ONLY WHEN IíM GONE

 

At times I try to sit and talk

        To you about some things

And tell you that I often think

Of what the future brings

But I donít think you even see

How things are now tonight

For if you looked at us youíd see

That things are not alright

 

CHORUS

I guess if you cannot see

Then you canít understand

You say itís only me who see

Things the way I can

For me it is so plain to see

Whatís missing for so long

I wonder if youíll finally see

Only when Iím gone

 

        You probably saw I posted

On the refrigerator door

Thought maybe we might do some things

Like we used to before

Iím hoping I might find my way

Back into your heart

And try to stop what we once had

From falling all apart

 

CHORUSÖ      
I guess if you cannot see

Then you canít understand

You say itís only me who see

Things the way I can

For me it is so plain to see

Whatís missing for so long

I wonder if youíll finally see

Only when Iím gone
