When I'm Gone

By Bruce Clifford

I'm coming in from out of the ages
I've been alone and playing with fire
What you don't know can't hurt you
All these melodies can make you tired

I don't think you'll miss me when I'm gone
You will forget me in a instant and your life will carry on
The truth has always been with you, and must take this blame
You will forget my kindness, forget my face and forget my name
When I'm gone

I'm coming in from out of the cold
I've been empty for all of these years
They took my memories they took my soul
When you hurt is when I feel real tears
All through the years

I don't think you will miss me when when I'm gone
You will forget me in an instant and you won't recall our song
The truth has always been with you no matter what they say
You will forget my energy, forget my face and resourceful ways
When I'm gone

8/13/12 Bruce Clifford
