about

Inspired by the photos of Christmas past...

lyrics

mages of Christmas (Ian M. Roure)

I fell into an old instamatic snap
Through the dyes and emulsions to Christmas past
The stereo played Winter Wonderland
As the reel to reel turned, rum & cokes in hand

Christmas cards tucked into the beams
Toasting the things we’d hoped would be
Sitting with George & Audrey & Grandma Lucy
Those lost to us now
Are all found inside these Images of Christmas

Greeting you at the door is your auntie Rose
She’s the queen of the party, and she knows…

Dressed in our gifted finery,
Watching the Queen on the T.V.
Send out the searching party; bring the Bacardi, Saint Bernard & cask
‘Cause I’m lost inside these Images of Christmas
Evening at the Ericsons', after supper’s done
Doreen played the ivories and carols they wuz sung…

Dressed in our gifted finery,
Watching the Queen on the T.V.
Send out the searching party; bring the Bacardi, Saint Bernard & cask
‘Cause I’m lost inside these Images of Christmas
