"By The Way" as written by Christopher A. Daughtry, Brian Craddock, Tyler Patrick Connolly, Dean Henning Back and David J. Brenner....
A note by the door
Simply explains
It's all that remains
It's no wonder why
I have not slept in days
The dust on the floor
Piled up from the years
All those scars and souvenirs
Now that you're gone
It's easy to see
But so hard to believe

By the way
You left without saying
Goodbye to me
Now that you're gone away
All I can think about is
You and me
You and me

It's not like before
You've left nothing here
It's all disappeared
It hurts me to see
That we've been a lie
Would it have hurt you to try?

By the way
You left without saying
Goodbye to me
Now that you're gone away
All I can think about is
You and me
You and me

It's sad to say that
This pain is killing me inside
But it's time to say
That this pain is keeping me alive
Twisting and turning
It rips through my heart
It's been tearing me apart

By the way
You left without saying
Goodbye to me
Now that you're gone away
All I can think about is
You and me
You and me

All I think about now
Is you and me
You and me
All I think about now
Is you and me
You and me

By the way
By the way
By the way

    General CommentSometimes - leaving a person is the only thing you can do. It gives them time for reflection and time to consider thier own behavior which drove the other person away in the first place.

    General CommentI'm still wondering why I don't own this CD. Just when I thought there was no way they were gonna put out a better CD than "Gasoline" they destroyed that CD with "Scars and Souvenirs". This song is a great song along with a lot more from this album.
