Riccardo Cocciante – When Love Has Gone Away lyrics

When love has gone away
Just like my love has gone away
Without a word of explanation
Without a reason

Feel the pain creeping
Through your heart
Feel a lump coming
To your throat

You feel your head is empty
And you just don't understand

Then you don't care
For fun and friendship
Then you don't care
For drink and dancing

Then you don't care for
Life and love and death
And you don't care for nothing

Deep in your heart
You feel it must be mourning
And you've tried to
Look back upon the past

But you can never find a reason
Because there is no reason
Why love should die

You wish you could change your face
And you wish you could change your name
And you wish you could change your soul
And you wish you could change your life
And you wish you could change the world

But you know, definitely
That it's not even worth trying
Because you're there
Because you're there
Because you're there
Because you're there

Because you're there inside your bones
Because you're there inside your brain
Because you're there inside your life
And you're aware, you'll never
Let yourself free

Even if you could change your face
Even if you could change your name
Even if you could change your soul
Even if you could change your life
Even if you could change the world

Yet when you realize
You can think it over
Your love in your eyes and you see
She's no longer the girl to love
Cause time has slipped away

Each day, you learn a little bit more
And maybe one day you'll find
You can't forget her, maybe

When you realize
You can think it over
When you realize
You can think it over
But you just can't because

When love has gone away
Just like my love has gone away
Without a word of explanation
Without a reason

Feel the pain creeping
Through your heart
And then coming
Into your throat

You feel your head is empty
And you just don't understand

Then you don't care
For fun and friendship
Then you don't care
For drink and dancing

Then you don't care for
Life and love and death
And you don't care for nothing

Deep in your heart
You feel it must be mourning
And you've tried to
Look back upon the past

But you can never find a reason
Because there is no reason
Why love should die

No, no, no, no, no, no
