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.

    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.

    This was playing in the background while we were breaking up for the tenth and final time. We just couldn't solve our problems, but we also couldn't stand not being together. Every time i hear this song, i'm right back in that diner, he's sitting across from me and i'm trying not to cry in public. Now i just let the tears flow. Miss him...

    When i was dating the man i later married, this song was one of our favorites... Now 20 some years later, he left me. This song popped into my head last night. It describes how i feel everytime i see him now for a brief moment and then he leaves again... Good song though. Back when mtv was good.

    A man is in love with a woman... But she is in love with someone else... Every time that this someone else disappoints her she finds comfort in the first one... But then she leaves him again and again... And he can not handle this anymore he wants her to understand that he wants her to be with him only...
