This time, you won’t be here to see the lights on our tree
This time, you won’t be here as we stay up late on Christmas eve so
What good are all the gifts? The ornaments and lights? If you’re not here by my side
This time, December felt like any other time of year
This time, should Santa even bother coming down our fireplace? ‘cause
What good are holiday cards?
And the carols we sing by heart
If you’re not here by my side
Here by my side
Who knew what we had in store?
Learn how to love from afar,
So suddenly we’ve learned to be apart
This time, my only wish is that you’re not a million miles away
