And then You Went Away - Brian Vander Ark

I've been living in here long enough
It reminds me of when times were tough
I still think of you everday
It's like you never really went away

There were no signs
There were no warnings
Saying that it's over
All you left behind was everything

You hung your favorite picture
So you could see it everyday
Then you went away, and then you went away
It's by the window garden
That you said you'd water everyday
Then you went away, and then you went away

It's been awhile and I feel alright
You can call me day or night
Because I don't think about you anymore
In fact some of your things went out the door

The only words that make me feel better
Are saying that it's over
All you left behind was everything

Slipped down the velvet curtains
The ones that you had custom made
Then you went away, and then you went away
And there's my new best friend
The one you took in as a stray
Then you went away, and then you went away

I guess its not over yet
Cause when I'm ready to forget
I remember where I am

Cause there's a photograph
That you put up on display
Then you went away, and then you went away
And there's a box of letters
That had me thinking you would stay
Then you went away, and then you went away
And there's a coffee table
That you said would not be in the way
Then you went away, and then you went away
And in the window garden
The leaves are falling in decay
Since you went away, and then you went away
