It Only Lasts So Long

about

What a magical time that only comes around once a year - let's make this one last!

The warmth of this track is all thanks to our favorite, XLN Audio. We used their Studio Grand piano on the VHS Infomercial preset for some retro, honky vibes, their Mark One Rhodes on the Dimdal preset for some thick cushioning in the choruses, their Boutique Mallets for the kick drum and topped it off with their RC-20 on the master track to emulate a worn vinyl sound that gives the whole track a vintage feel.

Other notable gear: Waves Audio's J37, Brauer Motion, and AR TG Mastering / Vahalla's plate reverb.

lyrics

Santa's coming down the chimney
I hear the clatter on the rooftop
Santa's coming down the chimney
I hear the clatter on the rooftop

I feel Christmas the most
Whenever I see you smile
And I know it will grow
Cause Santa's coming tonight

No matter how much
I tell you
No matter how hard
I try to show you
It's the most magical time of the year
But it only lasts so long

So let's turn on the lights
And place another log on the fire
Wrap me up in your arms
While we sway till the end of the night

No matter how much
I tell you
No matter how hard
I try to show you
It's the most magical time of the year
But it only lasts so long

Santa's coming down the chimney
I hear the clatter on the rooftop
Santa's coming down the chimney
I hear the clatter on the rooftop

Well, the streets are draped in white
Carols seem to fill this chilly night
Stories from the old and Christmas past
Makes us hope it will last
But I know it won't last

I feel Christmas the most
Whenever I see you smile
And I know it will grow
To see the presents under the tree

No matter how much
I tell you
No matter how hard
I try to show you
It's the most magical time of the year

No matter how much
I tell you
No matter how hard
I try to show you
It's the most magical time of the year
But it only lasts so long

Santa's coming down the chimney
I hear the clatter on the rooftop
Santa's coming down the chimney
I hear the clatter on the rooftop

Merry Christmas, everybody
