Lyrics

INTRO
The empty bed
The ghostly ring still shimmers
wet from where your coffee cup once lay
The pillow dent
The quiet cruel reminder
of the words I'll never hear you say

And in the air
around the room
still hangs the warm familiar smell of your perfume
I hear you speak
But you're not there
I'm haunted by the thought that you no longer care

VERSE 1
I close my eyes
I see you walk towards me in that silver dress
I skip a beat
In quiet contemplation, I long for your caress

They gather round
But I see you
There's no one here but you and me
And all at once
the moment fades
I'm dragged back to reality

BRIDGE
Now you're gone I'm all alone
Surrounded, but none of them are you
You ripped a hole within my soul
so I can never be complete

And even though I try, I can't go on like this

CHORUS
'Cos it hurts like hell when you're gone
And I don't ever want to feel this way anymore
The light within my heart is giving way to the dark
and I can't feel.. 'cos nothing's real
And it hurts like hell

VERSE 2
It's been a while
I've tried to call
but still your voice is never heard
I ask around,
Abandoned everyone
and gone without a word

And all the photos
on my phone
Show no signs that you would leave
The plans we made
The things you'd said
I wonder how I failed to see

BRIDGE

CHORUS

MIDDLE EIGHT
I always thought you felt the same way
I hoped that we'd fight through it all
If I could only see through your eyes
I'd understand a little more...
but I'm not sure

SOLO

BRIDGE

CHORUS
'Cos it hurts like hell when you're gone
And I don't ever want to feel this way anymore
The light within my heart is giving way to the dark
and I can't feel.. 'cos nothing's real

'Cos it hurts like hell when you're gone
And I don't ever want to feel this way anymore
The light within my heart is giving way to the dark
and I can't feel.. 'cos nothing's real
