Won't Be Coming Home

Robert Cray BandBuy this song

As her car pulls out the driveway 
And she don't wave goodbye 
Her last words echo in my mind
 Listen honey, I gotta get away

I'm standing here watching her tail lights 
As if they're some kind of sign
 Fading into a memory 
I just got tired of trying 

So long, I hate to see you go
So I save my tears for later on down the road
How come I keep I holding on
 Knowing you won't be coming home

Two days later I get a letter 
A picture of a room in some hotel  Sitting framed up on the table, 
A picture I know so well
You've painted yourself into a corner 
Now you're trying to paint something new
And your lipstick on the letter 
Is a goodbye kiss from you

So long, I hate to see you go
So I save my tears for later on down the road
How come I keep I holding on
 Knowing you won't be coming home

I still set the table  Still set it for you and me
It's become a habit 
My own personal make believe 

So long, I hate to see you go
So I save my tears for later on down the road
How come I keeW I holding on
 Knowing you won't be coming home

So long, I hate to see you go
So I save my tears for later on down the road
How come I keep I holding on
 Knowing you won't be coming home
