Here When Gone by Jewel Kilcher I am a woman haunted by hands Even though I'm alone Traces of Pompey Across my skin And an invisible map Of where you've been It's dry road to Idaho A thirsty tongue across the land And soil so dry You could swallow and entire man Took the first road out of town Hoping that you were just skin deep Well I feel you like Some sort of phantom limb Beside me when I sleep Cause you are here when gone You are here when gone You are here when gone You are here when gone I watch another grey day unfold It's dusty wings Sometimes I wish I were more like Rocks and stones and things Sometimes I wish my heart Were not like flowers at all That way I wouldn't get butterflies When you called -begin extra- And the night swallows itself You can see it in the stars The moon blinks it's tired eyes I may be a thousand miles to nowhere Does that make me lost or found? Oh - is it that relative to if you're around? -end extra- And some birds abandon their young Cause the instinct is too strong to fly Well I feel like abandoning My guitar and my books and I'm afraid I don't know why Cause you are here when gone You are here when gone You are here when gone You are here when gone
