By Now I'd Be Gone
by Lauren Christine Denman

Sometimes I wonder
Why you hang on
Because if I were you
By now... I'd be gone

There's a new pair of eyes
He looks into
He's holding a lover
And baby... it isn't you

When he works late
Or goes to a meeting
That's when you know
It's her... he's seeing

Deep in the night
From his phone to hers
You feel the knife cutting
When you hear his whispers

He says "I'm sorry"
When you catch him in his lie
He asks for forgiveness
And you give him another try

He won't be the one
To tell you goodbye
There's a reputation to keep
Afterall... he's the 'good guy'

Sometimes I wonder
Why you hang on
Because if I were you
By now... I'd be gone
