Cherry Suede – When I’m Gone lyrics

I’ve seen the writing on the wall
I’ve read the verdict in your eyes
The way you whisper on the phone, when you think you’re all alone
Says that you’ve been telling lies

I bet you thought I’d never know
I’m sure you guessed I’d be surprised
That’s why you tried to play it cool, tired to play me like a fool
But I can read between the lines

You know I never tried to bring you down
When times were tough I hung around
But now this heart you took for granted
Is finally leaving town

And when I’m gone, tell me how will you make it alone?
When you find that you’re on your own
And there ain’t no one home you can lean on baby
When I’m gone, tell me who will be turning you on?
You’ll be lonely before too long…When I’m gone

I should have listened to my friends
I could have saved myself the pain
They told me time and time again, you would hurt me in the end
So I guess that I‘m to blame

Never thought I’d ever have to feel this way
So broken down and so betrayed
But I know the pain you caused me
Will all come back to you someday

And when I’m gone, tell me how will you make it alone?
When you find that you’re on your own
And there ain’t no one home you can lean on baby
When I’m gone, tell me who will be turning you on?
You’ll be lonely before too long…When I’m gone

Don’t you know I never tried to bring you down
When times were tough I hung around
But now this heart you took for granted
Is finally leaving town

And when I’m gone, tell me how will you make it alone?
When you find that you’re on your own
And there ain’t no one home you can lean on baby
When I’m gone, tell me who will be turning you on?
You’ll be lonely before too long…When I’m gone

You’ll be lonely before too long…When I’m gone
