She’s Gone

Favorite Line(s):
Get up in the morning
Look in the mirror
I’m worn as a tooth brush hanging
In the stand
My face ain’t looking any younger
Now I can see
Love’s taken her
Toll on me

Back in Germany, when I was in the Army, my roommate was a former college DJ from Texas.  He found out I enjoyed rhythm and blues music and he turned me on to a group he said was going to be a breakout group “someday”.  They did end up with a few top-40 hits, but they were never as big as I thought they might have been.
The group was Hall and Oates and my favorite song by them is “She’s Gone“.  It has two of my all-time favorite lines from any song in the lyrics.  The first is about getting up, looking in a mirror and looking as worn as a toothbrush hanging in the stand.  If you keep the same brushes as long as I have (DO!), you have a vivid image of how worn out he is.
The second great line is about going to the city to let the carbon and monoxide choke your thoughts away.  Summer nights!  Sometimes, it just beez that way!
As usual, enjoy the imagery and poetry of the lyrics, then go listen to Hall and Oates perform the song!
