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;
so when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart,
For every time you think of me, I’m right here in your hearts.
