Mary Gauthier – How Could You Be Gone Lyrics

I keep starin’ at the clock
Stumblin’ round the house in shock
I don’t know what I feel
I can’t believe that this is real
I don’t know what to wear
I don’t know who will be there
I wanna call you, I wanna cry
I don’t wanna say goodbye

Turn the key make the drive
Park and watch the cars arrive
Friends I never knew you had
It’s movin’ slow, it’s movin’ fast
I walk by your photograph
I hear your voice, I hear your laugh
Everybody’s dressed in black
I still think you’re comin’ back

How could you be gone
How could you be gone

I’m sitting in a plastic chair
The preacher’s words hang in the air
A cross of roses, pink and white
Slideshow pictures of your life
Children run across the lawn
They don’t understand you’re gone
I’m lookin’ for you in the crowd
Lookin’ for you in the clouds

How could you be gone
How could you be gone

We all hang our heads to pray
Preacher tells us what to say
I don’t know what I believe
I just know I have to leave
I walk alone back to my car
I go before the goodbyes start
I have always been this way
You were the only one who could make me stay

How could you be gone
How could you be gone
How could you be gone
How could you be gone
