Do you ever feel like you breathe in a time era? Feeling nostalgic may be a better term, but 80 years ago families just like ours did the very same things...they shared the joy of Christmas. A footprint in time, an echo that shall never cease.

When writing this song we wanted two things, a pop record and capturing that happiness of years gone by. Look for one person each time you watch this and smile, because their life touched yours so many years later.

We hope and pray you enjoy this captured old footage from public domain, which can never be perfect like todays videos, but wouldn't it be better to live back in this time era with the perceived imperfections? Take us back to Jimmy Stewart, when Bing was singing Irving!


Echoes in Time
(Gentry, Siregar & Swan)

Stockings by the fireplace, the family at the door embrace,
with the sounds of Christmas, a-playin' on the radio
a-Gingerbread and mistletoe, hot cider in the fallin' snow
with the Christmas lights a-shinin' as bright as the stars

Twas the season for believin', there was singin' with Perry Como
All the children were a -sleepin', sharin' dreams of Christmas morning
Candles round the window sill, a-warmin' from the Christmas chill
We hear the bells a-soundin', their echoes in time

Take us back to Jimmy Stewart, where Bing was singin' Irving
With Macy's parade and the kids a-smilin' on 34th street
When love was alive, we'll never forget the voices that echo in time

Shopping in department stores, a-dancin' on the high school floor
A festive celebration from Heaven above
Twas the season filled with reason, we hear singin' in Beach Boy harmony, ow-ohhhhh ohhhh, bring us back to Christmas Baby

From Rockefeller to Times Square, from Boise to Delaware
Through every generation, echoes in time
