When I'm Gone Lyrics

A bright sunrise will contradict
The heavy fog that weighs you down.

In spite of all the funeral songs,
The birds will make their joyful sounds.

You'll wonder why the Earth still moves.
You'll wonder how you'll carry on.

But you'll be okay on that first day when I'm gone.

Dusk will come with fireflies and whipoorwill and crickets call.

And every star will take it's place
In silv'ry gown and purple shawl

You'll lie down in our big bed
Dread the dark and dread the dawn.
But you'll be alright on that first night when I'm gone.

You will reach for me in vain.
You'll be whispering my name

As if sorrow were your friend
And this world so alien

But life will call with daffodils
And morning glorious blue skies.

You'll think of me--some memory
And softly smile to your surprise.

And even though you love me still, you will know where you belong.

Just give it time. We'll both be fine when I'm gone

I just lost my best friend, my husband of 15 years to cancer the 24th of November. Every word of this song has meaning and hope.
