How It All Began (Cherie Call) A busy street is sparkling, and Santa Claus is ringing a bell while people Hustle by the twinkle lights in the snowy night, they carry their bags and boxes There’s mistletoe and candles glow, all for a night far away and so long ago When a man and his wife searched through the streets For a soft place to rest and it turned out to be Just a stable with hay That’s where they laid a new baby That’s how it all began Now there’s candy canes and window panes are painted with the scenes from a light filled manger There’s gingerbread and slippery sleds and parties where the children sing old time carols And Christmas trees are shimmering and way at the top there’s a sign from so long ago When a star in the sky glistened and gleamed And then journeys began for wise men and kings And the angels proclaimed for shepherds to seek for a baby That’s how it all began Hearts get a little more tender Whenever we start to remember And the lights and the candles glow brighter And the songs are so full of delight for The king of all kings and the promise of peace And we all can rejoice and fall to our knees for the chance for new life that all came to be from a baby That’s how it all began ©2018 Mendonhouse Music (ASCAP)

Christmas Crush (Cherie Call) It’s a snowy night, crazy and quiet at the same time Just like this heart of mine, secretly pounding with you right by my side I slide and slip on the icy streets And my heartbeat skips when you grab me So I don’t fall down, but you don’t know that I’m long gone Darlin I fear if you look too close you’ll know it’s true I’ve got a Christmas crush on you My cheeks get rosy red, I’m blaming it all on the chilly air You’re trying not to stare, so you look away and them we both start laughing And then I’m all lit up like the street lamps At the sidewalk sale, you ask me to dance As the carols play, and everything’s crowded but there’s just you Darlin I fear if you look too close you’ll know it’s true I’ve got a Christmas crush on you I swear that I never told a soul But I’m starting to think maybe you already know I don’t know how the word gets around Somehow it’s the talk of the town, or it seems I’m an open book Take a good look and you’ll know it’s true I’ve got a Christmas crush on you ©2018 Mendonhouse Music (ASCAP)

Come Home 03:03
Come Home (Cherie Call) I’m holding out for a miracle this Christmas Only a few days left and we’ve got the perfect snow Baby you and I don’t live on 34th street But I still think we’ve got some magic of our own Come home, baby, I’ve been waiting I miss you more than you could ever know Stars are gleaming, and the kids are dreaming Baby, all that’s left is for you to come home Staying up late isn’t all that fun without you I’ve watched all the hallmark shows and I’ve eaten all the junk food I just wish that you were here for me to talk to And these arms just feel so empty all alone Come home, baby, I’ve been waiting I miss you more than you could ever know Stars are gleaming, and the kids are dreaming Baby, all that’s left is for you to come home The only Christmas lights I need Are your headlights in the driveway just in time Come home, baby, I’ve been waiting I miss you more than you could ever know Stars are gleaming, and the kids are dreaming Baby, all that’s left is for you to come home ©2018 Mendonhouse Music (ASCAP)

All About The Baby (Lyndy Butler/Cherie Call) Three wise men from far, far away They knew just what to give the baby on His birthday And the little drummer boy wrote the baby a song and he played it to the beat of his heart And all the little towns have Christmas pageants And the kids do their best playing every part Chorus: And I still believe that love is the gift that the baby needs Even when He grows to be a king And I still believe that angels hover near when the children sing, "Peace on earth", "Away in a Manger", it's all about the baby And love is all He needs A glittered pinecone, a picture of a lamb So many simple gifts made tenderly by tiny hands And the kindness in a heart shines as bright as the star of Bethlehem from long ago And all the world seems a little bit softer All wrapped up in a blanket of snow (chorus) And I give my heart to him every day Though the boy in the hay has long since risen (chorus) credits released July 15, 2016 written by Lyndy Butler (Lucky Bird Music ASCAP) and Cherie Call (Mendonhouse Music ASCAP) ©2016
