Lyrics

I count the years in jingle bells and gentle silent nights

My memory magnifies the love and disregards the fights

Tis the season it's the thought that counts and counting thoughts I find more than a few are of you

Another Christmas you're not here, it's the hardest time of year

I know you won't be coming back, still it's hard to face the fact

The kids are getting older and it's harder to surprise

But you can still see some christmas magic if you look deep into their eyes

And there are times I feel it too and there are times I realize you're not coming home

Another Christmas and you're not here, it's the hardest time of year

I know I won't see you again; if not now, then when

It happened once, a miracle, around this time of year

it's way too much to ask for another one I fear

So I look around see I'm surrounded by love and know I'm blessed

Needs, or even wants, to list just one I'd be hard pressed

Still I can't help missing one merry gentleman God rests tonight

Another christmas you're not here it's the hardest time of year

I know you won't be coming back still it's hard to face the fact

Another christmas and you're not here
