  • My buddies think I'm on the lake
    Boss thinks I've been sick for days
    And mama's probably on her way
    'Cause I ain't picked up the phone

    I've been a million places
    But they're all up in my head
    Over-drinking, overthinking ever since you left

    I've been gone, I've been gone
    I've been sittin' on the couch watching TV all day long
    All day long, I've been tryna figure out how a good thing went wrong
    Faster than that freight train, farther than that airplane
    Sadder than a country song
    Headed down that highway, anywhere but my way
    Ever since you moved on, I've been gone

    Took a trip down memory lane
    Checked into hotel heartbreak
    Passed rock bottom on the way
    Without leaving my living room

    I've been a million places
    But they're all up in my head
    Over-drinking, overthinking ever since you left

    I've been gone, I've been gone
    I've been sittin' on the couch watching TV all day long
    All day long, I've been tryna figure out how a good thing went wrong
    Faster than that freight train, farther than that airplane
    Sadder than a country song
    Headed down that highway, anywhere but my way
    Ever since you moved on, I've been gone
    Yeah, I've been gone

    All the clothes are on the floor
    All the mail's by the door
    All the whiskey bottles in my bed
    All the dishes in the sink
    All the gas is in the tank
    All the neighbors probably think I'm dead

    I've been gone, I've been gone
    I've been sittin' on the couch watching TV all day long
    All day long, I've been tryna figure out how a good thing went wrong
    Faster than that freight train, farther than that airplane
    Sadder than a country song
    Headed down that highway, anywhere but my way
    Ever since you moved on, I've been gone
    I've been gone
    Gone
