After You've Gone Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

You're just a mile away
One thousand five tiny steps from here
But if I brought you near
Would you believe when I say

It seems like yesterday
That I could reach out and touch your face
But as I fall from grace
Into whose arms can I lay

It's always much too late
We get the signs
We can't communicate
Or turn back time

So what will be now, do you feel somehow
Not so together and not quite as strong
Now I believe
Alone doesn't have to mean lonely, after you've gone

I need a healing wind
To cool the flame burning in my sight
It must accelerate
For two wrongs they don't make a right

And all these solitaires
Lone victories
Wars fought in isolation
With none to please

So what will be now, do you feel somehow
Not so together and not quite as strong
Now I believe
Alone doesn't have to mean lonely, after you've gone

The future's still uncertain
The past is done

So what will be now, do you feel somehow
Not so together and not quite as strong
Now I believe
Alone doesn't have to mean lonely, after you've gone

Now I believe
Alone doesn't have to mean lonely, after you've gone

Now I believe
Alone doesn't have to mean lonely, after you've gone
