This Could Be The Year

Written by Reid Jamieson and Carolyn Victoria Mill from Songs for a Winter’s Night. What started as a Christmas song ended up also being a tongue-in-cheek homage to the Stanley Cup. Whatever team you are pulling for, this twang-filled tune tells the tale of long standing wishes granted, and/or grace in disappointment. Featuring the tasty talents of Steve Dawson on Banjo and slide guitar. (lyrics below)

I’ve got a feeling,
this could be the year
I’m gonna get what I wish for
I’ve been good so long

I’ve got a feeling
this could be the year
I’m gonna get what I wish for
I’ve been good so long

and if I’ve got it wrong
there’s always next year
I’ll be strong
till you come home
where you belong

It’s coming nearer
and this could be the year
we all get what we long for
this feeling can’t be wrong

let’s raise a cheer for
making this the year
we all get what we need lord
we’ve been waiting so long

and if we get it wrong
there’s always
next year
we’ll stay strong
till we get home
where we belong

winters come and winters go
high hopes melting
with the snow
I find myself just wishing though
for you and me, you never know

I’ve got a feeling
this could be the year
I’m gonna get what I wish for
I’ve been good so long

let’s raise a cheer for
making this the year
we all get what we need lord
we’ve been waiting so long

Just when we were wondering why we bother making music anymore…the talented kids at the W. Ross Macdonald School for the Blind & Visually impaired in Brantford ON do a fabulous cover of our holiday/hockey tune. We needed this right now. beyond touched and impressed. https://youtu.be/lRsNDP494Ow
