"He's Gone" as written by and Codling/anderson....
Tears on a pillow eyes on the phone

you pour all the love that you keep inside into a song

Like "He's Gone" and these are the thoughts that you keep inside

You smile from your window and stand all alone

And pour all the love that you keep inside into the phone into the phone



And like the leaves on the trees

Like the Carpenters song

Like the planes and the trains

and the lives that were young he's gone

And it feels like the words to a song



With the style of a widow, and a place of your own

you pour all the love that you keep inside into the phone,

and sit alone

'cause these are the thoughts that you keep inside

And you smile from your window and stand all alone

and pour all the love that you keep inside into a song, into a song



And like the leaves on the trees,

Like the Carpenters song,

Like the planes and the trains

and the lives that were young, he's gone

And it feels like the words to a song

And like the stains on the names of the lives that were young, he's gone

And it feels like the words to a song,



And like the leaves on the trees,

Like the Carpenters song,

Like the planes and the trains

and the lives that were young, he's gone

And it feels like the words to a song

And like the stains on the names of the lives that were young, he's gone

And it feels like the words to a song,

So gone, so gone....

    General CommentIn a mostly drunken state I submitted the lyrics to this directly from the CD notes.

    I've listened to this song for a few years and it suddenly 'clicked' with me that this song is about Bernard. It couldn't be more obvious. Brett is a sincere person and it's clear that the loss of this great guitarist, songwriting partner, and friend, affected him deeply; and why would it not? It's just peculiar that it only occurs to me now that this song is about Bernard, and with this context in mind the song is profound and endearingly sincere.
