Lyrics

Gone
By: Mel Stubbs
© 2006

I remember the times when you cried at night, and mommy went down to you.
I remember you riding on that little bike, talking like Scooby Doo.
Oh it was like yesterday, oh times just slips away.
I remember you running off to school one day, waving your hand goodbye.
I remember you pointing out that little boy, the one that caught your eye.
Oh it was like yesterday,
Oh time just slips away.

CHORUS:

And they?re gone.
And it?s only down to me and you.
With a house that just too big for two,
With empty rooms, and memories everywhere.
And they?re gone.
What do we do with all this time?
That we?ve been waiting on for a long, long time.
But they?re gone.

I remember you packing up that car of yours and heading off to school.
I remember giving you away at church. Time can be so cruel.
Oh it was like yesterday,
Oh time just slips away.

CHORUS:

And on that August night, the Lord came and took my wife away.
And I tried in vain; to some how erase the pain in me.

CHORUS:
And you?re gone,
Lord it?s only down to me and you
In a house that?s just too big for two,
With empty rooms,
And memories every where.
And their gone, what will I do with all this time
I?ve been waiting on for a long, long time.
But they?re gone.
Now they?re gone.
