"Away" as written by and Kathleen Margaret Edwards....
I remember the way,
Driving home late,
Speeding all the way.
Alone in the rain.
I was rehearsing a part
From down at the bar.
My mouth smelled like a drink
We were laughing, I think,
I've been away.
I've been away.
I've been away.

Do you pick up the phone,
Do you check your mail,
Do you answer your door even if it's late?
I don't know who to call,
I don't know who to write,
And I think I forgot
What your face looks like.
I've been away.
I've been away.
I've been away.

Do you think that I've changed?
I swear I never tried.
Memory is a terrible thing.
When you use it right.
I was rehearsing a part
From down at the bar.
My mouth smelled like a drink.
We were laughing, I think,
I've been away.
I've been away.
I've been away.

    Song MeaningTo me, it sounds like someone who is recovering from a traumatic brain injury after an awful automobile collision "Driving home late, Speeding all the way. Alone in the rain."
    My own cousin survived a such a collision. He recovered physical mobility but due to the brain injury continues to experience something akin to amnesia. Even to the extent that he maintains that his name is Joe rather than his actual name Mike. In some other ways he's as sharp or sharper than he was prior to his injury thirty some years ago but other ways quite obviously not.
