  • When you're gone

    I've been wanderin' 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

    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

    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, I've been driving up and down these streets
    Trying to find somewhere to go
    Ya I'm lookin' for a familiar face but there's no one I know

    Ah 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

    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

    Baby when you're gone I realize I'm in love
    The days go on and on and the nights 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

    Baby when you're gone, yeah
