WHEN YOU'RE GONE
(Jagger, Richards, Wood)

I donít want to think about you when youíre gone
I donít want to hear your voice talk on the phone
All those notes and all those cards
I'm going to throw them in the yard
Iím going to put them in the trash where they belong

I just want a clean slate, I think I will redecorate
Slap some fresh new colors on the walls
Iíll throw away your letters and rip up all your sweaters
You canít haunt me, you canít taunt me when youíre gone, ah yeah

Accentuate the positive, thatís what the people say
Talk it up, don't let it get you down
But thereís so many negatives that pass along the way
Throw them in the river, let 'em drown

Bury them in the ground, yeah

I donít want to read about you when youíre gone
I donít want to hear about the things you've done
I put a filter in my brain, I want to cut out all that pain
I don't want to hear about you when youíre gone

Donít want to hear those melodies, they're like a touch of leprosy
I've grown to hate our favourite song
If I hear it on the radio, I grab the damn remote control
You canít haunt me, you canít taunt me when youíre gone, aah

When youíre gone
All right
