"Everytime You Go Away" as written by and Daryl Hall....
Hey!, if we can solve any problem
Then why do we lose so many tears
Oh, and so you go again
When the leading man appears
Always the same thing
Can't you see, we've got everything goin' on and on and on

Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you

Go on and go free, yeah
Maybe you're too close to see
I can feel your body move
It doesn't mean that much to me
I can't go on sayin' the same thing
Just can't you see, we've got everything do you even know we know

Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you, oh
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you

I can't go on sayin' the same thing
'Cause baby, can'tcha see, we've got everything goin' on and on and on

Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you

Looking at the pieces (Every time you go away)
Be careful (You take a piece of me with you)
(Every time you go away) Every time you go, every time you go
(You take a piece of me with you) You take a piece of me!
(Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you) Every time you go!

    General CommentThis song is an excellant display of the love between two people who can't seem to let go but can't seem to come together in harmoney because one person doesn't realize how amazing their relationship can be. The stab in it, is that this person keeps going back or opening their heart to other people who aren't right for them and are failed relationships from the start. Most likely because of their past experiences in life and love. They've been hurt so many times that the only love they know is the wrong kind and the love the truly doesn't exist. So people tend to continue unhealthy patterns because once a person sets precedent for something, it's hard to break. Everytime they do this, they break the narrators heart and keep taking a little piece of it. But the narrorator has made teh decision to end this cycle because even though there are reasons for the reality, that person always has a choice. Regardless of fear, pride or whatever the reason, a person can always take a chance if they choose to.

    General CommentThe song was originally performed and written by Hall & Oates, on an album that appeared in 1980 and was redone on a Paul Young album in 1985. The song is about missing his lover when she leaves, wanting her around more.

    General CommentSuch true lyrics, having a little piece of you go everytime they leave, feeling so incomplete. Sung with true blue eyed soul, too

    My InterpretationFor me this song has a flavour of a trio situation. A married woman taking a lover and even though they have endured the difficulties of remaining in their "forbidden love" she always goes back to her husband (the leading man) its a repetative distructive cycle. The lover feels like a piece of his heart is taken away every time she goes back and he truly believes he loves her and that what they have is special and real (we got it going on)

    Hey, If we can solve any problem
    Then why do we lose so many tears
    Oh, and so you go again
    When the leading man appears
    Always the same thing
    Can't you see, we've got everything goin' on and on and on
    Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you

    Go on and go free, yeah
    Maybe you're too close to see
    I can feel yor body move
    It doesn't mean that much to me

    He is wanting to let her go but maybe she is too close/closed into her own selfishness to see his pain
    He can feel her body move (ref to sex and it being only about sex for her)
    It doesn't mean that much to him because he wants more than a sexual relationship

    Thats what I see in this song anyways
