You're Gonna Miss This

Get this because I can hardly believe it myself. I was at the gym at about 5:30 a.m. this morning and was about 5 minutes into my workout on the treadmill. Like I sometimes do, I was listening to CMT music videos (seems like it's the only time I have to watch TV). Anyhow, so I'm watching the videos and the Trace Adkin's song, You're Gonna Miss This comes on the TV. I've got my headphones on and although I've heard this song many times before, I can honestly say that I've never listened to the words like I did today. And when I did, I became a blubbering idiot walking on the treadmill. I mean, seriously, I was crying. This song struck me so hard and I almost couldn't pull myself together. My only saving grace from absolute embarrassment was that I was also sweating so hopefully the tears were well masked. I had to share it with all of you so you can appreciate the lyrics. I've not heard a song more true than this.


She was staring out the window of their SUV
Complaning, saying "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"
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"
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 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 2 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"
