"She's Gone" as written by Shelly M Peiken, Leah Hayward and Dan James....
Everybody's high on consolation
Everybody's trying to tell me what's right for me
My daddy tried to bore me with a sermon
But it's plain to see that they can't comfort me

Sorry Charlie for the imposition
I think I've got it, got the strength to carry on
I need a drink and a quick decision
Now it's up to me, ooh what will be

[Chorus]
She's Gone Oh I, Oh I'd
Better learn how to face it
She's Gone Oh I, Oh I'd
Pay the devil to replace her
She's Gone - what went wrong

Up in the morning look in the mirror
I'm worn as her tooth brush hanging in the stand
My face ain't looking any younger
Now I can see love's taken her toll on me

She's Gone
Think I'll spend eternity in the city
Let the carbon and monoxide choke my thoughts away
And pretty bodies help dissolve the memories
But they can never be what she was to me

She's Gone

    General Commentsorry sentimetal, but this song was made like 10 years before Hall and Sarah broke up and also, Oates wrote this song cuz a girl stood him up, so your kinda just a tad off about your facts.

    it is a very good "she left me" song though, i enjoy it.

    General CommentI agree with Sentimetal - at least one of the best. I like the newer acoustic version off of Hall's solo album - a little more blues-ey and a little less "pop". And any song that can fit the words "carbon monoxide" seamlessly into the lyrics always scores big with me

    General Commentsomeone recently sent this to me from youtube. someone might be a bit broken up for breaking it off. that's what happens when you don't care enough, you make a song pretending you do.

    My OpinionGreat example of a "perfect" song, lyrically and instrumentally. Pretty much flawless.

    General CommentI was a Nerd in High School (still am-always Will be) so I couldn't identify with the feeling at the time. But-THIS Blue-Eyed Soul Duo knocked it out of the Park with that Song (AND "Sarah.") My Late Father said that popular music was mostly "She Loved Me, She doesn't Love Me, or She Left Me." Well-of the 6.02 x 10*23 "She Left Me" songs, which probably go back to the beginning of Human Civilization, THIS one happens to be the Undisputed GOAT. I SAW them in Detroit two nights ago. They did most of their Standards, but NOT "Modern Love."
