I never see you anymore, you're absent without leave

In life I learned a lot of things and what it brings to ya
And how it's good to be alone sometimes
I should've known you'd get an itch and you would switch on me
And runaway when day turned into night

'Cuz you're a good time sister, always out for something better
Just when I need a friend, you're absent without leave
Good time brother, called you friend when I knew better
Ain't got no time to spend, you're absent without leave

So many people that I found say they're down with ya
Then like a ship they sail on with a breeze
See in the sun, they get a touch and it's too much for 'em
They fall around you like the winter leaves

A little rain and they would run for cover
(I can still remember)
When no one else could see the need to shelter
(How could I forget?)
And knowing better times were round the corner
(Oh, I can still remember)
So now when summer skies turn into gray, here's what I say

Good time sister, always out for something better
Just when I need a friend, you're absent without leave
Good time brother, called you friend when I knew better
Ain't got no time to spend, you're absent without leave

Good time sister, always out for something better
Just when I need a friend, you're absent without leave
Good time brother, called you friend when I knew better
Ain't got no time to spend, you're absent without leave

I,I never hear, I never see you
(I never hear)
I never hear, I never see you no more
I never hear, I never see you
(I never hear)
I never hear, I never see you no more

I, I never hear, I never see you
(I never hear)
I never hear, I never see you no more
I never hear, I never see you
(I never hear)
I never hear, I never see you no more

Good time sister, always out for something better
Just when I need a friend, you're absent without leave
Good time brother, called you friend when I knew better
Ain't got no time to spend, you're absent without leave

Good time sister, always out for something better
(Absent summer brother)
Just when I need a friend, you're absent without leave
Good time brother, called you friend when I knew better
Ain't got no time to spend, you're absent without leave

Good time sister, always out for something better
Just when I need a friend, you're
(Yeah, ain't got no time to spend, you're)
Absent without leave
Good time brother, called you friend when I knew better
Ain't got no time to spend, you're absent without leave
