  • Every time I turn the conversation to something deeper
    Than the weather I can feel you all but shuttin' down.
    And when I need an explanation for the silence you
    Just tell me you don't wanna talk about it now.

    What you're not saying is coming in loud
    And clear we're at a crossroads here

    If I'm not the one thing you can't stand to lose
    If I'm not that arrow to the heart of you
    If you don't get drunk on my kiss
    If you think you can do better than this then I guess we're done
    Let's not drag this on
    Consider me gone

    With you I've always been wide open like a window or an ocean.
    There is nothing I've ever tried to hide.
    So when you leave me not knowin' where you're goin'
    I start thinkin' that we're lookin' we're lookin' at goodbye.

    How about a strong shot of honesty
    Don't you owe that to me

    If I'm not the one thing you can't stand to lose
    If I'm not that arrow to the heart of you
    If you don't get drunk on my kiss
    If you think you can do better than this then I guess we're done
    Let's not drag this on
    Consider me gone.

    Consider me a memory.
    Consider me the past.
    Consider me a smile in an old photograph
    Someone who used to make you laugh.

    If I'm not the one thing you can't stand to lose
    If I'm not that arrow to the heart of you
    Then I guess we're done let's not drag this on.
    Consider me gone.
    Consider me gone.
    Consider me gone.
    Just consider me gone. Writer/s: MARV GREEN, STEVEN ROSS DIAMOND

  • Carol from Sayre, Pathe songs keeping breaking up while they are playing. if i can't hear the whole song what is the why bother!
  • Princess from Villa Rica, GaEvery time i turn the conversation to something deeper than the weather i can feel you always shuttin' down.

    And when i need an explanation for the silence you just tell me you don't wanna talk about it now.

    What you're not saying is coming in loud and clear we're at a crossroads here...

    If i'm not the one thing you can't stand to lose
    If i'm not that arrow to the heart of you
    If you don't get drunk on my kiss
    If you think you can do better than this then i guess we're done
    Let's not drag this on
    Consider me gone


    I heard it on the radio and I knew he didn't love me anymore, if he ever did, I dunno. We broke up a month later . . . when I met his wife! The lying P.O.S. never got a divorce. He introduced me to his mom, brother, sister, and all his friends and nobody said anything to me about his wife for 15 months!!!

    I'm still a little angry, can you tell?
  • Robin from Marlton, NjThe first time I heard this song I was driving to work alone and it's amazing I didn't stop short when I heard this. The first line got my attention and the rest is history. If I were a song writer, this could be my song. The lyrics/message is exactly what I've been unsuccessfully trying to convey to my husband this year. Thank you Reba for recording this song!
