"Maybe After He's Gone" as written by and C. White....
She told me she loved me
With words as soft as morning rain
But the light that fell upon me
Turned to shadow when he came

Maybe after he's gone
She'll come back, love me again
Maybe after he's gone
She'll come back, want me again

I remember joy and pain
Her smile, her tears are part of me
I feel I'll never breathe again
I feel life's gone from me

Maybe after he's gone
She'll come back, love me again
Maybe after he's gone
She'll come back, want me again

All the days
And all the nights
Are time just passing by
And all the dreams I'm dreaming now
Hide the tears that I cry

I feel so cold
I'm on my own
As the night folds in around me
Night surrounds me
I'm alone

Maybe after he's gone
She'll come back, love me again
Maybe after he's gone
She'll come back, want me again

Maybe after he's gone
She'll come back, love me again
Maybe after he's gone
She'll come back, want me again

Maybe after he's gone
She'll come back, love me again
After he's gone
She'll come back, love me again

    General CommentI think it's a guy clinging on to a love that's lost (ex-girlfriend). The she has moved on with another man, and this guy still loves her. "Maybe after he's gone, she'll come back, love me again." He can't let her go.

    General CommentTHE OPENING LYRICS OF THIS SONG ARE SO EFFECTIVE...THE STRONG SENSATION OF BEEING LOVED AND JUST AFTER THE CERTAINTY THAT DENY THAT FEELING.

    General CommentPerhaps the saddest song i've heard in a while.

    This is a song about desperation and the idea that even though you're second best, it's still okay to strive for the girl who doesn't like you anymore. This person thinks he is worthless without his honey.
