lyrics

Cruising along
At a quarter past 8
Music comes on
You don’t care if you’re late
Cigarette drag
It’s the best that you’ve had
And you’re feeling great

The night is your slave
She’s got so much in store
A grin as you say
That daytime is a bore
A pat on the back
Then it’s one for the road
And you’re out the door

You’re gone yeah you’re you’re gone now
Gone in the blink of an eye
You’re gone yeah you’re you’re gone this time

Stepping outside
With the sun in my eyes
Back of my mind thinking you are alright
Safe in your place
With your hangover case and the Jesus light

A 2 minute call
That I’ll never forget
Choking back tears
Full of bitter regret
I knew you’d be leaving
The second we met
But I said nothing

You’re gone yeah you’re you’re gone now
Gone in the blink of an eye
You’re gone yeah you’re you’re gone this time

I won’t forget what you did
I won’t forget what you said

You’re gone yeah you’re you’re gone now
Gone in the blink of an eye
You’re gone yeah you’re really gone this time
