"Since I Lost You" as written by and Michael/collins Rutherford....
It seems in a moment, your whole world can shatter
Like morning dreams they just disappear
Like dust in your hand falling to the floor
How can life ever be the same

'Cause my heart is broken in pieces
Yes my heart is broken in pieces
Since you've been gone

It's all too easy to take so much for granted
But it's so hard to find the words to say
Like a castle in the sand the water takes away
How can life ever be the same

'Cause my heart is broken in pieces
Yes my heart is broken in pieces
Since I've lost you

Ooh now you'll never see
Ooh now you'll never know
All the things I planned for you
Things for you and me

I held your hand so tightly
That I couldn't let it go
Now how can life ever be the same

'Cause my heart is broken in pieces
Yes my heart is broken in pieces
Since you've been gone

    General CommentI agree with you. 'Since I Lost You' IS a beautiful song about heartbreak, and 'Fading Lights' is about remembering all the memories of and loving life.

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song.....so sad. It is also a known(or maybe not so well known) fact that Phil Collins wrote this song following the death of Eric Clapton's little son Connor. Collins wrote this song for the child and his father....makes it even sadder to think about it....

    General Commentsuch a sad song but i love it!

    precedes fading lights on the we cant dance album. i like to look at the two as a combo detailing the coming to terms of the death of a loved one.

    firstly the disbelief/heartbreak. things were left unsaid, before they knew it it was all too late.

    secondly (fading lights) the realisation. the memory still remains but the effects have made the person value life and those around them.

    hey im prob wrong (being as i just made this up i dont think its too bad!!)

    ah well
