I wish you could be here

Looking from my window
On the freshly fallen snow
That sparkles as it tumbles
Upon the streets below
And the crackle of the fire
Is laughing in my ear
And the room is warm and sleepy
Oh, I wish you could be here

Sundays in this town
There's not a lot for me to do
I've been listening to some records
But my thoughts return to you
Oh, I try to read the paper
But the words aren't very clear
And I know there's something missing
I wish you could be here

I keep listening for your footsteps
Or the key turned in the door
I sure could use your company
But I've said all that before
And the winter's going to last
A long time this year
I've got lots of empty time to fill
And I wish you could be here
