When You're Gone

I always needed time on my own
I never thought I'd need you there when I cried
And the days feel like years when I'm alone
And the bed where you lie is made up on your side
When you walk away
I count the steps that you take
Do you see how much I need you right now?

CHORUS: When you're gone, the pieces of my heart are missing you
When you're gone
The face I came to know is missing too
When you're gone
The words I need to hear to always get me through the day and make it okay
I miss you

I've never felt this way before
Everything that I do, reminds me of you
And the clothes you left
They lie on the floor
And they smell just like you
I love the things that you do.
When you walk away
I count the steps that you take
Do you see how much I need you right now?
And when you're gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
When you're gone
The face I came to know is missing too
When you're gone
the words I need to hear that always get me through the day and make it okay.
I miss you

We were made for each other, out here forever
I know we were, yeah.
And all I ever wanted was for you to know
Everything I'd do, I'd give my heart and soul
I can hardly breathe
I need to feel you here with me, yeah
And when you're gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you.
And when you're gone
The face I came to know is missing too
When you're gone
The words I need to hear will always get me through the day and make it okay
I miss you











songwriters: Avril Lavigne and Butch Walker

performed by: Avril Lavigne

date released: 2007 by Avril Lavigne

Born to Franco-Ontarian parents in Belleville, Ontario, in 1984, Avril Lavigne developed her musical talent and entered Canada’s New Guard of singer-songwriters, fashion designers and actors. Lavigne’s mother was the first to spot talent in her young daughter and arranged to have two-year-old Avril sing songs with her in the local Catholic church. The family moved to Napanee, Ontario, when Avril was five years old.

In 1998, Lavigne won a competition which enabled her to sing alongside country star, Shania Twain, in her first major concert in Ottawa. In a serendipitous moment, she was discovered by a professional agent while he was performing in a Chapters Bookstore in Kingston, Ontario. With his support, Lavigne released her debut album , “Let’s Go” which contained the sleeper track, “Complicated”. And go she went, right up to number two position in the American hit charts. “Sk8er Boi” and “I’m With You” followed soon after to continue her early success. Lavigne was named Best New Artist at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards. She won four Juno Awards in 2003 and was nominated eight times for Grammy Awards for Best New Artist and Song of the Year for “Complicated”.

Several albums and accolades later, Lavigne established her name in the music genres of pop, rock, and the sub-genre, punk-rock. Matching the style of her musical successes, she opened up a clothing line called Abbey Dawn in 2008 featuring styles for modish teenagers. In the spirit of noblesse oblige, Lavigne has been involved in a number of philanthropic activities: Amnesty International, Make-A-Wish Foundation and several other charities.
