about

I wrote this song over a year ago. We've performed it live (Ken Loney and I). But this year I wanted to do a professional recording. So once again the team of me, Ray Montford (producer, engineer and guitar virtuoso) teamed up with the piano magic of Steve O'Connor to produce this little Christmas number.

lyrics

It wouldn’t be Christmas without you

It wouldn't be Christmas without you
No joy to my world if you are not around
The stars won’t be shining, no people are singing
Cause it won’t be Christmas, without you...

People have Christmas wherever they go
Each in their own special way
A gift of the Magi, a heavenly choir
A babe in a manger, a man in a sleigh

But of all of things that make Christmas
I’ve traveled the world and its true
It could be Christmas wherever you go
It could be Christmas without the snow

But it wouldn’t be Christmas without you
No joy to my world if you are not around
No, it wouldn’t be Christmas without you
The stars won’t be shining, no people are singing
Cause it won’t be Christmas without you.

It’s been 33 years since that very first tree
And oh how those years have just flown
I treasure the gifts that you’ve given to me
The gift of your love, of our family - our home

It wouldn’t be Christmas without you
No joy to my world if you are not around
The stars won’t be shining, no people are singing
Cause it won’t be Christmas .without you..

about

Jim Love Ontario

I wrote my first song when I was about 14 with the line "write me, box nothing, Trans Canada Highway". A few months later, I ran away to Vancouver. The songs never stopped.

In my 20's a Juno nomination and gold album as a writer for a kid's band. A couple of musicals live and on CBC and a series of songs.

After 40 years I'm back with some of my best songs. Never too late.
