It's that time of year First snow's in the air Your face all aglow Sing a song you know Strings of little lights Candles burning bright Your face all aglow Sing a song you know Though your heart may be heavy Take my hand and you'll see All I need is what's in front of me to have a Merry Christmas now Walk out in the cold Sing a song you know


"I knew I wanted to write a Christmas song after the difficult year we’ve all had, because of how emotionally potent they can be. When I hear Judy Garland sing “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” I can’t help but well up with tears while still remaining hopeful. I came up with the chord progression on piano, but then I got covid. Thankfully I had a mild case, but not only was my motivation and creativity completely drained, I also couldn’t sing very well because of limited breath control. Luckily I recovered in time, and with the help and generosity of my friends and team I was able to finish this song in time to have it out just before Christmas. The song is called “Your Heart May Be Heavy” which I didn't consciously realize was an inversion of Judy’s “may your heart be light.” Merry Christmas to everyone muddling through, I hope this song in its small way can be a gift of cheer." -Anna Burch
