TRACE ADKINS


You're Gonna Miss This Lyrics

She was staring out the window, of that, SUV
Complaining saying I can't wait to turn 18
She said I'll make my own money, and I'll make my own rules
Mama put the car in park out there in front of the school
And she kissed her head, and said I was just like you

You're gonna miss this, you're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days, hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times, so take a good look around
You may not know it now, but you're gonna miss this

Before she knows it, she's a, brand new bride
In her one bedroom apartment, and her daddy stops by
He tells her it's a nice place, she says, it'll do for now
Starts talking about babies, and buying a house
And daddy shakes his head, and says baby just slow down

'Cause you're gonna miss this, you're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days, hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times, so take a good look around
You may not know it now, but you're gonna miss this

Five years later there's a plumber, working on the water heater
Dog's barking, phone's ringing, one kid's crying one kid's screaming
And she keeps apologizing, he says they don't bother me
I've got two babies of my own, one's 36, one's 23
Huh, it's hard to believe

But you're gonna miss this, you're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days, hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times, so take a good look around
You may not know it now, but you're gonna miss this
You're gonna miss this, yeah you're gonna miss this

Some men not grown quite yet dont get it, but for the most of us women we do.I try to tell my 21 old son, since he turned a teenager to slow down and enjoy the ride, because one day you will miss this
