The One You Loved Is Gone

Album: Living The Dream (2018)
  • And I wonder even now, whatever came of you
    And I wonder even now, where you are
    Even though I'm much too proud to ever say it
    Your ghost still comes around to haunt my heart

    If only time
    Could somehow turn the page
    If only I
    Hadn't walked away

    I'm a desperate man who longs to stop the aching
    I'm a desperate man who longs to find someone
    Who can show me there is joy left for the taking
    Who can show me there's a song left to be sung

    If only time
    Could somehow turn the page
    If only I
    Hadn't walked away

    The lonely embrace of days gone by
    So better the taste where love survives
    But the one you loved is gone

    Now I know, now I know
    We can't replace what we let go
    And still I hope, still I hope
    That time will ease the pain
    Of losing something that was pure and beautiful

    And I wonder even now, whatever came of you
    And I wonder even now, where you are

    The lonely embrace of days gone by
    So better the taste where love survives
    But the one you loved is gone

    La la la la la la la la la la la la
    If only time could turn the page
    La la la la la la la la la la la la
    And take me back to yesterday
    La la la la la la la la la la la la
    Oh, but things would always change
    La la la la la la la la la la la la
    Oh oh Writer/s: Myles Richard Kennedy, Saul Hudson

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
