about

In her 2015 yearly Christmas single, Swedish Americana songstress Sofia Talvik takes on Bruce Springsteen, Jason Isbell and all the other men singing about the working man.
"It's time to sing about the working woman" Talvik says.
The song is about a hard working single mother the day before Christmas, and her thoughts and longings about a better life for herself and her kids, trying to make the best of what she has.

Swedish folk meets Nashville in this new single which features a haunting violin played by Hanna Ekström and bright guitars by Sofia Talvik.
Talvik who releases a Christmas single every year has made it her trademark to sing about the less cheery part of the holiday season.
"This is my tribute to all hard working women out there", Talvik says.

Merry Christmas!

about

Sofia Talvik Gothenburg, Sweden

Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, a North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy, creating a special niche of folk music that has been described as neo-folk. She is a veteran performer with 6 original full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her. ... more

Track Name: Cold Cold Feet
She put her money in her pocket
thirteen dollars fifty cents
Not enough to put a turkey on the table
not enough to pay the rent

She passed the goodwill on the corner
of Lamar and fourteenth street
She thought about those little ones and how she
never seemed to have enough to warm

Those cold cold feet
cold cold feet

Tomorrow’s Christmas morning
she wishes she could be around
to see their smiles as they are opening the presents
that she got at lost and found

But they won’t eat unless she’s working
trying her best to make ends meet
And though she takes those extra shifts
there never seems to be enough to warm

Those cold cold feet
cold cold feet

She puts a blanket on her baby
She puts her money in a jar
Maybe one day there’ll be enough to
buy herself a car
And they can leave this place behind them
They can leave this poor old street
Go somewhere south where winter’s milder
And she doesn’t have to work so hard to warm those

cold cold feet
cold cold feet
