I woke up at 5 am
Hearing your voice again
But it was just the tv
Coming from the other room
Your half empty coffee cup
Sitting right where it was
I almost moved it last night
But it didn't feel right
It's too soon
It's too soon
It still feels like

*Chorus*
You were just here
You were just holding me
I was alright
I never would have believed
That you'd go away
That you could just disappear
When you were just here

The calendar on the wall
Doesn't miss you at all
It still says you'll be there
With us all on Christmas Eve
The picture you hung last week
Keeps staring back at me
There we are still laughing
Like nothing ever happened
Well I still feel you in the air
It's not fair
It's not fair

*Chorus*

I reach out and you're not there
But I still feel you everywhere
No matter how much I tried
How hard I cried
It still feels like
You were just here
You were just holding me
I was alright
I never would have believed
That you'd go away
That you could just disappear
When you were just here
You were just here
You were just here

    This song is very touching and sad. It is most likely meant as a tribute to a loved one of Jo Dee's who passed away, and she can still feel his/her presence around her even though she knows he/she is no longer here. It's an extremely painful feeling. I definitely get close to tears when I hear this song.
