Mmm, standing in the doorway
She was crying, big as life
She was waving me goodbye
The fool that I am, saw it coming
Did not have to guess the reason why

She said again and again, "I'll be going
And one day you're gonna be here alone"
And right now, I'm starting to believe her
She just ain't leavin', she's gone

This ain't the first time that I've been through this
I know the price I'm gonna pay, you see
I've got one ex-wife already
And I've got another on the way

She could always tell that I was lying
And God knows that I'd be lying all the time
And sitting here right now, you know that I'm dying
'Cause I could not keep myself in line

And it's too late, I'm gonna need her
And the nights are getting cold and long
And I never will forget that front door slamming
You know, because, she just ain't leaving, she's gone
