chris shiflett – the girl’s already gone lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
i’m pleading
i thought she had what she needed
thought her wild years were buried deep and
i tried to believer her
but on her way out
said she’d be back in a couple hours
left a smoke on the kitchen counter
now i’m living without her

[chorus]
’cause everybody knows
that the girl won’t last forever
she comes and goes
but the girl’s already gone

[verse 2]
i just smoked and drove through town
checked all our favorite bars like a lost-and-found
but she wasn’t around
now i remember at night how she’d pull away
left me a little more defeated every day
in the dark i’m praying

[chorus]
’cause everybody knows
that the girl won’t last forever
she comes and goes but she never tells
sinking like a penny in a wishing well
but everybody knows
that the girl’s already gone

[bridge]
sometimes i hear voice out on the stairs
like an angel’s ghost she’s not there
her leather jacket’s still draped over the chair
and her makeup’s scattered everywhere

[chorus]
’cause everybody knows
that the girl won’t last forever
she comes and goes but she never tells
sinking like a penny in a wishing well
but everybody knows
that the girl’s already gone
the girl’s already gone
the girl’s already gone
the girl’s already gone
