Suddenly, you were gone From all the lives you left your mark upon
I remember How we talked and drank into the misty dawn I hear the voices
We ran by the water on the wet summer lawn I see the footprints I remember
I feel the way you would I feel the way you would I feel, I feel the way you would
Tried to believe but you know it's no good This is something that just can't be understood
I remember The shouts of joy, skiing fast through the woods I hear the echoes
I learned your love for life I feel the way that you would I feel your presence I remember
I feel the way you would I feel the way you would I feel, I feel the way you would This just can't be understood
I tried to believe but you know it's no good This is something that just can't be understood
I feel the way you would I feel the way you would I feel, I feel the way you would This just can't be understood, no

Jimmy from Belfast, United KingdomThe opening line says it all...'Suddenly you were gone' no fancy intros, no messing about, no frills of a build up in lyric.....it's wham! just as so often happens in life itself.
Rufus from Wheeling, WvMy favorite from the GUP release.
"suddenly you were gone, from all the lives you left your mark upon. . ."
Derek from Columbus, OhIn one of his books (Roadshow, maybe...?) I think Neil said Robbie was killed in a motorcycle accident.
Trevor from Santa Barbara, CaAn incredible song, with possibly the most epic drum fill and guitar squeal in Rush or rock history.
Jaakko from Pudasjärvi, FinlandThe solo is just... I feel like I would be in a different world every time I hear it.
John from Asheville, NcOne of my favorites from Grace...top 3 anyhow.
Todd from Poynette, WiI have read that Robbie was killed in a car accident. This song is a great tribute to Neil's dear friend who lost his life in his prime.
Ben from Chelsea, MeThis is my favorite song off "Grace Under Pressure." I wonder how he was killed.
Jordan from Port Hope, CanadaBeautiful solo by Alex on this song. Great song both musically and lyrically.
