The holidays just aren't as happy
because your not here
We don't feel like a complete family
even after all these years
I'm thankful for the time
you and me got to spend
The holidays just don't feel right
and I doubt they ever will again

All the traditions that we had
that made the holidays
I just want them back
so there's cause to celebrate
I don't feel like laughing
this season really hurts
The holidays just aren't as happy
in fact they are the worst

There's so much your going to miss
and so much I want to share
The only wish on my wish list
is just to have you there
The holidays just aren't as happy
but I will have to make it through
So just one last thing
Happy Holidays I love and miss you
