Avril Lavigne – When You're Gone lyrics

[Intro - Instrumental (16 seconds)]

[Verse 1]
I always needed time
On my own
I never thought that I'd,
Need you there when I cry


And the days feel like years
When I'm alone
And the bed where you lie
Is made up on your side


[Pre-Chorus]
When you walk away
I count the steps that you take
Do you see how much I need you right now?

[Chorus]
When you're gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
When you're gone
The face I came to know is missing too

When you're gone,
All the words I need to hear to always
Get me through the day
And make it OK...

I miss you...

[Verse 2]
I've never felt
This way before
Everything that I do
Reminds me of you

And the clothes you left
They lie on the floor
And they smell just like you
I love the things that you do

[Pre-Chorus]
When you walk away
I count the steps that you take
Do you see how much I need you right now?

[Chorus]
When you're gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
When you're gone
The face I came to know is missing too

And when you're gone
The words I need to hear to always
Get me through the day
And make it OK...

I miss you...

[Verse 3]
We were made for each other
Out here forever
I know we were
Yeah Yeah

All I ever wanted was for you to know
Everything I do I give my heart and soul
I can hardly breathe
I need to feel you here with me...
Yeah!

[Chorus]
When you're gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you...
When you're gone
The face I came to know is missing too...
When you're gone
The words I need to hear to always
Get me through the day...
And make it OK...

I miss you..

[Instrumental - 15 seconds]

    This song means alot to me cuz my boyfriend is in afghanistan and I went to his apartment the other day to make sure everything was alright I laid in his bed and just cried. I miss him so much. Its just so hard right now. I worry everyday that he may not come back. I had a dream about him the other night and reached over to hold him and I didn't feel anything so I woke up and realized he wasnt there. :(

    This song is about loving somebody so much and for whatever situation in life, you are no longer able to be with them. Like in the music video where the two young love birds are forced to be apart because the girl's mother does not approve. Or the expecting mother who has a husband/boyfriend away in a war where she may never see him alive again. Or even the old widower who lost his wife and is in pain with grief. The song talks about the pain of seperation. But even though they go through it, they all find the strength from their love to go on and to eventually be reunited in some way shape or form. Even though their love is over or up in the air, their love truely never dies so long as the memory of loving that individual remains in their hearts.

    I dedicate this song to my mama in heaven she's been dead for about four or five years. Her name is Karen and I still keep her in my heart and I still love her. I miss her so much. It also reminds me of my first lover. His name is Matt. I am now able to talk to him after a year of not seein him. We are real good friends. But I can only talk to him on Myspace. That depresses me now. I am also moving skools next year. So I dedicate this song to all ma peeps frm ma skool. I love yall!

    Most of you have dedicated this song to your boyfriends or exes but I dedicate this song to my father. He works in another city and is barely home. I really miss him when he's away. I love my father more than anything. When I miss him badly I usually cry with his picture in my hands. I miss the things we do together. Whenever I miss him, I listen this song. I also sang this song to him on fathers' day and by the end of the song he had tears streaming down his face. I Love You Dad!

    This song is super-relatable. Honestly, I could not put my ipod down after first listening to this. My meaning of this song is that you should always cherish the moments you have with someone you hold dearly to your heart before it's too late. I got through my cousin's death by listening to this song. I used to always sit in bed on a sunday night and whenever I missed him, I listened to this song and fell asleep, forgetting all about it. I praise avril lavigne for this song. The words have lyrical meaning, and it has helped many through their darkest hours.
