  • Well I can see heaven
    See it over the plain
    And if I start running now
    I think I can make it
    And never look back again

    Your face is all around me
    Your keys are in my hand
    And everywhere I go
    I'll try to remember
    Exactly who I am

    'Cause now that you're gone
    I can breathe
    Now that you're gone
    I am free
    Free to make a mess of everything
    'Cause nothing belongs to me
    Now that you're gone
    I can breathe
    I can breathe

    We made a bed of roses
    But I got pricked by the thorns
    And on a long cold night
    I still think I'm bleeding
    But I wake up untorn

    Well I am a missing person
    I've lost it all but my name
    And, I'm afraid some long lonely road
    Will lead me back to you again

    'Cause now that you're gone
    I can breathe
    Now that you're gone
    I am free
    Free to make a mess of everything
    'Cause nothing belongs to me
    Now that you're gone
    Now that you're gone
    Now that you're gone

    Now that you're gone
    I can breathe
    Now that you're gone
    I am free
    Free to make a mess of everything
    'Cause nobody's watching me

    Oh,
    Now that you're gone
    I am free, yeah
    Now that you're gone
    I can breathe, oh
    Now that you're gone
    I am free
    Now that you're gone
    I can breathe. Writer/s: SHERYL CROW
