Description
A song inspired by recents thoughts of my late mum and dad. Still missed after almost 20 years, especially at this time of year. Unusually for me this is a guitar and driven song. Even more unusually I wrote and sang some lyrics.

Lyrics
When I was just a young boy
My parents said to me
That Christmas isn’t what it used to be
But still they made it special
With every kind of treat
Made sure we had toys
And festive food to eat

And Christmas isn’t the same
Now you’re gone
At Christmas it isn’t the same
Now you’re gone
But now you’re gone

I remember all the things you said
All the little things you did
Just to make it special for me
Early night on Christmas Eve
Cannot sleep cause I believe
Santa’s got a present for me
I want to stay up and see
At Christmas

And now that I’ve grown older
With children of my own
We try to make the memories
So even when they’ve flown
They remember parties
And starring in a play
Eating too much dinner
And walks on Christmas Day

And Christmas isn’t the same
Now you’re gone
At Christmas it isn’t the same
Now you’re gone
But now you’re gone

I remember all the things you said
All the little things you did
Just to make it special for me
Early night on Christmas Eve
A reindeer sleigh, yeah I believe
Will soon be flying high
Across a starry sky
At Christmas

And Christmas it isn’t the same
Now you’re gone
But now you’re gone

I remember all the things you said
All the little things you did
Even though I knew all along
So gather round the Christmas tree
Raise a glass to you and me
And join me in singing a song
For everyone that’s gone
At Christmas
