I wrote the song in 1984 and finally recorded it twenty-five years later in 2009. It was released as a single on iTunes and on CDBaby.com in December 2010. It is also included as a bonus track on my CD album What Difference Will It Make released in July 2012. The song as well as my two CD albums and individual songs from both are available at iTunes, cdbaby.com, cavernofdreams.com and neilwyoung.com.


Here comes another Christmas, it’s such a happy time of year
All the stores are playing Christmas music and children wait to sit on Santa’s knee
But I just miss you more and more with every Christmas song that I hear
I think of all the things we did together, that’s what Christmas means to me

You were my Christmas, you were my decorated tree
All those things we did together that’s what Christmas means to me

Frosty snowflakes gently falling, Santa’s coming soon
He’ll just go right past our house when he sees your empty room
It’s going to be a blue, blue Christmas when all I have is just my memories
I’ll think of all the things we did together, that’s what Christmas means to me

You were my Christmas, you were my decorated tree
All those things we did together that’s what Christmas means to me

Christmas morning you can find me in a melancholy blue state of mind
Every Christmas decoration reminds me of all those happy times
Oh how I wish you could surprise me, I dream I might wake up and find
Your Christmas stocking filled with Santa’s presents
And you home again with me at Christmas time
Oh how I wish you could surprise me, I dream I might wake up and find
Your Christmas stocking filled with Santa’s presents
And you home again with me at Christmas time

This songwriter feels the truth in life's moments. This song about Christmas hits home and it hits deep into the feelings of missing someone at Christmas. Very easy going and pure, sort of like a member of the family singing under the Christmas tree on a snowing evening by the fire place.
