Most Christmas songs are written and recorded in the late Spring and early Summer. Many TV Christmas specials are recorded during the same time since many artists are heavily booked at the holidays.

This year, inspired by Target, Wal-Mart and other stores putting up their Christmas decorations up before Halloween, I wrote “60 Day of Christmas.” I also used the memories about some Christmases that weren’t all that enjoyable for me. We’ve all had them from time to time.

I hope you enjoy “60 Days of Christmas.” I’m going to start pitching it in Nashville this Spring but wanted to record the demo while the spirit was still in the air. Here’s the link for the song:

And the lyrics:

60 Days of Christmas ©2015 Steven D. Bryant

(VERSE 1)
‘Twas the night right after Christmas,
Not a Christmas tree in sight.
Folks took them down and threw them out,
Late on Christmas night.
They went up in October,
Along with Christmas lights.
It was 60 days of Christmas,
And 60 lonely nights.

(VERSE 2)
We both promised forever,
But that was just a lie.
Swore that we would love and honor,
‘Til the day we die.
Didn’t take long to crumble,
All the lying and the fights.
It was 60 days of Christmas,
And 60 lonely nights.

(CHORUS)
60 days of Christmas,
And 60 lonely nights.
Everywhere you hear a Christmas song.
60 days of Christmas,
And 60 lonely nights.
Can’t believe the hurt can last this long.

(BRIDGE)
We sang Christmas Carols,
Watched Charlie Brown on TV.
Now I spend my days alone,
You have a new family.

(VERSE 3)
(Half a verse instrumental solo.)

Don’t go out much at Christmas,
Don’t want to see the sights.
For those 60 days of Christmas,
And 60 lonely nights.

(CHORUS)
60 days of Christmas,
And 60 lonely nights.
Everywhere you hear a Christmas song.
60 days of Christmas,
And 60 lonely nights.
Can’t believe the hurt can last this long.
