You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone


Today is the same as tomorrow

And today is the same as yesterday

You woke up like you did before

And you decided to put a smile on your face

 

Seconds turned to minutes

And minutes turned into hours that forever last

And you push things on til tomorrow

Because you know how much time you have

 

I ask you for your attention

You slowly push me away

You say you don’t have time today

You say I have to wait

 

Then tomorrow comes

As so many tomorrows came before

And I am still left waiting

Waiting for you again once more

 

Today is the same as tomorrow

And today is the same as yesterday

You woke up like you did before

And you decided to put a smile on your face

 

Seconds turned to minutes

And minutes turned into hours that forever last

And you push things on til tomorrow

Because you know how much time you have

 

But my time is slowly fading

And soon my time will run out

And I will probably be still waiting

And you  will claim that you couldn’t make the time

 

But you’re gonna miss me when it’s said and done

You will miss me terribly so

When you realize that the time you had

With me would be so short

 

You’re gonna miss me when you close your eyes

You’re gonna wish you had spent more time

But none of that will matter

Because my body will be long gone

 

The smell of my skin

The way I giggled and laughed

The way I told you about my future

The way I spoke of things in the past

 

The softness of my lips

The I love you’s when you were down

You will miss my physical presence

And my voice, you’ll miss the sound

 

Today is the same as tomorrow

And today is the same as yesterday

You woke up like you did before

And you decided to put a smile on your face

 

Seconds turned to minutes

And minutes turned into hours that forever last

And you push things on til tomorrow

Because you know how much time you have

 

But I don’t have that much time left

My days are almost in the past

Don’t keep pushing me to the side

Because your time with me won’t last
