Go On Without Me

Album: Bring You Back (2013)
  • Every man has his place in time
    Everyone has a love one that they leave behind
    Even though I'm not where there with you
    I'm watching from a distance, Just wishin' that you knew

    I'll always hear the prayers in your head late at night
    I'm walkin' right beside you and nobody's by your side
    I don't want you to cry over my memories
    So go on without me,
    Without me

    I hope that it's my love that makes you feel
    But you can get back on your feet yeah I swear you will
    Oh you got so much of this life left to live
    I'll be smiling at the thought of you like I always did

    I'll always hear the prayers in your head late at night
    I'm walkin' right beside you, and nobody's by your side
    I don't want you to cry over my memories
    So go on without me
    Without me

    Without me
    Without me yeah

    I'll always hear the prayers in your head late at night
    I'm walkin' right beside you, and nobody's by your side
    I don't want you to cry over my memories
    So go on without me
    Without me

    Every breath of life is short and sweet
    So glad that I'm up here that I got to see
    You go on without meWriter/s: BRETT ELDREDGE, NATALIE HEMBY, ROSS COPPERMAN

  • Michelle King from Plymouth Mi Brett my husband passed away on 2-21-2015 he loved your song Mean to me after he passed my local radio station friends at WYCD in Detroit sent me a dedication to John and played that song. I then went on to spotify to hear more of your songs and out of the blue the next song that cued up was Go on without me. It was like John was talking to me! I listen to this song everyday now on my ride to work and it makes me smile so much and gives me strength to make it through the day! John would want me to be happy and still see me smile! I am now even more lucky I get to meet you in person at the Detroit Hoedown this Friday and beyond thankful for your music! Thank you so much for writing this song after your loss.
