"Got 'till It's Gone" as written by Kamaal Ibn John Fareed, Joni Mitchell, Desree Annette Weekes, Janet Jackson, James Samuel Iii Harris, Terry Steven Lewis and Michael Graves....
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone

Have a feelin', now believin'
That you were the one
I was meant to be with
Oh, how I'm wishin'
Thinkin', dreamin' 'bout you
And the love, how'd I let you get away?
Got 'til it's gone
Got 'til it's gone

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone

If I could turn back hands of time
Make you fall in love
In love with me again
So would you give me another chance to love?
To love you, love you the right way
No games
Got 'til it's gone
Got 'til it's gone

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's
Yeah, let me just fuck with it for a minute
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone

Now you are realizing when the nights go long, right
Campaign for me to stay
When you know that I'm gone, right
You act all wild
When I tell you to settle
I was working 'round the clock
But you girls want to meddle
Talkin' about, I heard he swims with his chick on the beach

That was out with the tide
But my love you impeached
Now you lookin' at the walls
Head in hand, cold jonezin'
Ringing my house
Hang up and posing

Now why you wanna go and do that?
Love huh
Now why you wanna go and do that?
And do that? Huh
Now why you wanna go and do that?
Love huh
Now why you wanna go and do that?
And do that? Huh

Now why you wanna go and do that?
Love huh
Now why you wanna go and do that?
And do that? Huh
Now why you wanna go and do that?
Love huh
Now why you wanna go and do that?
And do that? And do that?

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone

That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
Dust

    General CommentHave you ever like someone so much that you are afraid to tell that person because you think you'll be rejected? And then they never find out and start dating someone else and you end up kicking your ass for not having the guts to tell that person. Well this song has something to do with that.

    General Commentwell to me it just means that you don't realise what a person means to you as long as you have this person's love for sure. And when it's over you realise what you had and how you miss this person. "You don't know what you got till it's gone" - try to cherish the love you have BEFORE it's too late and not when it's too late.

    General CommentIt's about a relationship. You take it for granted and can't stay clear of the drama. He gets fed up, dumps you. And now you cry because you know it was all your fault and you ruined a good thing.

    General CommentSong is from 1997 or 98. I knew it from then and I discovered it on an old disc again this year - since then I keep running the smooth track pretty often.

    I agree to the opinion of the preposts about their interpretation of the lyrics
