"Gone Away From Me" as written by and Ray Lamontagne....
For a while
I sat there staring at the photograph
For a while
I cried and tried not to make a scene
There was a time,
When we were young
I used to make her laugh
But life is long,
My love has gone away from me

Chorus:
Gone away from me
Gone away from me
Life is long
My love has gone away from me
Gone away from me
Gone away from me
Life is long
My love has gone away from me

Lately I
Can?t seem to find myself no sleep at all
Lately I
Just lie awake here and dream
Of the time when she was mine
Felt like I had it all
But life is long,
My love has gone away from me

Chorus

Yesterday?s gone
Yesterday?s dead
Get it through your head
And walk away
Yesterday is gone
Ain?t no use hanging on
To a memory that only causes you pain

For a while
I sat there staring at the photograph
For a while
I cried and tried not to make a scene
There was a time,
When we were young
I used to make her laugh
But life is long,
My love has gone away from me

Chorus

    General CommentThis song has a 50's vibe to it. Lullaby"ish" in a way. Cool song.

    General CommentThis song cuts deep into the heart of anyone who has love and lost, or is still in love with someone who doesn't reciprocate. It's about grieving but moving on "life is long" wonderful sound.

    General Comment"Life is long".
    You dont hear that much, but after listening to this song I am forced to agree with Ray Lamontagne. His song is sad but it seems like the length of life has allowed him to accept his loss.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my grandparents
    my nana just died from cancer and my papa loved her so much he just relized how much too late.
    "There was a time when we were young
    I used to make her laugh
    But life is long, my love has gone away from me"
    She was young and she still had life in her to be lived.

    "Lately I can't seem to find myself no sleep at all
    Lately I just lie awake and hear and dream
    Of the time when she was mine"
    Felt like I had it all"
    when she died he didn't get a lick of sleep, b/c she wasn't there beside him
