Though you havenít left me yet, I know youíre just as good as gone

I stand here in the doorway of the room where you lie sleeping
In hopes that I donít wake you up with the sounds of my weeping

It breaks my heart to see you laying there
Alone in the bed we used to share
ĎCause you no longer want me and I wonder what went wrong
Though you havenít left me yet, I know youíre just as good as gone

Thereís so much more between us than just these lonely walls
The echoes of our dying love lingers in the halls
Living separately together in a house thatís not a home
Though you havenít left me yet, I know youíre just as good as gone

Through the eyes of a broken heart, I watch my whole world fall apart
Iím trying to revive a love thatís died
Hopelessly I'm holding on to a love I know is gone
Gone, but not because I havenít tried
Disappearing from your door way now the hurt is twice as strong
Though you havenít left me yet, I know youíre just as good as gone

Though you havenít left me yet, I know youíre just as good as gone
