Every Time You Go Away

Lyrics By: Daryl Hall
Music By: Daryl Hall

Baby if we can't solve any problems
Why do we lose so many tears
Whoa oh so you go again
When the leading man appears
Always the same theme
Can't you see we've got everything going on and on and on
And everytime you go away
You take a piece of me with you
(Oooh)
And everytime you go away
You take a piece of me with you

You go on and go free
Maybe you're too close to see
I can feel your body move
But it doesn't mean that much to me
I can't go on singing the same theme
'Cause you can't see we've got everything
Baby, even though you know that
Everytime you go away
You take a piece of me with you
You just don't care girl
Everytime you go away
You take a piece of me with you
'Cause you can't see we've got everything
Baby, even though you know that
Everytime you go away (everytime you go away ooh)
(Everytime you go away)
Why you have to go away right now
(Everytime you go away)
Ooh ooh
(Everytime you go away)
Go on and go away girl
(Everytime you go away)
I don't understand why you gotta go girl
(Everytime you go away)
Go on and go free even though you mean so much to me
(Everytime you go away)
I don't understand baby
(Everytime you go away)
Oh baby baby everytime you go
(Everytime you go away)
You don't know you don't know 'cause you never understand girl
(Everytime you go away)
Why you have to go away right now
(Everytime you go away)
Everytime you go girl
(Everytime you go away)
Go on go on and go free yeah
Baby even though you mean so much to me
(Everytime you go away)
I'll never understand why you gotta go girl
(Everytime you go away)
Oooh I don't understand girl
(Everytime you go away)
I don't know go I don't know go I don't know go I don't know go I
don't know go girl
(Everytime you go away)
Go girl go girl you gotta go girl if you wanna babe
(Everytime you go away)
Baby baby baby baby yeah

This was sung by Hall and Oates with the Dead at the Rainforest Benefit on 24 September 1988
