While You Were Gone

I read you wrong
You said you'd only be away a while
But the days turned into weeks
And the weeks into miles
Baby, why?
You could've told me you were telling me goodbye
Could've come clean and let me walk away in style
 
The funny thing is
While I was missing you
While I was figuring what was I gonna do
 
[Refrain:]
I got wise, I got hip
I caught on to your tricks
I got over it real quick, yeah, baby
While you were gone
Now I'm cool
Can't you tell
I feel so good about myself
Funny thing happened to me, baby
While you were gone
 
You look surprised
Like no one ever left you and survived
But leaving me alone
Has kinda opened my eyes
Baby, you, you gave me the time to find somebody new
And I found strength inside of me I never knew
 
The funny thing is
While he was holding me
While he was showing me how it's supposed to be
 
[Refrain:]
I got wise, I got hip
I caught on to your tricks
I got over it real quick, yeah, baby
While you were gone
Now I'm cool
Can't you tell
I feel so good about myself
Funny thing happened to me, baby
While you were gone
 
Didn't break
Didn't cry
I just tell my head I'm fine
I learned how to say goodbye
While you were gone
I had time on my hands
Boy, what don't you understand?
Funny thing happened to me, baby
While you were gone
 
While you were gone
I got strong
While you were gone
I learned how to get along
I got strong
While you were gone
 
While he was holding me
While he was showing me how it's supposed to be
 
[Refrain:]
Didn't break
Didn't cry
I just tell my head I'm fine
I learned how to say goodbye
While you were gone
I had time on my hands
Boy, what don't you understand?
Funny thing happened to me, baby
While you were gone
 
I got wise, I got hip
I caught on to your tricks
I got over it real quick, yeah, baby
While you were gone
Now I'm cool
Can't you tell
I feel so good about myself
Funny thing happened to me, baby
While you were gone
