lyrics

When you´re gone
I floss my teeth
When you´re gone
I don´t eat much red meat

I run a lot
I make a lot of lists
I lie awake
And wonder if you miss me
Like I do you
And if you´re
A little hungover too
Cause I drink a lot
And watch terrible TV
Call all my friends
To come around and entertain me

But no one says the right things, and no one sings the right songs
And the toilet´s stuck, and the coffee sucks, and the weather's wrong
And the nights are much too long
When you're gone.

When you're gone
I brush my hair
When you're gone
I try to take good care of my person
But who cares if that person's
Just a shadow of myself when I´m with you

When you're gone I lose my head
And though I may regain my cool
Each day seems like a foolish escapade
Without the logic of you
Sleeping and waking
In my bed

When you're gone
I dry my tears
When you're gone
I count the days,
And months, and years
And I laugh a lot
And I blush just like a kid
And I think of all the things we did and haven´t done yet

Cause you know all the right words and you sing all the right songs
And the milk can turn, and the food can burn
And the sky can rain all its hurricanes
And the roof can leak and the trains can shriek and the city can shut down for a week
And the doors can slam and the traffic jam, oh, but I won´t give a damn
Cause when you're gone
You come back
