Some Of Us 03:11
Some of us have Some of us don't Some of us will And some of us won't Some of us hope And some of us try Some of us miss And some of us sigh Some of us long For a place to call home Some of us have one And still feel alone Some of us hurt When some of us leave Some of us smile And some of us grieve Some of us dream And some of us ask Why all this waiting And when will it pass

about

We usually look for the Christmas and holiday season to be a time of joy, excitement and good cheer.  And hopefully that's the case...

However, it can also be a time when loneliness, struggle, grief and disappointment are also present and often unacknowledged.

For many, the holidays are a mix of both.

“The Longest Night” is an eight song collection of well-known instrumental carols and original compositions exploring themes of longing, lament, nostalgia and hope that are experienced around the holidays.

With introspective and thoughtful arrangements, "The Longest Night" is a comforting companion along the journey of the holiday season.
