When I’m Gone

“When I’m Gone” by Albert Hammond is one of my favorite songs.

Here’s the lyrics taken from elyrics.

When I’m gone
Will you take good care of everything?
Will you keep wearing your wedding ring? When I’m gone.

And when I’m gone
Will you take out all the photographs
Maybe spend a moment in the past? When I’m gone.

Will you miss me in the night?
Will your arms reach out to hold me tight
And keep me in your dreams
In your heart
In your life?

Sometimes I’ll wanna run to you like lovers do
When love is new and just for a moment be close to you
Pretending I’m still holding you.
And even when I’m far away the dreams will stay.
And someday
After we’ve both chased our fantasies
Love will bring you back to me.

When I’m gone
I’ll be thinking about you constantly
‘Cause you’re locked inside my memory from now on.

And I know that we said we needed time apart
But your love keeps pulling at my heart
Pulling strong.

Will you miss me in the night?
Will your arms reach out to hold me tight
And keep me in your dreams
In your heart
In your life?

Sometimes I’ll wanna run to you like lovers do . . .

Sometimes I’ll wanna run to you like lovers do . . .

Sometimes I’ll wanna run to you like lovers do . . .

This is a bitter-sweet song about breaking up but still trying to find love {love-struck}.
