"Consider Me Gone" as written by Steve Diamond and Marv Green....
Every time I turn the conversation to something deeper
Than the weather I can feel you all but shuttin' down.
And when I need an explanation for the silence you
Just tell me you don't wanna talk about it now.

What you're not saying is coming in loud
And clear we're at a crossroads here

If I'm not the one thing you can't stand to lose
If I'm not that arrow to the heart of you
If you don't get drunk on my kiss
If you think you can do better than this then I guess we're done
Let's not drag this on
Consider me gone

With you I've always been wide open like a window or an ocean.
There is nothing I've ever tried to hide.
So when you leave me not knowin' where you're goin'
I start thinkin' that we're lookin' we're lookin' at goodbye.

How about a strong shot of honesty
Don't you owe that to me

If I'm not the one thing you can't stand to lose
If I'm not that arrow to the heart of you
If you don't get drunk on my kiss
If you think you can do better than this then I guess we're done
Let's not drag this on
Consider me gone.

Consider me a memory.
Consider me the past.
Consider me a smile in an old photograph
Someone who used to make you laugh.

If I'm not the one thing you can't stand to lose
If I'm not that arrow to the heart of you
Then I guess we're done let's not drag this on.
Consider me gone.
Consider me gone.
Consider me gone.
Just consider me gone.

    General CommentIt's pretty obvious what this song is about: her man's not giving 100% in the relationship and she isn't putting up with it. Kind of reminds me of Martina McBride's "Whatever You Say".

    My InterpretationTo me it seems like they are both involved in a dying relationship. The woman in the relationship seems like she has been trying so hard to keep the relationship alive, trying to no avail to get a response from her partner but he has checked himself out of the relationship a long time ago. He has given up on them, but for some reason he just can't seem to officially end it for them, and put them both out of their misery. I guess he just doesn't have the heart to tell her because maybe the woman is still taken by him, even though she knows it's in vain to try and save whatever they had in the past. And then, finally she asks him to just be upfront about their relationship for once because if he is not going to be devoted to making it work and correspond back to her feelings then they have no reason to stay together and they just end it now before they begin to regret each other.
