THEO: Hi everyone, this is Theo. We're releasing episodes on a Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but in the meantime, we got so into that holiday spirit that we wrote this little song, performed by the Fire the Canon House Band. We hope you enjoy it, and check in tomorrow for a new episode. All right, here we go.

Lyrics:

Happy holidays
In my mind you’re staying warm
It’s been a year outside the norm, I know,
But we’re hangin’ on

On the precipice
Of a brand new year, my dear
When it all feels so unclear, don’t know
How can we move on?

The season dresses, dresses, dresses in its winter gown
The snow is falling, falling down

Oh if I could just be there with you
Or you could be here with me
That’d be a happy holiday

Happy holidays
Nothing’s going the way it’s planned
But if I could just touch your hand
I think this ice would thaw

And then if only, only, only I knew how to pray
Then maybe, maybe I would say

Oh if I could just be there with you
Or you could be here with me
That’d be a happy holiday

Happy holidays
It’s not what anyone expects
But it’s cause and it’s effect
We know every night turns to dawn

If I could be there (be there)
Or you could be here (be here)
We’d have a happy holiday

(sound of cassette tape ending)
