Butterfly Lady

Song for Michael

Gone Away


Gone Away

Once there was youth, there was beauty

There was dancing in the wind

Once there was joy, there was laughter

And there was love, so much love


That has all gone away

It's been taken, it's been stolen

Gone away, all gone away

All the beauty has been broken


Once there was playing in the sun

There was sharing and embracing

Once there was giving, there was feeling

And there was love, so much love


That has all gone away

It's been taken, it's been stolen

Gone away, all gone away

All the beauty has been broken


Once there was hope and a future

There were dreams of things to come

Once there was light beyond the shadow

And there was love, so much love


That has all gone away

It's been taken, it's been stolen

Gone away, all gone away

All the beauty has been broken

Gone away, all gone away

All the beauty has been broken

All the beauty has been broken

All the beauty has been broken

All the beauty has been broken
