For a while
I sat there staring at the photograph
For a while
I cried and tried not to make a scene
There was a time,
When we were young
I used to make her laugh
But life is long,
My love has gone away from me

Chorus:
Gone away from me
Gone away from me
Life is long
My love has gone away from me
Gone away from me
Gone away from me
Life is long
My love has gone away from me

Lately I
Can’t seem to find myself no sleep at all
Lately I
Just lie awake here and dream
Of the time when she was mine
Felt like I had it all
But life is long,
My love has gone away from me

Chorus

Yesterday’s gone
Yesterday’s dead
Get it through your head
And walk away
Yesterday is gone
Ain’t no use hanging on
To a memory that only causes you pain

For a while
I sat there staring at the photograph
For a while
I cried and tried not to make a scene
There was a time,
When we were young
I used to make her laugh
But life is long,
My love has gone away from me

Chorus
