When Shes Gone Lyrics

Artist: Mary Chapin Carpenter

(Mary Chapin Carpenter)

She threw her purse upon the bed
She looked around and shook her head
Theres really nothing left she said
Theres nothing I ain't done
She wore her favorite dress tonight
She hoped her hair would catch the light
And you just sat there getting tight
On double shots of rum

You dont care what people say
Theyre gonna do it anyway
You dont hear what you dont use
Its always been the same old news
You dont beg and you dont plead
Or miss a thing that you dont need
She knew by the way you kissed her
When shes gone, you wont miss her

Morning comes on an old cats paw
And when the sun hits the wall
The lights as bright was it ever was
After or before
And you wince as waking pounds your head
And you drag your arm across the bed
And the tangled sheets and the twisted spread
Fall onto the floor

And the kitchen table finds you silent
If you had a thought now you cant find it
You take a long draw on your smoke
And taste your coffee growing cold
She didnt beg and she didnt plead
She knew exactly how to leave
The way she knew when you kissed her
When shes gone you wont miss her

She didnt beg and she didnt plead
She knew exactly when to leave
They way she knew as you kissed her
When shes gone you wont miss her
