The laughter is gone
The cryin' is over
And I'm not losin' sleep anymore
The walls are all bare
The closet's half empty
The phone doesn't ring like before
I'm done with fallin' apart
I'm waitin' for my change of heart

I wake up alone
Knowin' I'm on my own, again
Got it all straight in my head
Must be somethin' I missed
As I went down the list
Forget things that I need to forget
An' everything's gone
But you haven't left me yet

I painted our room
Replaced all the curtains
And there's a new rug on the floor
Called up the goodwill
Said come and get it
Everything she left behind is yours
I can still see you drivin' away
So why do I still see your face?

When I wake up alone
Knowin' I'm on my own, again
Got it all straight in my head
Must be somethin' I missed
As I went down the list
Of the things that I need to forget
An' everything's gone
But you haven't left me yet

There's not a picture left
Not a stitch of clothes
But there's still somethin' here
An' I don't believe in ghosts

Oh I wake up alone
Knowin' I'm on my own, again
Got it all straight in my head
Must be somethin' I missed
As I went down the list
Of the things that I need to forget
An' everything's gone
But you haven't left me yet

Oh I wake up alone
Knowin' I'm on my own, again
You haven't left me yet
(You haven't left me yet)
Must be somethin' I missed
As I went down the list
Oh you haven't left me yet
(You haven't left me yet)
An' everything's gone
But you haven't left me yet

    She's already gone, but he still see's her in everything he does, from when he wakes up in the morning til he goes to be at nite.
