Already Gone
LIVE at the LARK- track 1
music and lyrics: Tracey Roberts © 2016


 

She’s done the marriage thing, doesn’t need a man
She’s been a gypsy all her life
Slept under bridges in Paris and Japan
Just to see what it was like…

She’s sailed across the Atlantic ocean  - twice
And been trekking in Nepal
I understand you want to have her for yourself
But you’ve been lucky to have had her at all…

She’s already gone
Butterflies never stay one place for long
See ya later, she’s not into hanging on
She’s already gone…

Did ya think you’d hike with her along the Nullabor
Or herd her goats across Peru
She’s knocked back wedding offers from millionaires
She was never gonna stick around here with you…

She’s done the aid work in Ethiopia
And been a hooker in Tai Pei
If you follow her, her wings will knock you down
All you’re doin’ is getting in the way

She’s already gone
Butterflies never stay one place for long
See ya later, she’s not into hanging on
She’s already gone…

Sell your house
Renovate that van
You’re a travellin’ man

The kids don’t need you now a
Anymore
There’s the door

She’s already gone
Butterflies never stay one place for long
See ya later, she’s not into hanging on
She’s already gone…already gone
