  • (I will be gone before you wake
    I will be gone before oh yes
    I will be gone before you wake
    I will be gone)

    Yeah, carry on whinging and whining
    And get left to regret what you said
    I'll be out the door in a sec
    Like you [?]
    I'm tired of rowing
    And hours on end, the bickering, fighting
    I blame my surroundings
    A relationship defined in violence
    It blossomed, and it bloomed
    Now it's rotten and all blue
    And even though I still love you
    I can't go through with the doom and gloom again
    That's the truth my friend
    I'm not leaving for another lady
    I felt I had to depart
    Cause if I didn't I'd kill you, maybe

    [Chorus]
    Ah, empty days of pain
    The sun goes on and on
    [?]
    You gotta let it go, let it go
    Ah, empty days of rain
    The sun goes on and on
    You gotta let it go, let it go
    I just wanna be left alone,
    It's time to let it go
    I just wanna be left alone
    I think it's time you let it go

    The sun doesn't always shine
    I'm stuck in a solar eclipse
    Even though I love you to bits
    I'm done with the pain that we both inflict
    Upon one another
    It don't make me happy to watch you suffer
    Run back to your mother
    Tell her I turned out the same as the others
    I don't know how to handle ya
    All you do is make me angrier
    Till I wanna manhandle ya
    I'm contemplating whether to kiss ya or strangle ya
    But I can't put my hands on ya
    Like a burning flame in the burning flames
    In hell with a dibs ain't walkin away
    I can no longer stand with ya

    [Chorus]

    You took me high you took me low
    You sold your soul with lies you told
    And now it's time to ride alone
    The lights will guide me home
    The more I gave, the more you take
    Now I'll be gone before you wake
    Cause I just can't ignore my fate
    Forget the day you saw my face

    (I will be gone)
    In the blink of an eye
    (I will be gone)
    With the stars in the sky
    (I will be gone)
    And you're askin' me why
    (I will be gone before you)
