This Time of Year

If this time of year is not filled with joy
And it’s too hard to be merry, no need to ask why
When the star of Christmas and the sweet falling snow
The wind in the trees, somehow seem to know

It’s been a long while of barely struggling through
So just do what you can, take such good care of you
You don’t have to be merry or full of good cheer
There will be other Christmases, there will be a new year

No need to give presents if it’s just way too tough
Just wish others well, that will be enough
No, you don’t have to be merry, you don’t have to be bright
Keep your own candle burning, make it through the dark night

Make it through the dark night, count the return of the sun
Keep your own light inside you for a new time to come
Look for a new north star, one that will guide the way
A new north star of Christmas and a brand new shining day
