Lyrics

Already Gone
Lyrics and Music by Rob Oswin

Never really loved nobody, the way that I loved you.
Never really saw no harm, in leaving without you.

But Darlin', Night after night...Time after time...
I take another shot of whiskey just to chase you from my mind
And still I hear you calling my name while I'm singing

It's a little late to say I'm sorry.
It's a little late to say I'm wrong.
It's a little late for blazing glory.
Cuz' I'm already gone.

Sweet sands of time rush on by, leaving behind them,
Remnants of sex, love and lies, and screaming and shouting

But Darlin', Night after night... Time after time...
I take another shot of whiskey just to chase you from my mind
And still I hear you calling my name
While I'm singing

It's a little late to say I'm sorry.
It's a little late to say I'm wrong.
It's a little late for blazing glory.
Cuz' I'm already gone… Yeah
Cuz' I'm already gone.

And I'll never fall in love again, don't remind me…
I said I'll never fall in love again, got to leave it behind me,
And know I'll never fall in love again
I said I'll never fall in love again
Oh no, I'll never fall in love again

Cuz' in a heartbeat, don't you know I'd be there?
With only one breath to breathe, hey darlin' don't you know with you I'm gonna share?
But I don't see a better kind of future, if I should build a love for you
A better size to suit you...

When Darlin', Night after night...Time after time...
I take another shot of whiskey, and I go another line...
I take another shot of whiskey, I take another lady another time...
I take another nother shot of whiskey, just to try to keep you off my mind
So I can keep on singing

It's a little late to say I'm sorry.
It's a little late to say I'm wrong.
It's a little late for blazing glory.
Cuz' I'm already gone… Yeah
Cuz' I'm already gone.
