Since You Went Away - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
by Michael Levine
You said you couldn't tell the doormat from my face,
You said if I had brains I would pawn them,
Could be I've finally gotten up off of my thumbs,
Could be that you're the one that was on them.
Cause the plants have grown,
The dog came home,
The bills are all getting paid,
Things are much better since you went away.
And I've changed my looks,I read new books,I've got friends that mean what they say,
Things are much better since you went away.
You said without your help I couldn't tie my shoes,
You said without a doubt I'd be stranded,
Could be that you were right and you had to fly the coop,
Could be the eagle finally has landed.
Cause the plants have grown,
The dog came home,
The bills are all getting paid,
Things are much better since you went away.
And I've changed my looks,I read new books,I've got friends that mean what they say,
Things are much better since you went away.
When I was younger I was told without another
I'd be incomplete and deflated,
My chosen one has chosen to befriend another,
And to my surprise I'm elated.
Cause the plants have grown,
The dog came home,
And the bills are all getting paid,
Things are much better since you went away.
And I've changed my looks,I read new books,I've got friends that mean what they say,
Things are much better since you went away.
Yeah, the plants have grown,
And the dog came home,
And the bills are all getting paid,
Things are much better since you went away.
And I've changed my looks,
And I read new books,I've got friends that mean what they say,
Things are much better since you went away.
Yeah, the plants have grown,
And I've got friends that talk to me now,
And I hope you never come back,
Don't ever darken up my door again,I hope I never see your face.
