CHRISTMAS 2020

This year hasn't quite been what any of us expected. I found myself cancelling tours, postponing releases, leaving Los Angeles and driving back to  Vancouver Island to wait out the year on my parents' blueberry farm. What I thought would be a gentle press on the pause button wound up being quite a bit more than that.  I've been here since, burrowing into the recording studio to keep myself sane. 

One moment in July, the whole world felt so heavy I knew I had to take drastic measures. I turned to the one thing that always brightens me up. I pulled out some Christmas lights, got myself a peppermint mocha, turned on a record and swaddled  myself  in the Christmas music of the 1940s. It Can't Be Christmas Without You Here was born on a hot July night by a hopeless Christmas addict dreaming about lighter times when we can all be together. I hope you enjoy.

Whether you are near or far from those you love, whether you celebrate Christmas or you don't, I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a way better new year.  Love to you always. And thank you for listening! xoxo Hayley

IT CAN'T BE CHRISTMAS WITHOUT YOU HERE
Copyright 2020 Hayley Sales

Far away I hear it now
Christmas time is back around
I lay up awake and watch it snow
 

Maybe I should be okay
Let the year just fall away
Look at what I have and let you go

But it's not Christmas without you here
It can't be Christmas without you near
It isn't Christmas/ It Isn't Christmas/ It isn't Christmas without you here

Every street is lined with light
Drinks and parties fill my night
Think there'd be no way I'd feel alone

But again when I get home
Dream of how it could have gone
I'd give everything to have you know

But it's not Christmas without you here 
It can't be Christmas without you near 
It isn't Christmas/ It Isn't Christmas/ It isn't Christmas without you here

Take down the bright lights
Hide every present
All that I want is you
It's worth the waiting
Anticipating 
I'm going to wait for you...

It can't be Christmas without you here
