Toni Braxton – This Time Next Year lyrics

Written by babyface, david foster, toni braxton

This time next year I'll be home lighting candles
Tryin' to just get on with my life...
And this time next year hope I'm through
With the hurtin'
Tryin' to get you out of my mind...

So, don't try to play like you're not that concerned
And don't try to say that your heart doesn't burn
So, tell me

How can you say that our love isn't special?
How can you say
That our love wasn't true?
And how can you say
You can take it or leave it
When I'm missing you and you know
You'll be missing me, too?

This time next year I'll be out buying presents
And something will remind me of you...
And this time next year I'll be out having dinner
And run into some friends we both knew...

Oh, don't try to play like you won't be concerned
And don't try to say that your heart doesn't yearn
Oh, tell me


Come early christmas morning
I'll be having my coffee and I'll think of you
And the things we used to do
And you know it will be breaking my heart...
'cause the holidays are special
It will always play a part
In my heart...
