Every day I try to see
the closeness that your promised me,
fades away,
it fades away.

Every night I try to dream
of what you wanted me to be,
in your life,
in your life.

Every dawn the light that wakes you up
will remind you of my touch.
that you miss so much.

What if i died tomorrow?
would you miss me here?
What if i cried tomorrow?
Would you shed your tears?

Every time you think about
the things you said
remind yourself im gone. ( im gone)

I hope you take this as a lesson learned.
Tomorrow isn't promised (nothing's promised.)

Every hour, every day gone by,
you'll cry for me,
you'll cry for me.

What if I died tomorrow?
would you miss me here?
What if I cried tomorrow?
Would you shead your tears?


A story's just been told that has happened yet.
Just a tragic foreshadowing
of what could happen to you.


Think before you speak,
it could be the last time ( the last time)
you ever speak to him.


What if I died tomorrow?
would you miss me here?
What if I cried tomorrow?
Would you shead your tears?


A story's just been told that has happened yet.
Just a tragic foreshadowing
of what could happen...

    General CommentI love this song I'll break it down.

    "Every day I try to see
    the closeness that your promised me,
    fades away,
    it fades away.

    Every night I try to dream
    of what you wanted me to be,
    in your life,
    in your life."
    I think thats about the guy thinking about a past realtionship and how he tried so hard to be the person she wanted him to be, but he felt like he couldn't measure up to her expections

    "Every dawn the light that wakes you up
    will remind you of my touch.
    that you miss so much."
    He knows that the girl misses him, but she doesn't do anything about it.

    "Every time you think about
    the things you said
    remind yourself im gone. ( im gone)

    I hope you take this as a lesson learned.
    Tomorrow isn't promised (nothing's promised.)"
    This is about her thinking about him as if he's passed away. It's in the future sense. It hasn't happened but it's what she'd do if it did. 'Hope you take this as a lesson learned/tomorrow isn't promised' is basically saying "do what your heart tells you to do, because tomorrow may be a day too late and you may never get to say what you want to the people you love"

    "A story's just been told that has happened yet.
    Just a tragic foreshadowing
    of what could happen to you.


    Think before you speak,
    it could be the last time ( the last time)
    you ever speak to him."
    And that's basically saying that it hasn't happened yet, but what if it does.. Make sure you make every moment count because you never know when a moment can be your last.
