Hey My fellow BIAB lovers...I'd really like you to listen to this one. I didn't think I'd write another song in 2020, but this one seemed to come together pretty easily. And I think it's one of the best songs I've written, but I'm my own worst critic, so I don't know. I value any opinions on here. I'm a kid of divorce and I recently found out that a beloved family member is going to go through one - with kids involved. That's where this song came from. Anyway, I'd love to know what you think, really. I wrote this song in BIAB using the _ANGLE.STY, then did some post production in Ableton. Merry Christmas all! I hope you're not missing anyone this holiday.

Lyrics:
ANOTHER CHRISTMAS WITHOUT YOU
written by m. mcgeehan

Never know what you’re missing
Till it’s taken away
You’re not here this Christmas
And we all feel the pain
Yeah I know what you’re thinking
This is just another Christmas song
But last year you were here with us
Right where you belong

Another Christmas without you
A Holiday of tears
We hope and pray, We’ll find a way
That you’ll be here next year

The whitest snow is falling
The way I fell for you
But then you went and said goodbye
It’s what you had to do

Another Christmas without you
A Holiday of tears
We hope and pray, We’ll find a way
That you’ll be here next year
The kids are missing you
And you know I miss you too

Another Christmas without you
A Holiday of tears
We hope and pray, We’ll find a way
That you’ll be here next year

SO well done, Michael. You really bring out the emotion with this one. Dang, I can't stop that tingly feeling that precedes tears. Beautifully done, man!
