It's nice when bad situations turn into art later.

lyrics

When I remember those days
I see your face lined with pain
Inventing things I’d never say
But held against me anyway

You never knew me that well
And why I just could never tell
The years like water they rolled on
And now every hope we had is --

Gone, gone, gone
It’s gone, gone, gone
Things I held to yesterday
The last time you saw this face
Are gone, gone, gone

I guess you changed and went your way
The things I thought we shared decayed
I was too slow to recognize
The distance growing in your eyes

While you acted like a saint
And chalked everything up to fate
I thought you’d see you’d been wrong
Now every thought of that is --

Gone, gone, gone
It’s gone, gone, gone
Things I held to yesterday
The last time you saw this face
Are gone, gone, gone

I still can’t help wonderin’
If we’d been older at the end
And maybe swallowed a little pride
If we’d have made it to the other side

But that’s gone, gone, gone
It’s gone, gone, gone
The things I held to yesterday
The last time I saw your face
Are gone, gone, gone

Yeah, they’re gone...
Gone...
Gone.
