This time next year I'll be home lighting candles Trying to just get on with my life And this time next year hope I'm through with the hurting Trying to get you out of my mind
So, don't try to play like you're not that concerned And don't try to say that your heart doesn't burn So, tell me
How can you say that our love isn't special? How can you say That our love wasn't true? And how can you say You can take it or leave it When I'm missing you and you know You'll be missing me, too?
[Chorus] This time next year I'll be out buying presents And something will remind me of you And this time next year I'll be out having dinner And run into some friends we both knew
Oh, don't try to play like you won't be concerned And don't try to say that your heart doesn't yearn Oh, tell me
Come early Christmas morning I'll be having my coffee and I'll think of you And the things we used to do And you know it will be breaking my heart Cause the holidays are special it will always play a part In my heart
