Gone
words and music by Mike Vitale

Found a picture of the two of us while we were out drinking
You were smiling at the camera and I was blinking
And as quick as any moment ever comes along
There you were and now you're gone

Like a rowboat song floating on downstream
Maybe happiness and hurt in life is truly just a dream
'Cause like anything good that ever comes along
It floats downstream until it's gone

And as the crazy stops pacing between my ears
The silence between us goes from days to weeks to months to years
Boy you keep trying you're gonna make it worse
Until everything she says is cordial but terse

Fighting for a heart that'll never bend
it's like starring at love through a looking glass from the opposite end
It was close to you before you looked along
Now it's far away, and then it's gone

And as the crazy stops pacing between my ears
The silence between us goes from days to weeks to months to years
Boy you keep trying you're gonna make it worse
Until everything she says is cordial but terse

Found a picture of the two of us while we were out drinking
You were smiling at the camera and I was blinking
And as quick as any moment ever comes along
It floats downstream until it's gone

It was close to you before you looked along
Now it's far away and then it's gone

Because like anything good that ever comes along
You close your eyes and then it's gone
