ALREADY GONE

I got the last plane from Amsterdam and skipped through the duty-free

So you could call it a last ditch plan but that’s what she means to me

I only wanted to make her smile, just trying to make her day

But she’d already gone, she’d already gone, she’d already gone away

 

I set a candle beside the door in true Scandinavian style

A made a tray full of petit fours, I know how to make her smile

I tried to do something memorable, something special for her last day

But she’d already gone, she’d already gone, she’d already gone away

 

She never said a thing, she never gave her word

She didn’t try to ring, not a sound was heard

 

She never said a thing, she never gave her word

She didn’t try to ring, not a sound was heard

 

I scattered petals across the floor and riddled the air with scent

Attached a tie to my bedroom door to signal my intent

Worked through the ways I could make her smile, even practiced what to say

But she’d already gone, she’d already gone, she’d already gone away

She’d already gone, she’d already gone, she’d already gone away

She’d already gone, she’d already gone, she’d already gone…
