I've wanted to do this for a while

But I could never find words worthy of you

Best I can do is tell it like it is

You've been gone for over a year

But I don't know how that can be

Because to me it feels like just yesterday you were taken from me

Those two words still cut like a knife

But the pain I feel doesn't even compare to that jagged edge

I always thought there would be time to tell you how I felt

I never knew I'd be more wrong

I didn't think this would be so hard

Being in this world without you

Guess I never thought it'd really happen

It's nights like this I miss you most

When I see your face

Hear your voice

And there's nothing there but open air

Feel like I can't take it

Can't even fake it

I try to laugh so they won't know

But the truth is I'm smiling to keep from crying

There are so many memories

Guess it's a good thing because that's all I have of you now

It was never so hard to say I miss you

Till you weren't there to say it to

They say that Christmas is for celebrating

But how can that be when it was the same time I couldn't feel a thing

It's nights like this I miss you most

When I see your face

Hear your voice

And there's nothing there but open air

I miss you more every day

But in no way does it compare to how I do this time of year

The air is getting colder & it seems everyone around here is too

Maybe it's just me because of what I lost

I lost more in one night than I did in the twelve years I had you

Maybe it just feels that way because it was you

It's nights like this I miss you most

When I see your face

Hear your voice

And there's nothing there but open air
