We Shot The Moon When I'm Gone Lyrics

Last updated: 08/13/2012 08:05:21 PM

I saw my life as an hourglass

A grain of sand was an hour passed

And you were there standing next to me

Against the walls of eternity 

You turned to me but I looked away

The saddest word written on your face


And I couldn't say what I was waiting for

So I felt the walls for an open door
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

When I awoke, you were next to me

I held my breath; you were still asleep

As I remembered the strangest dream

It came together and came to me


That I never knew what you were looking for

So I kept my eye on that open door

You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
Gonna miss me when I'm gone
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
Gonna miss me when I'm gone

Here's a word that never was spoken

Here's a promise you should have broken

I took the blame then next you were leaving

I pour a drink to block out the feeling

On a bus away from the city

Headed east across the country

Hit the coast, and I started laughing

You're going to miss me when I'm gone

Don't you ever think you were unworthy 

I took the blame when I took a bow


I am alone for the rest of my journey

However long I will be allowed

You're gonna miss me when I'm gone.
