WOW, first of all, there are no words in the dictionary that could describe how thankful and grateful i am for all the wonderful words i've received for a simple ditty that was only expected to lift up one or two people.
I never would've thought that it would come this far in this big ocean of videos.
I have read all of your comments/messages and i sincerely apologize for not replying to everyone sooner. As mentioned in my previous video, i have been cut off the internet for a bit and i lack the time to do so.
Although, that doesnt change the fact that i am touched beyond words by all the lovely things everyone has left for me.
That being said, it's the best Christmas gift i've ever received.
So thank you thank you thank you, to all subscribers, and YouTube, for the feature.
I hope everyone's had/will have a good Christmas and a blessed New Year.
PS: I will be replying to everyone as soon as i can.
Don't be fooled by the title, this one has a happy ending. All in the good spirit of Christmas.
I wrote this one a few weeks ago, and recorded it last night.
This song was inspired by everything i've experienced/read/watched/heard of from movies or stories, about one's lover being far away for Christmas, be it serving in the army, college, another country, peace corps etc... In a way, it's also about not losing hope.
Although that's just my opinion, so do share yours.
The words in this one are simple and direct. I do hope everyone will enjoy it.
I stayed with the 'silent movie feel' as i think it suits the song.
It is a bit too early, but as i said, i dont know when i'll be able to post next, but if i do, it'll be another Christmas cover. So stay tuned!
Merry Christmas to all of my wonderful subscribers and listeners.

No, there won't be Christmas for me this year
For the simple reason being you're not here
There won't be eggnogs by the cozy fire
There won't be glasses of mulled wine either
There won't even be a Christmas tree
'cause you're not here to light it up with me
Oh, Santa honey, won't you bring my baby back to me?
'cause i miss him, yes, i miss him oh so dearly
I haven't sent him his Christmas card
'cause that would mean we really are apart
The Christmas stockings are as empty as my heart
I know you're away doing something good
But just this once, baby, if you could
You know you can, and you know should
'cause Christmas won't be Christmas...
Two days to Christmas and i'm still waiting outside
Wishing upon a star that you'll be coming home tonight
But it was cold, it was getting late
Sadly, i crept back into bed
But then i felt a soft kiss on my cheek
I opened my eyes, and there my baby was...
My baby came back for me
Merry Christmas, baby
