You say that you're bored with life and that you're bored with me
Cause you say that this love of ours ain't what it ought to be
Now you despite this little house that we've always called home
I know that you don't love me now but you'll love me when I'm gone
You'll love me when I'm gone and then you'll realize just what I meant to you
You'll miss me when I'm gone and then you'll realize how good I've been to you
You'll want me when I'm gone and then you'll realize you've loved me all alone
Oh it's true you may not love me now but you'll love me when I'm gone

We've grown too familiar with each other so you say
You say there's no excitement now too bad you feel that way
Well I wonder how exciting that your life will be alone
Oh I know that you don't love me now but you'll miss me when I'm gone
You'll love me when I'm gone...
