When tomorrow starts without me And I’m not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes All filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry The way you did today; While thinking of the many things We didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me As much as I love you;
And each time that you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too.
When tomorrow starts without me Don’t think we’re far apart
For every time you think of me, I’m right there in your heart.
