We used to be so close
Yet so distant towards each other
I tend to see you often
But you turn the other way

We were friends for so long
Yet I didn't realize it yet
That when we drifted apart
I'd neglect to understand

Now the damage is done
And the mist is clearing up
When I approach you
You seem as though you've seen a ghost
I try to say a word
But you're gone by that point

Why are you away from me?
Is it something that I said?
Why are you away from me?
You act as if I'm dead
Yet at least the dead gets respect
As I am left to look at my neglect

I reminisce about old times
They seem so fair and well
You had those pigtails
And that silly grin

Now your hair is down
And that smile has faded away
You still look the same
But on the outside not the in

Now the damage is done
And the mist is clearing up
When I approach you
You seem as though you've seen a ghost
I try to say a word
But you're gone by that point

Why are you away from me?
Is it something that I said?
Why are you away from me?
You act as if I'm dead
Yet at least the dead gets respect
As I am left to look at my neglect

Why Are You Away From Me? Lyrics
