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
