Jack's Mannequin - Ten Days Gone Lyrics




She's reading in the bedroom
The dog is in the yard
And I just got back from traveling hard

I've been ten days gone
I've been ten days gone 'cross the sea
With my girl in a house in the trees
I love her she knows
But sometimes my love goes
'Cross the sea

Paulette is in the garden
It's the first day of the fall
Lately I'm not getting no sleep at all
She said stay till you're strong
Soon you'll be gone
'Cross the sea

With your girl in a house in the trees
I love her she knows
But sometimes my love goes
'Cross the sea
The sea
The sea
The sea

I went to meet the boatman
He was smoking on his pipe
He said son you look ready
To travel tonight
I think he's right

Soon I'll be gone 'cross the sea
With my girl in a house in the trees
I love her she knows
But sometimes my love goes
'Cross the sea
Because she knows in the oceans I'm free
And it makes her so sad
But she never gets mad when I leave

  1. Becca Savi

    In love with this song.

  2. Voiddar

    Happy new year 2k18

  3. Elly McGee

    Every song I hear paints a scene in my head. I love what this one shows me. It makes me feel calm and hopeful.

  4. Sharonda Dickerson

    This song should be a single,and should be on the radio.

  5. Jenni Rodriguez

    This is one of my favorites, it's so chill.

  6. Savannah Milligan

    Kind of reminds me of Paul Simon's song Slip Slidin' Away, or at least in the begining. I love it!

  7. Shady Tyrell

    For some reason this song makes me so depressed to the point of tears. Every time i hear that piano solo i get chills and my stomach turns. That's when you know your a good artist, when the music literally touches your listeners. JM is amazing.

    Cicixx

    Hope you listen to Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness

  8. ojyumm542

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA...Nice

  9. NiteBandit282

    that warble/echo effect makes the song somewhat clustered. I like the live version of just him and the piano, it's alot more clean sounding and there's more feeling in it.

  10. BoltroBankai

    Is JM trying to be The Moody Blues or something? lol

  11. ojyumm542

    it is... it's on the deluxe album

  12. Melissa Senger

    Why is this not on the album? :(
