Gin Blossoms – Mrs. Rita lyrics

You can see it in her letters on the paper with her pen
Her response is getting stronger I think she's coming round again
Tell me Mrs. Rita what's it say in my tarot
Read my palm and tell me why do lovers come and go
Is she coming round for me once again, around or was that just the end
I just hope she's coming round again
I've been keeping myself busy with my books and with my tapes
Every day's much better since I've slowed my drinking pace
There's no swimming in the bottle it's just someplace we all drown
I lost myself in sorrow lost my confidence in doubt
Is she coming 'round for me once again, around or was that just the end
I just hope she's coming round again
Get in the car and drive through town
Down the block and back around
Pretending that she's there with me we drive
Gone forever...
My patience keeps me plaintive my high hopes keep me alone
My lover's will is shaken I wish she would just come home
So tell me Mrs. Rita what's it say in my tarot
Read my palm and tell me why do lovers come and go
Is she coming round for me once again, around or was that just the end
I just hope she's coming round again

    This poor sap lost his love to either the bottle or he ignored her or she just wanted to move on. We can only guess. She writes which means they stay in touch which he thinks is a clue to her coming back to him even though he spends his days alone believing she is there beside him just like the old days. Asking mrs. Rita for advice is a disperate last chance to find out if his love is coming back but asking why lovers come and go tells us he does not believe she is coming back. In the end he hopes but is still alone. This has always been my favorite gin blossoms song. Reminds me of when my girlfriend dumped me. Took a long time to move on while she moved on quickly. Why do lovers come and go? We may never know.
