Anyone that has lost someone close to them knows the footprints that are left behind. Quite literally it can be footprints left in the mud, books left unread, and a lipstick print on a coffee cup. "I'm Gone" is a song that tells the tale of a loved one looking back in and seeing things as they were left. The emotions and images the song brings forth are honest and raw, and tell a true story that all can relate to.

"I'm Gone"- Mandy Ringdal

Got a kitchen full of food, I'm not gonna eat

The bed that I laid in, is not made

Got those clothes in my closet with the sale tag still on

And all that you know is I'm gone

Got a bottle of perfume you won't smell on my skin

The bookmark is still where I would start again

I wrote all those notes that won't get sent to you

But you're knowin by now that we're through

Chorus:

Got a pile of my things all over the place

There's pictures of me and you that can't be erased

I'm wanderin' around, don't know what to do

'Cause I left in a hurry and I forgot to take you

Verse:

Got those cheques in my wallet that I'll never cash

The grass in the yard, it stays long

There's a lipstick print on my coffee cup

And all that you know is I'm gone

Chorus:

Got a pile of my things all over the place

There's pictures of me and you that can't be erased

I'm wanderin' around, don't know what to do

'Cause I left in a hurry and I forgot to take you

Bridge:

Those words in my head that were meant for you

Got lost in the moment when I had to leave you

Chorus:

Now there's a pile of my things all over the place

There's pictures of me and you that can't be erased

I'm wanderin' around, don't know what to do

'Cause I left in a hurry and I forgot to take you

Tag:

I hope you read all those notes that I wouldn't send

And you'll know I loved you in the end
