"And Then You Went Away" as written by and Brian Vander Ark....
I've been living in here long enough,
Reminds of when times were tough.
'Cause I still think about you every day,
It's like you never really went away.

There were no signs, there were no warnings,
Saying that it's over.
All you left behind was everything.

You hung your favorite picture so you could see it everyday.
Then you went away and then you went away.
Its by the window garden you said you'd water everyday.
Then you went away and then you went away.

It's been a while and I feel alright.
And you can call me day or night
â??Cause I don't think about you anymore.
In fact some of your things went out the door.

The only words that make me feel better
Are saying that it's over.
All you left behind was everything .

Slipped on the velvet curtains, the ones that you had custom made.
Then you went away and then you went away.
And there's my new best friend, the one you took in as a stray.
Then you went away and then you went away.

Guess it's not over yet,
'Cause when I'm ready to forget
I remember where I am.

'Cause there's a photograph that you had put up on display.
Then you went away and then you went away.
And there's a box of letters that had me thinking you would stay.
Then you went away and then you went away.
And there's a coffee table you said would not be in the way.
Then you went away and then you went away
And in the window garden the leaves are falling in decay,
Since you went away and then you went away.
