How Can I Miss You
(When You Never Go Away)

Words and Music by M. Crolius

You know it's true I live alone
But late last night when I got home
There she was still layin' on the couch
I can't seem to throw that woman out

She didn't once look up at me
Just sat and stared at that damn TV
She said “Honey, did you miss me much today?"


How can I miss you when you never go away?
How can I miss you?
When every time I turn around
You’re always in the way

I put her things all in a sack
Tossed them in my Cadillac
Handed her the title and the keys
Still that woman didn't want to leave

She drove it once around the block
When she came back, I heard her knock
Before I locked the door she got back in

How can I miss you when you never go away?
How can I miss you?
When every time I turn around
You’re always in the way

I didn't think that much about it
There was just no doubt about it
It was time to take some action fast
The last thing I remember was

Passing all those fire trucks
Puttin' down the top
And stepping on the gas

How can I miss you when you never go away?
How can I miss you?
When every time I turn around
You’re always in the way
