you’re gonna miss this

You’re Gonna Miss This
by Trace Adkins

She was staring out the window of that SUV
Complainin’, sayin’ “I can’t wait to turn 18”
She said, “I’ll make my own money, and I’ll make my own rules.”
Mamma put the car in park out there in front of the school
Then she kissed her head and said, “I was just like you.”

-Chorus-
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 a 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.
Daddy shakes his head and says, “Baby, just slow down”

-Chorus-
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 workin’ on the water heater,
Dog’s barkin’, phone’s ringin’
One kid’s cryin’, one kid’s screamin’
And she keeps apologizin’
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 …”

-Chorus-
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
