This Will Be Our Year

For so many reasons and for so many people, 2023 has been a really hard year, and it has been for my family and me, too. I know a new year doesn't make anything magically better, but my wish for you, for us, is that we have something to celebrate, to look toward, a tide change that brings us hope. Friends, this will be our year!


I continue my tradition of recording a holiday song this year with a little twist-- this wish for the New Year... and some good news!




This time, I collaborated with the amazing composer/ producer/ multi-instrumentalist Eric Shimelonis of WBUR's Circle Round fame!


Enjoy all of my carols and holiday songs on Spotify, Apple Music, or wherever you get your music!

Lyrics:

This will be our year, took a long time to come

The warmth of your love is like the warmth of the sun

And this will be our year, took a long time to come

Don't let go of my hand now darkness has gone


And this will be our year, took a long time to come

And I won't forget the way you held me up when I was down

And I won't forget the way you said, "Darling I love you"

You gave me faith to go on

Now we're there, and we've only just begun

This will be our year, took a long time to come


The warmth of your smile... smile for me, little one

And this will be our year, took a long time to come

You don't have to worry, all your worried days are gone

This will be our year, took a long time to come


And I won't forget the way you held me up when I was down

And I won't forget the way you said, "Darling I love you"

You gave me faith to go on

Now we're there, and we've only just begun

And this will be our year, took a long time to come


Yeah, we've only just begun

This will be our year, took a long time to come

...
