When You’re Gone Away
Lyrics&Music ©Brad Spurgeon

Capo on first fret with chord shapes of:

Em
It’s hard to live by the rules
C D
I set myself long ago
It’s hard to do any planning
When I don’t know where to go
It’s hard to think that anything
Can hit this down and low

G Bm Em
When you’re gone away
When you’re gone away
When you’re gone away

It’s hard to walk the streets at night
And look straight out of my eyes
It’s hard to appreciate daylight
And latch on to my dreams
It’s hard to talk of the future
When all is black it seems

G Bm Em
When you’re gone away
When you’re gone away
When you’re gone away

It’s hard to think that anything
Will ever glow again
It’s hard to agree with the optimist
I used to be back then
It’s hard to look on the bright side
When everything is dark
…hey again…
It’s hard to live the way I did
Seekin’ out that spark

BRIDGE

Then a flash of perception
Hits me from on high
I keep on going straight ahead
And know that before I die
I’ll turn around those deadly
Vice grips that you placed
Upon my head and heart
And somehow you laced
With poison and deception
And every other thing
Under the sun you drained me of
I can hear it now the ring ring

When you’re gone away
When you’re gone away
When you’re gone away
When you’re gone away

about

Brad Spurgeon Paris, France

In 2008, I returned to performing music in public after nearly a 30-year break, after several musician friends encouraged me to try some open mics again. I got addicted, and since then I have played in open mics and open jam sessions in dozens of countries and on all continents except Africa (where I did actually once live and play) and Antarctica. ... more
