Written by Gary Burr, "Can't Be Really Gone" is a ballad where the narrator observes the various items that his lover has left behind. He tells himself that she "can't be really gone" if she has left behind an unfinished book and her favorite shoes.
Stephen Thomas Erlewine and Thom Jurek, in their review of the album, said that McGraw delivered the song with sincerity, and that it and other similar songs showed his artistic growth over Not a Moment Too Soon, his last album.
