Maria Daines ~ 'Til It's Gone



‘Til It’s Gone’  


You never want it 'til it's gone That's who you are, that's where you're from You keep on messing with my mind You're gonna end up the losing kind You had it all n' walked away Thought you'd do better some fine day Now what you got ain't worth a dime And you soon be past your prime Go on n' try to shoot the moon Back here on earth you gone too soon You think you'll have it all n' more Don't catch your heartstrings on the door Your Mama told me not to cry She said you ain't never been right You always broke n' full of moonshine Said I'll do better with a little time Punch above your weight n' you ran away N' you ain't worth chasing like an old freight train Too much baggage like everyone say Go on now boy, you'll end up in the reclaim You only looking when it's lost Too bad you eyes is double crossed You sure are awkward more n' most Gonna be just you n' the signpost Punch above your weight n' you ran away N' you ain't worth chasing like an old freight train, yeah Too much baggage like everyone say Go on now boy, you'll end up in the reclaim You never want it 'til it's gone That's who you are, that's where you're from Keep on messing with my mind You're gonna end up the losing kind You never want it 'til it's gone You never learned your right from wrong You flying solo can't you see Time you found a little mercy, yeah You never want it, you never want it 'til it's gone © Maria Daines/Paul Killington 16th June 2021
