ALREADY GONE - words & music by Nate Butler
So I was headin' out to the coast anyway, and she seemed nice enough, so I said, "Sure, we'll leave at eight." She showed up two hours late and brought along all of her tapes so that she could play D.J. all the way to San Jose.

She's got to hear one song again and again; it never seemed so long
And I'm already gone

So we heard one song for about eighty miles! She wasn't my dream girl or anything but she did promise certain favors; like, she'd let me read her authentic collection of Flash comic books; you know, the guy on D.C.

She wants to die, wants me to care, and still makes me feel like I'm not there
And I'm already gone

She says, "Bye bye, wanna thank you for the ride,
But if you wanna stay, we can waste another day like today;
You need a getaway!"
And I'm already gone

I'm not an asshole. I just like having a little space to myself, y'know? So if you call me on the phone, leave a message.
I'm not around; I just headed out.
And I'm already gone
