"Now That You're Gone" as written by and Sheryl Crow....
Well I can see heaven
See it over the plain
And if I start running now
I think I can make it
And never look back again

Your face is all around me
Your keys are in my hand
And everywhere I go
I'll try to remember
Exactly who I am

'Cause now that you're gone
I can breathe
Now that you're gone
I am free
Free to make a mess of everything
'Cause nothing belongs to me
Now that you're gone
I can breathe
I can breathe

We made a bed of roses
But I got pricked by the thorns
And on a long cold night
I still think I'm bleeding
But I wake up untorn

Well I am a missing person
I've lost it all but my name
And, I'm afraid some long lonely road
Will lead me back to you again

'Cause now that you're gone
I can breathe
Now that you're gone
I am free
Free to make a mess of everything
'Cause nothing belongs to me
Now that you're gone
Now that you're gone
Now that you're gone

Now that you're gone
I can breathe
Now that you're gone
I am free
Free to make a mess of everything
'Cause nobody's watching me

Oh,
Now that you're gone
I am free, yeah
Now that you're gone
I can breathe, oh
Now that you're gone
I am free
Now that you're gone
I can breathe.

    General Commentaww no, i think this song is in a different vein to "since u been gone". it's less positive, more despondent. rather depressing actually. it's a sarconic take on the usual "now you're gone i'm free" songs - cause even though he's gone, she's a mess and is lost.
