She looks for all the signs
Checks your shirt when you get home to make sure
She keep an eye on your telephone
Instead of asking you
She asks everyone you're with
And ends up in dark conclusions you're not alone

She calls you up repeatedly
Knows where you're at all the time

At night you tell her that she's all you long for
But she knows by your face there has got to be more
Her eyes are too narrow, her legs are too long
She knows by this time
Tomorrow you'll be gone
You'll be gone


She used to be ahead
She had thrilling and exciting things to say
She kept you on your toes all the way
But now the tides have turned
You have come too close to knowing her
God forbid you'll know what she's really like

When she sleeps, she keeps her makeup on
She prefers to live in a lie

At night you tell her that she's all you long for
But she knows by your face there has got to be more
Her eyes are too narrow, her legs are too long
She knows by this time
Tomorrow you'll be gone
You'll be gone


La la na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na


At night you tell her that she's all you long for
But she knows by your face there has got to be more
Her eyes are too narrow, her legs are too long
She knows by this time
Tomorrow you'll be gone
You'll be gone

    General CommentThis song, oddly enough, reminds me of my late 'aunt'.. Whenever she was in a relationship with a man, she would constantly hide her true self, physically and emotionally - before they woke up, she would apply her makeup and get back into bed so they would always wake up to a pretty, but unfortunately fake face. I suppose she was afraid of completely letting them know who she was?

    She was always up and about, confident and street smart. Observant and maybe a little doubtful inside, though? That'd make sense by the first verse. And the entire song; she wishes to give the man her all but she can't stop believing she'll never be anything special, even though he might actually be capable of loving her.

    "She knows by this time tommorrow you'll be gone, you'll be gone" - This pretty much sums it up. She tries to hard to be perfect for him, but in the back of her mind she knows it probably wouldn't work out.
