Wandering Words

Bruce Kilarski

You know I’ll Miss you if You’re Gone


When your life is walking heavy

But it refuses to make a sound,

And it looks like you’re still living

When you’re six feet under ground,

And the storms are rising higher

Behind the shelters of the town,

When you can’t find what’s right

‘Cause so much seems so wrong,

You know I’ll miss you

If you’re gone.


When you’re the last to join the party

And you just can’t wait to leave,

When the sidewalk is walking for you

But it’s pulling off your sleeves,

When your home is where your heart is

But it just blew off in the breeze,

When you’re afraid to pull the curtain

And sing just one more song,

You know I’ll miss you

If you’re gone.


When your father loves his bottles

More than he’s ever loved himself,

And he fondles golden idols

That he keeps hidden on a shelf,

When he thinks you’re his princess

But all you really need is help,

If you think you’ve kept it hidden

Deep inside for way too long,

You know I’ll miss you

If you’re gone.


When you find he’s thinking of you

So you meet him in his room,

And you think that he can pull you

Far away from all that gloom,

Then he tells you you’re an angel

But he says it much too soon,

If you find you’re broken-hearted

And you cry out on the lawn

You know I’ll miss you

If you’re gone.


When you try and find a handle

To hold on to what you know,

And the things that mean the most

Are all buried in the snow,

And you’re sure there’s one direction

But you just can’t seem to go,

When you’re tired of the chess board

When you’re the only pawn,

You know I’ll miss you

If you’re gone.
