Artist/Band: Mary Chapin Carpenter
Lyrics for Song: When She's Gone
Lyrics for Album: Triple Feature [2010]



She threw her purse upon the bed

She looked around and shook her head

There's really nothing left, she said

There's nothing I ain't done



She wore your favorite dress tonight

She hoped her hair would catch the light

And you just sat there gettin' tight

On double shots of rum



You don't care what people say

They're gonna say it anyway

You don't hear what you can't use

It's always been the same old news



You don't beg and you don't plead

Or miss a thing that you don't need

She knew by the way you kissed her

When she's gone, you won't miss her



Morning comes on an old cat's paws

And when the sun hits the walls

The light's as bright as 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 can't find it

You take a long drag on your smoke

And taste your coffee growing cold



She didn't beg and you didn't plead

She knew exactly how to leave

The way she knew when you kissed her

When she's gone, you won't miss her



She didn't beg and you didn't plead

She knew exactly when to leave

The way she knew as you kissed her

When she's gone, you won't miss her
