When I'm Gone - Andre Bisson (Bad Scene - 2013)

Written By: Andre Bisson

Bright shining love oh it seemed like yesterday.
Oh how they've faded with time.
It’s the same old story darling yes we've heard it all before
She had her plans and I just didn't know mine
And when we'd walk down the street, with every glance we'd meet with a sadness behind her eyes
girl you've done nothing wrong, but in your heart you know you've got to move on but me baby you're gonna miss me when you’re gone.

You’re gonna miss me you're gonna miss me
Though in your heart you know you've gotta move on
gonna hit some cold lonely nights, in the end I know I’ll be alright
But you baby, you’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

Been a long long long time since I’ve been out on my own
And the emptiness tears me up inside
It'll take some time to heal these wounds and still you say you'll be alright but no one misses the water, till the well runs dry
You were right to set me free, in the end its they way it’s gotta be
Oh I learned my lesson, long ago
but on those cold lonely night when you're all alone no one to hold you tight that when baby you’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
