if tomorrow never comes

This song was played at my grandma’s funeral. .. in the early 90s.

I still can’t listen to it without bawling.

I’m not sure what made me think about it, since I avoid it like the plague (really! If I am anywhere and it starts playing I stick my fingers in my ears and act like I’m 3).

Do you have a song that just really speaks to you? In a good or bad way?

Here is a LO with Grandma and Grandpa CJ (he died earlier, probably 88?)

Kit: Eva Kipler’s All The little things

If you are not familiar with the song, here are the lyrics.

If Tomorrow Never Comes By Garth Brooks

Sometimes late at night
I lie awake and watch her sleeping
She’s lost in peaceful dreams
So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark
And the thought crosses my mind
If I never wake up in the morning
Would she ever doubt the way I feel
About her in my heart

If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she’s my only one
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face the world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes

‘Cause I’ve lost loved ones in my life
Who never knew how much I loved them
Now I live with the regret
That my true feelings for them never were revealed
So I made a promise to myself
To say each day how much she means to me
And avoid that circumstance
Where there’s no second chance to tell her how I feel

If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she’s my only one
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face the world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes

So tell that someone that you love
Just what you’re thinking of
If tomorrow never comes

  2. I just happened across this post of yours and it reminds me of the post I just put up earlier this week about “Time to Say Goodbye” and how it reminds me of my grandmother (and makes me cry)! Beautiful and sad songs…
