"Gone" as written by and Dave Grusin....
Since you're gone
I don't go out
I mope in the house
Yeah and since you're gone
The days and nights are long.

Oh this is nothing like I've pictured
Forgot what it was like to miss you.
There's no one to take for granted
Now you're gone.

I'm sorry
I'm sorry
Come back
Come back
Oh I don't know what I'm supposed to do with myself
Come back
Come back
Come back

Since you're gone
I lock the house
I keep the curtains closed.
And since you're gone
I don't do much of anything at all.
Oh this is nothing like I've pictured
Forgot what it was like to miss you.
There's no one to take for granted
Now you're gone.

I'm sorry
I'm sorry
Come back
Come back
I don't know what I'm supposed to do with myself
Come back
Come back

Oh no, I've forgotten what it's like to miss you.
Oh, oh no, I didn't know
This will be nothing like I pictured.
Oh, oh no, I've forgotten what it's like to miss you.
Oh, oh no, oh, oh no.

I'm sorry
I'm sorry
Come back
Come back
Oh I don't know what I'm supposed to do with myself
Come back
Come back
Come back

Why did I hurt you?
Why did I let you?
Why did I let you, let you go?
Come back

    General CommentThis is one of my favorites.

    She's reminiscing the old days of our youth, and what happens as we become adults.
    The last paragraph, however, seems to imply that she'll "still be here", maybe meaning her immaturity or lack of capacity/motivation to grow, because while she knows these days are gone, she still clings to them.

    Just my interpretation.
