This week’s theme is season.”

~~~~~~~~~~

I have four CDs I don’t have to wait until Christmas to play. Luther Vandross’ 1995 This is Christmas is one of them.

The song I put on repeat the most? Every Year, Every Christmas.

Co-written by Vandross and Richard Marx, the song is about a man and woman agreeing to meet at a certain time and place on Christmas… and she doesn’t show up. Yet, the man returns every year, hopeful this will be the year she comes. Of course, she doesn’t, but it’s Luther Vandross singing, so I’m good. 😀

The single enjoyed moderate success, reaching number thirty-two on the R & B charts, but the album went to number 4 at both Billboards Top Holiday Albums and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and was certified platinum. It’s also a steady seller throughout the Christmas season.

Enjoy!

Every Year, Every Christmas

I don’t know how love could do this to me
I’ve waited and waited for someone I never see
But I’m so sentimental, and I’m so hopeful you’ll be there
So, here I am every year, every Christmas
I’ve wished for you in my heart and in my head
And I got my answer that first moment that we met
And, oh yes, I believed you as you told me, as you said
You’d be here every year, every Christmas
There must be a lesson for me to learn
If you don’t trust in love, you’ll get nothing in return
Why should I be lonely, don’t tell me it’s right
I have my pride, but I’d rather be with you tonight
So much emotion, it’s driving me mad
But I’ll take my chances with these feelings that I have
And I’ll come back to this same corner where we met
And I’ll be here every year, every Christmas
Mere words can’t explain the pain and the fear
‘Cause oh, I wonder, yes, I wonder are you gonna leave me standing here
Today’s almost over, but I don’t want to leave
Has my heart made a fool out of me?
My friends gather round me with holiday cheer
They say to forget you, to let you go ’cause you’re not here
Well, I can’t keep explaining what they’ll never understand
And why I’m here every year, every Christmas
I return every year, every Christmas
I come here every year, every Christmas
