

So glad you mustered the enthusiasm to create this, perfect for this time of year, and your voice has this timeless soothing quality. All the best and an early but Merry Christmas!

Good one Maurice
I'm not really a Christmas music sort of guy, but this has somewhat more than most yuletide tunes. You have such a natural voice here, and it suits the song perfectly. I'm very aware, listening to this, how much your recording of your voice has imp[roved over the past few years. Congratulations on a really classy Christmas track!
All the best for the silly season and of course, for 2015!
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Thanks Neil,
It all changed when I got used to the AUGraphic EQ controls in GB, though I lost my Ozone3 when they wanted a hundred quid for update (which I refuse to pay, for the few songs I'm recording at my age), because it wasn't compatible with Maverick....talk about patting each others back LOL. All the best to you and yours to Neil, regards M

What with
the lack of notifications and my sporadic involvement I missed this first time.

Fine sentiments Maurice. I liked the almost downbeat start and how you lift the song with the chorus and finish with a positive yet wistful note.

Cheers
