​When I'm Gone

This song is by A.J. Croce and appears on the album Cantos (2006).

It's peculiar she wants me by her side
I'm like her cyanide she only really wants me when I'm gone
When I'm near her she cuts me like a knife
I wish for ten to life because she only wants me when I'm gone

When I'm gone
She don't need somebody else
When I'm gone
She can't take being by herself

Complicated I'm just her ball and chain
It's almost inhumane she only wants me when I'm gone
She's a riddle that I can't figure out
At least there is no doubt she only really wants when I'm gone

It's a little bit confusing a little bit amusing
But I just can't walk out that door
I forget what life was like before
