"If This Is Christmas" is one of the three exclusive bonus tracks included in the third disc of this special digipack combo, the reissue of rare Michael's debut album "Cross That Line". Lyric video thanks to Yellow Bang Studio.

Michael says: " 'If This Is Christmas' is about a very young boy hoping for his father to come home for Christmas. He didn’t come home for that Christmas and neither for the Christmases to come. That was very hard for this young boy to understand and it took him many years to realize that when parents doesn’t live together anymore, dad might not be a part of Christmas".

The digital cover, designed appositely by Aeglos Art (Raintimes, Airbound, Room Experience, Firmo), reflects instead a classic Christmas image, offering to the listener an unexpected contrast between the typical Christmas portraits, and the story told by the refined but sad lyrics written by Michael.
