I'm Gonna Miss Your Mom And Dad
You want to split the sheets and the pots and pans
I wish we could have worked things out
But it seems you had a change of plans
I love you, you just don't know how much
And there's one more thing you should never doubt

(Yes) I'm gonna miss your mom and dad
Very best in-laws any man ever had
It's so sad you think it's so bad
'Cause I'm gonna miss your mom and dad

I know you have a lot on your mind, lots of things to do
My side of the garage won't be empty long
I know you'll find someone new
I still love you; you just don't know how much
I'm feeling so alone, trying hard to be strong


Maybe someday I'll see them again
Maybe drive by their place every now and then
Maybe even see your car there in the drive
It might even be a great day to be alive

Repeat CHORUS (second half)

Yes, I'm gonna miss your mom and dad

Short Song Description:
Trying to convince her not to leave him not just because of how much he loves her but what she would be doing to the overall family.
Long Song Description:
He's quite sad that he's having to leave. He thinks he'll be replaced quickly. He still loves her deeply. He hasn't been able to convince her not to split with him, so, in a last-ditch effort, he tells her that their relationship is more than just about them. And he sees a chance at the resurrection of their relationship.
Story Behind the Song:
When you marry, you marry a family; when you divorce, you divorce a family. I thought maybe he might tweak her emotionally into not leaving if he told her how much (in addition to her) he would miss her mom and dad.
