Oh baby, there's a letter on the floor
That I just can't read no more
'Cause the words upon its face are sayin' goodbye

There's a plate upon the table
Filled with food I could not eat
There's a made-up bed in the bedroom where I couldn't sleep

I just sit and weep
Oh baby, that's how it is since you've been gone
That's how it is, I'm so all alone

Now the curtains are drawn in my lonely room
And the darkness fills the air
And this old empty heart of mine is in despair

Even though the tears I shed
Washed the words away
I could still remember every word you had to say

They just wouldn't go away
Oh baby, that's how it is since you've been gone
That's how it is, I'm so all alone

Oh baby, you knew right from the start
That my heart was in your hands
And your every, every wish, boy, was my command

That's why I can't understand
How you could leave me here helpless, dear
Alone and afraid, oh how could such a mistake be made?

But that's how it is since you've been gone
That's how it is, I'm so alone, oh baby
That's how it is since you've been gone
That's how it is, I'm so alone
