After you've gone, after you've gone away

After you've gone, after the break up
After you've gone, you are gonna wake up
And you will find that you were blind
To let somebody come and change your mind

After the years that we've been together
The joy and all the tears, in all types of weather
Someday when you're down-hearted
You'll long to be with me right back where we started
After you've gone, after you've gone away

Oh babe think what you're doin'
You know my love for you will drive me to ruin
After you've gone, after you've gone away
