Since You've Been Gone

from Head Full by Short Hand



Since you've been gone the nights are so long
But I can't sleep a wink.
Since you've been gone all I do is think about getting drink.
Since you've been gone I want to tie one on
But I can't do that on a wagon.
So far I've stayed on but it's hard holding on
Since you've been gone.

Since you've been gone the dawn is so long
It's hard to get out of bed.
Since you've been gone I haven't missed one of my meetings yet.
Since you've been gone I've wanted to phone
but I've called my sponsor at home.
I know I bothered his wife but he's saved my life
Since you've been gone.

Since you've been gone I figure I'm still better off without liquor
But I get quitting being a quitter if you don't ever get back here, o dear.

Since you've been gone the bottle sings a song
Like a beautiful woman.
I don't know how long I can hold on
Since you've been gone.

In the end, a set of sounds collect themselves into different shapes one might call "albums." Some sound like this and some sound like that. ... more
