Over her extensive career, Pamela has also written songs for and with a wide range of other artists, including Wynonna Judd, Jim Peterik, Yanni and Buffy Lawson, and has co-written tracks with fellow songwriters such as Pam Tillis and Bobby E. Boyd.

Regarding “The Only Gift I Need,” Pamela reminisces, “I wrote this song about what truly defines Christmas in my heart. Precious time with my family and friends. Strangers smiling and wishing each other ‘Happy Holidays.’ Singing ‘Silent Night’ on Christmas Eve at Church while holding a candle especially reminds me of my Grandma who is no longer with us. But her presence and the presence of all I’ve loved and who have left is felt at Christmas most of all. Even though I enjoy everything about the holidays – from the lights to the music to gift giving to food and cookies – those special moments I celebrate most.”

“Secret Silent Night’ reminds the listener of the emotional struggle children can face during the changing of seasons. The song opens to longing memories of warm summer nights, where family celebrations and playdates with friends happened often as daylight stretched until bedtime. As this child looks on to shortened days and longer nights, they have strong emotions around the change and experience loneliness. With her uplifting lyrics paired with a joyous melody, Pamela provides comfort and hope to those who feel sadness during the cold winter months. She reminds listeners that once December arrives, the world will be full of beautiful decorations and bright colored lights to cure their sorrow.

“This song is for the kid who may feel lonely or out of place, but who is reminded of the wonder, joy and possibilities of life when they see the glow of holiday lights. I think about being a kid and coming home on the bus after school when it was dark out and feeling my heart lift as I saw the houses all lit up on the route home. It really mattered to me,” says Pamela McNeill about “Secret Silent Night.”

Preview the lyrics of “The Only Gift I Need” below:

“Santa don’t you worry about me

Oh yes, I still believe

If I sing ‘Silent Night’ in the candlelight

On Christmas Eve

That’s the only gift I need

Gathered close to those I love

There’s a joy I try to hold on to

And as time goes by there’s nothing quite as sweet

As moments like these

I know the way things are won’t last forever

I miss the ones no longer here

But they are with us in the Spirit

And the songs we hold dear – they are always near”
