Hey
If we can't solve any problems
And why do we lose so many tears?
Oh
So you go again when the leading man appears.
Always the same theme

Can't you see
We've got ev'rything going on and on and on.
Ev'ry time you go away you take a piece of me with you.
Ev'ry time you go away you take a piece of me with you.

Go on and go free
Maybe you're too close to see.
I can feel your body move
Does it mean that much to me.
I can't go on singing the same theme
'cause can't you see
We've got ev'rything
Baby
Even though you know:
Ev'ry time you go away you take a piece of me with you.
Ev'ry time you go away you take a piece of me with you.

Can't go on singing the same theme
'cause baby
Can't you see
We've got ev'rything going on and on and on.
Ev'ry time you go away you take a piece of me with you.
Ev'ry time you go away you take a piece of me with you.
Ev'ry time you go away you take a piece of me with you.
Ev'ry time
Ev'ry time you go away - but I don't care -
You take a piece of me with you. Ev'ry time you go away -
Ev'ry time you go away - don't leave me all alone

And breakin' up a piece of me. Ey'ry time you go away.

    Feeling breaking apart when the girl you love so dearly doesn't care as much as you do. Wishfully, the girl could remember a part of you, while you love her in whole.

    It talks about love & the heart ache of not having him/her with you. It's telling your heart and the love of your life "GOODBYE" kinda like stepping outside & looking at yourself and letting go. Ie: She slips off the edge of the cliff & you grab and hold on for dear life, not wanting to let your loved-one go but your losing strength & shes sees you crying and hears you say I'll never let go but you can't hold onto her anymore. She disappears from your grasp and you lose her forever.
