She was starin out the window of their SUV
Complainin sayin I can't wait to turn 18
She said I'll make my own money
And I'll make my own rules
Momma put the car in park out there in front of the school
And she kissed her head, and said
'I was just like you'
You're gonna' miss this
You're gonna' want this back
You're gonna' wish these days
Hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna' miss this
Before she knows it she's a brand new bride
In her one bedroom apartment
And her daddy stops by
He tells her it's a nice place
She says, 'It'll do for now'
Starts talkin' about babies, and buyin a house
Daddy shakes his head
And says baby just slow down
Cuz' you're gonna' miss this
You're gonna' want this back
You're gonna' wish these days
Hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna' miss this
Five years later there's a plumber
Workin' on the water heater
Dog's barkin', phone's ringin'
One kid's cryin' one kid's screamin'
And she keeps apologizin'
He says they don't bother me
I've got two babies of my own
One's thirty- six, one's twenty- three
Huh, it's hard to believe
But you're gonna' miss this
You're gonna' want this back
You're gonna' wish these days
Hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna' miss this
You're gonna' miss this
Yeaahhhh... you're gonna' miss this...

    this song made me regret somethings that I have done in the past time.

    It makes you think about not going through school so fast and slowing down and enjoying it.

    it made me cry, i miss lots of things in my life, and now, i just wish i could go back and and enjoy more and just do it again, it also reminds me that 2 weeks ago, my old 5th grade teacher's husband died and she told me she just wanted to go back and do it again...T_T

    you know,this song really makes me wonder,if I am gonna' miss this. I've had a lot of fun times, like yesterday,i got Pink Eye, so i had to miss my field trip.My mom felt bad for me so me so she bought me a two liter bottle of "Sunkist",a muffin,a box of fruit loops,a "Butter-finger"and a free trip to the zoo to see under the sea 3D at the Imax theater.
    i'm gonna miss this.
    i'm gonna want this back.
    i'm gonna wish these days
    hadn't gone by this fast.
    these are some good times.
    so I'LL take a look around.
    i may not know it now.
    I'm gonna miss this.

    yes, this song made me cry, but
    i know i will always remember
    the good times. - taylaswiftrocks10

    This is probably one of the most straight forward, truest songs ever. What its basically saying is that well, yeah dont go through life to fast because one day it dissapears for ever and you never know when that will be and you may miss even the smallest of things. And stormgirl08, perfect, i agree completely.
