Reckless Kelly – You Should Be Gone lyrics

I don't know why you want me
I just can't see
If you'd done half the things
I'd done to you to me, I'd walk away
Leave without a trace, I couldn't stay

'Cause you keep hangin' on
And I keep doin' you wrong
And the cards and the stars all say
You should be gone

All day your phone keeps ringin'
Offers come constantly
And I don't know who keeps callin'
One thing's for sure it isn't me
'Cause I don't have the time to play the fool

'Cause you keep holdin' on
And I keep stringin' you along
And there ain't no reason to stay
You should be gone

Sometimes I wonder
How you live with my mistakes
Sometimes I wonder
How many more I'll have to make

Well, I know your father hates me
And I can't say he's to blame
'Cause if you were my daughter not my lover
Well, you know I'd probably feel the same
Your friends all hate me too but that's okay

'Cause you keep hangin' on
And they keep callin' me a bum
And everybody knows but me
You should be gone

And the cards and the stars all say
You should be gone
And by the time I finish this song
You'll probably be gone
