I Want to Spend Christmas with You

Story Behind The Song

I wrote this song thinking of my parents circa 1950s-60s, and how romantic they were. From the moment this song started forming at my Steinway, I wanted to write and produce it in such a way that immediately immerses the listener in the warmth of cozy romantic firelight.

Song Description

There's a new classic-style Christmas song in town! This romantic holiday ballad is produced here in the venerable tradition of mid-century vintage crooners like Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby. The studio recording features former MJJ recording artist Michael Civisca on vocals , with the intentional simplicity of a jazz trio. I own all rights, PRO is ASCAP. https://soundcloud.com/jeff-burger/i-want-to-spend-christmas-with-you Thanks for listening!

Lyrics

Snow falls outside our window
Friends are all waiting, we really should go
It's that time of year to spread good cheer
But the best rendezvous is only with you

Why don't we skip the parties
Let's linger here, just you and me
There's no better way to celebrate
We can conspire on one desire
Together at home, alone by the fire

Christmas time
With candles and wine
Making mem'ries just for two
At Christmas time
One thing on my mind
I want to spend Christmas with you

Stay with me through the twilight
'Cause these shorter days make longer nights
In the afterglow of the mistletoe
Spend this Noel under love's spell

Gifts wait by the Yule tree
But, darlin', you are all that I need
Because you define the best of times
So let's steal away this holiday
Nestled up close in our own hideaway

Christmas time
With candles and wine
Making mem'ries just for two
At Christmas time
One thing on my mind
I want to spend Christmas with you

Firelight shimmering
Tree lights glimmering
But the best part of these nights
Are all the candles on the mantle
Sparkling in your eyes

(At) Christmas time
With candles and wine
Making mem'ries just for two
At Christmas time
One thing on my mind
I want to spend Christmas with you
I want to spend Christmas with you
I want to spend my Christmas with you
