Eric Clapton has released an original song he wrote for his current and just released Christmas album “Happy Xmas”. For Love On Christmas Day is personal type of a song and offers a perspective you don’t usually hear about during the holiday season. Wishing and missing someone to be with you during Christmas Day. His lyrics kind of paint a picture of a not so happy side of the holiday. I think the following lyrics pretty much say it all in this mind set;
“Snow is on the sidewalk, it’s cold inside my heart
I look up and I wonder, have I lost my guiding star
And everything is white outside, how can it be so dark?”
I certainly hope people don’t have to feel that way this Christmas season, but am glad he wrote that take on the holiday. The video just shows Clapton playing a guitar and singing this emotional number. I think him playing alone, drives the port home. Check it out below.
