ANOTHER CHRISTMAS WITHOUT YOU

Home

Candles are everywhere
in the middle a tree.
Tons of presents:
The kids seem to be happy
but this
is another Christmas without you.

So I start to pray and wonder,
“How are you?”
‘Cause this is another Christmas without you.

It’s been 30 years, but it seems like yesterday
as you took you uniform and went away.

They kid asked where you are.
But I never knew what to answer and I still don’t know.

I am getting old… maybe grey
but I will never forget
as you said:
I will marry you – I will come back.

When will you come back?

It’s another Christmas without you and there is still no you.

Where are you?
Give me a sign ‘cause that’s another Christmas without you.

It’s cold outside and in my heart
‘cause you left and there is still no you.

Far away

Still without you,
I sit in a cold room:
no candle, no tree, no present.

I never forgot the sentence, “I will marry you I will come back.”
Your eyes shined
and your face had the prettiest smile I have ever seen.

I will never forget the days with my kids… the happiest in my life.
And I will never forget the day I first met you…

If they would only let me out of this cold dark room I could come back
to you and marry you

It’s another Christmas, without you.
I cannot be with you but I will never stop loving you and our kids.
Forgive me; I am not where I should be…

Another Christmas without you…
