You're Gonna Miss This   Trace Adkins


She was staring out the window of their SUV
Complaning, saying "I can't wait to turn 18"
She said "I'll make my own money, 
and I'll make my own rules"
Mamma put the car in park 
out there in front of the school
Then she kissed her head and said 
"I was just like you"

You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days 
hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this

Before she knows it 
she's a brand new bride
In a one-bedroom apartment, 
and her daddy stops by
He tells her "It's a nice place"
She says "It'll do for now"
Starts talking about babies and buying a house
Daddy shakes his head and says 
"Baby, just slow down"

Cause you're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days 
hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this

Five years later there's a plumber workin' 
on the water heater
Dog's barkin', phone's ringin'
One kid's cryin', one kid's screamin'
And she keeps apologizin'
He says "They don't bother me.
I've got 2 babies of my own.
One's 36, one's 23.
Huh, it's hard to believe, but...

You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these 
days hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
