When He's Gone
 Stormy nights, I've been waiting
 Satisfy you, oh yeah
 But his love is just a game
 And he's selling you the same old lies
 And I'm hangin' on the wire
 And no closer to the fire
 And you don't hear me when I cry
 You may need someone to lean upon
 When he's gone, when he's gone
 And what is left is a love so strong
 When he's gone, when he's gone
 You wouldn't believe to what extent
 My mind is going to
 You wouldn't deny me in your dreams
 You couldn't belong to someone else
 If you could see me now
 And I'd be the only one
 When he's gone
 My understanding that you remember
 For whom the bell tolls, oh yeah
 I swear to you I pray
 That you feel the battle rage
 For the saving of my soul
 And it's a struggle to survive
 You know it's keepin' us alive
 And baby I don't wanna die
 I will be someone you lean upon
 When he's gone, when he's gone
 And what is left is a love so strong
 When he's gone, when he's gone
 You wouldn't believe to what extent
 My mind is going to
 You wouldn't deny me in your dreams
 You couldn't belong to someone else
 If you could see me now
 And I'd be the only one
 When he's gone
 I will be someone you lean upon
 When he's gone, when he's gone
 And what is left is a love so strong
 When he's gone, when he's gone
 I will be someone you lean upon
 When he's gone, when he's gone
 Don't tell me it's too late
 And your love don't make me wait
 I can see the end of time
 With a love that makes you mine
 And tonight I let you know
 There's a love that won't let go
