    A Christmas song for written my 14 month old son Theo.
    This special edition includes a 16 page PDF document with all the original artwork, lyric sheets, details of how the song was produced; as well as 3 early versions of "From Winter to Winter" to show the songwriting process, for those interested:
    Track 3 was recorded using Native Instruments' app iMaschine on an iPhone to record the very basic demo of the chorus.
    Tracks 4 and 5 show the early acoustic demo versions that were scrapped as the verse melody drifted off into what I believe to be another writer’s song, although I don’t actually know what it is: but I changed the melody anyway.
    This 5 track Special Edition is only £2.00, with a request that a donation is also made to the Pancreatic Cancer UK charity via the web-links below, in memory of Gary Radford who sadly passed away April 2012:

    Lyrics:
    We all get together on Christmas Eve
    Tellin stories, reliving the year, altogether.
    It is the time to be with the ones you love most from January to December... remember.
    On Christmas Day, I give to you - the whole year, wrapped with love.
    Four seasons there, for us to share - from winter to winter - Merry Christmas.
    There is snow on the ground and stars fill the sky,
    We're wrapped up waiting for sleigh bells tonight - Father Christmas - it's Christmas.
    And if you don't believe in Old Saint Nick, and you've lost the magic, then use your imagination.
    And if you can't imagine, then just remember Decembers when you were young:
    Gifts underneath the tree, songs with the family, a walk in the snow and then fall asleep watching TV.
    When the days drag on, but the seasons fly by, it won't be long before snow fills the sky - it's Christmas.
    And if we walk in each other's footprints tonight, we won't feel the cold, and we won't feel the frost bite; it's all right.

Track Name: From Winter to Winter
We all get together on Christmas Eve
Tellin stories, reliving the year, altogether.
It is the time to be with the ones you love most from January to December... remember.

On Christmas Day, I give to you - the whole year, wrapped with love.
Four seasons there, for us to share - from winter to winter - Merry Christmas.

There is snow on the ground and stars fill the sky,
We're wrapped up waiting for sleigh bells tonight - Father Christmas - it's Christmas.
And if you don't believe in Old Saint Nick, and you've lost the magic, then use your imagination.

And if you can't imagine, then just remember Decembers when you were young:
Gifts underneath the tree, songs with the family, a walk in the snow and then fall asleep watching TV.

When the days drag on, but the seasons fly by, it won't be long before snow fills the sky - it's Christmas.
And if we walk in each other's footprints tonight, we won't feel the cold, and we won't feel the frost bite; it's all right.
