  • 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.
