    (When you're gone!)

    [Verse 1]
    I've been wandering around the house all night
    Wondering what the hell to do
    Yeah, I'm trying to concentrate but
    All I can think of is you

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Well, the phone don't ring cause my friends ain't home
    I'm tired of being all alone
    Got the TV on cause the radio's playing
    Songs that remind me of you

    [Chorus]
    Baby, when you're gone
    I realize I'm in love
    Days go on and on
    And the nights just seem so long
    Even food don't taste that good
    Drink ain't doing what it should
    Things just feel so wrong
    Baby, when you're gone
    Yeah

    [Verse 2]
    I've been driving up and down these streets
    Trying to find somewhere to go
    Yeah, I'm looking for a familiar face
    But there's no one I know

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Oh, this is torture, this is pain
    It feels like I'm gonna go insane
    I hope you're coming back real soon
    Cause I don't know what to do

    [Chorus]
    Baby, when you're gone (When you're gone)
    I realize I'm in love
    Days go on and on (On and on)
    And the nights just seem so long
    Even food don't taste that good
    Drink ain't doing what it should
    Things just feel so wrong
    Oh yeah
    Baby, when you're gone

    [Solo]

    Oh, baby, when you're gone

    [Chorus]
    Oh, baby, when you're gone (When you're gone)
    I realize I'm in love (You're in love)
    Days go on and on
    And the nights just seem so long
    Even food don't taste that good (Ohh)
    Drink ain't doing what it should
    Ah, things just feel so wrong (So wrong)
    Baby, when you're gone (Yeah, you're gone)

    [Outro]
    Oh, baby, when you're gone
    Yeah, baby, when you're gone Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
