You Were Gone (Before You Said Goodbye)

 

Every time you'd hold me, I knew

With every lie you told me, I knew

That the one I loved before

Didn't live here anymore

And that you were gone

Before you said good-bye

 

 

I could feel you cryin' at night

I knew what you were trying to hide

Honey any fool would know

When he heard your sad hellos

That you were gone

Before you said good-bye

 

 

                        Oh and I remember

                        That it came as no surprise

                        You'd been gone a while in your eyes

 

 

And every time you'd hold me, I knew

With every lie you told me, I knew

That the one I loved before

Didn't live here anymore

And that you were gone

Before you said good-bye
