Don't let anybody tell you who you are; don't let anyone tell you that you don't deserve what you're willing to work for.
Never give up; you\'ll never know how far you could go until you try to get to where you want to go.


You trade your vows
declare your love
you'll be together-forever
and then life gets rough
A few months and you're fightin'
takes hard work to just start tryin'
but he kisses you after the storm
says,"our love is worth fighting for"

BRIDGE:"Take my hand and walk with me-let's make our own memories" cause--

CHORUS: You're gonna' miss this

you don't even know

and when the time flies by

you'll never want to let go

You're gonna' miss this

but I guess one day you'll see

the best things in life

are taken for granted easily

you're gonna' miss this

you're gonna' miss this

Five short years later
ya' got twin boys on your hands
paintin' on the walls-and halls
runnin' around in underpants
You're smokin' cigarettes,talkin' to your boss,
but they're shootin' NERF guns, you can't hear alot
and their screaming makes you wanna blow up, but your other half tells you that they do grow up

And then no one will be here to give sticky kisses
make us pictures and ask for the genie's wishes

CHORUS

The boys turn ten
they just woke up
seems like yesterday-they were named
you can't believe they're growing up

They sit in your lap, tryin' to understand
and hold your hand
dressed in Pokemon PJ's
they're your biggest fans

They say, "I love you-now I'm ten years old!"
and right then and there- you finally know

CHORUS

You're gonna' miss this
you're gonna' miss this
I'm gonna miss this

I wrote this because I can't believe how fast time goes by. Just yesterday, it seems, my little sister was runnin' around in diapers and singing Hilary Duff... and now she's on her way to Freshman homecoming and she walked down in a strapless dress and some make up... while it was awesome and I was so happy for her, I just realized that she's growing up and I don't want to miss anymore. In two years, I'm moving out and then I'll realize just how much I'll miss her...

I just hope anyone who reads this cherishes what they have cause'... you're gonna miss this... this moment, this time in your life.

yes and no. lol i listened to the song for the first time and then I looked up and saw my sister walking down the hall in a dress for her freshman dance. i got all teary eyed like a dork :) and was like, "whoa she's growing up way too fast." and so i wrote a song about it. :) but i do like trace adkins in that song. but um yeah...i wrote this one awhile ago. Teaches you life goes by way too fast.

I'm glad you like it though! :) Do you listen to country music?
