Everytime I turn the conversation to somethin'
Deeper than the weather
I can feel you all, but shuttin' down
And when I need an explanation for the silence
You just tell me "you don't wanna talk about it now"
What you're not sayin' is comin' in loud n clear
We're at a crossroads here

If I'm not the one thing, you can't stand to lose
If I'm not the arrow to the heart of you
If you don't get drunk, on my kiss
If you think you can do better than this
Then I guess we're done
Let's not drag this on
Consider me gone

With you I've always been wide open
Like a window or an ocean
There is nothin' I've ever tried to hide
So when you leave me, not knowin' where you're goin'
I start thinkin' that we're lookin'
We're lookin' at goodbye
How about a strong bout a strong shot of honesty?
Don't you owe that to me?

If I'm not the one thing, you can't stand to lose
If I'm not the arrow to the heart of you
If you don't get drunk, on my kiss
If you think you can do better than this
Then I guess we're done
Let's not drag this on
Consider me gone

Consider me a memory
Consider me the past
Consider me a smile in an old photograph
Someone who used to make you laugh

If I'm not the one thing, you can't stand to lose
If I'm not the arrow to the heart of you
Then I guess we're done
Let's not drag this on
Consider me gone
Consider me gone
Consider me gone
Just consider me gone (whoa oh whoa oh)

    I love this song. One of my favorite Reba Mcentire songs. Their relationship started out great, but now it's not going so well. She's really frustrated with him, so she's telling him to consider her gone. The video which premiered recently on cmt was great! One of, if not the, best of the videos that premiered that night. In the video, it wasn't her [Reba] who was having the trouble, it was her daughter. In the video, Reba's a clothing designer, and her daughter comes to her for advise. But when the daughter leaves, everything in the room starts to disappear. The daughter's bf (who was watching tv dressed in a t-shirt and shorts) starts getting worried, realizes his mistake, dresses in a suit and goes out to Reba's home and apologizes to Reba's daughter. She forgives him, they hug and then leave. After they leave, Reba looks on her table at a sketch of what she designed for her daughter's wedding dress, smiles, and then shuts off the light.

    Very well done Reba! I love this song and your music. How she sings this song sounds so country like. Pure country. 100 out of 5. Great job!

    My meaning to the song is that this guy has it great with this girl and he's takin her for granted, not to offend anybody but this song says this guy is treating her like s*t and this woman does not want to up with it tells us we should never take things for granted and we end up taking the things that mean the most to us for granted.

    The girl is a typical miss pageant contestant who was flogged by one of the pompous judges. She doesn't have much to offer besides her looks and talent and therefore is with a "boy toy." She wears red lipstick and her steering wheel is red signifying power. Her boyfriend is mistreating her. He cleans up his act in the end.
