It wouldn't matter to me

If there was snow falling

During this pre-Christmas week

There is no snow or rain or sky

Now that it's you who's gone

This night will be silent

Just like so many before

And even more since

All of these nights are silent now

Now that it's you who's gone

I've tried to express this

For I don't know how long

But not even these words

Seem worthy of you

I just wish you could hear them too

This night will be silent

Just like so many before

And even more since

All of these nights are silent now

Now that it's you who's gone
