It's so like you just to show up at my door
And act like nothin's happened
You think I'll sweep my heart up off the floor
And give it to you
Like so many times before
You're talking to a stranger
I'm not that girl anymore

[Chorus]
That girl is long gone
Boy you missed the boat it just sailed away
Long gone
She's not drowning in her yesterdays
Betcha never thought I'd be that strong
Well this girl is long gone

Don't waste your breath with baby baby please
Cuz I am so not listening
Don't bother getting down upon your knees and try to beg me
I'm tired of how you twist the truth
You're not talking to the same girl
Who used to forgive you

[Repeat Chorus]

Gone like the wind under Superman's cape
Like a thief in the night I made the great escape
I'm not the kind of girl that keeps making the same mistakes

[Chorus]
That girl is long gone
Boy you missed the boat it just sailed away
Long gone
I'm not drowning in my yesterdays
Betcha never thought I'd be that strong, betcha didn't
Yeah well baby I proved you wrong
This girl is long gone, long gone
This girl is long gone, long gone
This girl is long gone
This girl is gone

    After 20 years my ex who has been married to a girl half his age and left him with two kids (and i love them both like they are mine) he would like to start up where he left off! I'm long gone where he is concerned. We have kids and i love his kids with his ex but learned my lesson along time ago. This girl is gone!! Lmmp

    To me it's about a girl who is tired of her boyfriend using her, and then he just leaves her and expects her to forgive her everytime, and she is done woth him
