  1. This Year

From the recording This Year

This song was written in honor of my friend, Christopher David Terry. On January 6, 1999, David was shot and killed at a car wash in Bethany, Oklahoma. He was a mentor, teacher and a young man who loved the Lord.  Though he is dearly missed, we are 100% certain he looks down on us all, remembered with love.  He is survived by his mother, Carolyn, brother Michael and sister, Leanne.
Rest In Peace, my dear, sweet friend.

Lyrics

Verse# 1:The Christmas this year, won't be the sameThere's no presents with your name againThe snow will fall outside, but it can't hideThe pain I feel inside of meNew Years Eve, my heart still grievesI remember the way you smiled at meValentines Day, my heart went awayBut in my dream, I think of you, your love was true.Verse#2Easter morning comes, I thank God for His SonWho rose to give me hope todayChildren laugh and play, what can I sayI wish one of them belonged to you and meFourth of July, as fireworks flyI remember, the fire in your eyesThanksgiving Day, can't believe you went awayBut I'm thankful, I had the chance to say...to say, Oh,Lord,(This Year)
CHORUS:This year, I live for you, now that you're goneThis year, I live for you, there's nothingelse I can doAdlib:This year I'm gonna watch the sun rise, I'm gonna see the oceanas it sweeps toward the skyI'm gonna hear the children's laughter, a new born baby's cryI wish you were here this year
