Since Jessie Went Away

Since Jessie Went Away

This house is so damn quiet
You can hear a heart break
This silence is killing me
It’s more than I can take
I wish someone would yell
I wish someone would shout
Jessie won’t you come back home

Her clothes are in the closet
Her pillow’s on the bed
We all stare at each other
But not one word is said
I wish someone would yell
Just scream her name out loud
Oh Jessie where have you gone

Chorus:
Jessie’s with the angels
Way out in space
Where the milky way flows
Like the tears down my face
I cry some for Jessie
I cry some for me
Mostly I cry for the things
That never will be
Jessie’s with the angels
I haven’t seen one in days
Since Jessie went away

Sometimes I wake up at night
And I reach out for her
The empty space beside me
Serves as a reminder
That she is gone for good
That she ain’t coming back
You know she was my best friend

You can’t get it together
When you’re falling apart
I want to be strong for her
But that is pretty hard
When she is gone for good
And it’s a cold hard fact
I’ll never hold her again

Chorus:
Jessie’s with the angels
Way out in space
Where the milky way flows
Like the tears down my face
I cry some for Jessie
I cry some for me
Mostly I cry for the things
That never will be
Jessie’s with the angels
I haven’t seen one in days
Since Jessie went away

Bridge:
So I sit here
Listening to pins drop
I don’t know what is
But I know what’s not
I’m not doing so good
No I’m not OK
I miss Jessie
In a real big way

Chorus:
Jessie’s with the angels
Way out in space
Where the milky way flows
Like the tears down my face
I cry some for Jessie
I cry some for me
Mostly I cry for the things
That never will be
Jessie’s with the angels
I haven’t seen one in days
Since Jessie went away
