Since You’ve Been Away Lyrics Video Story

I don’t know if you noticed, but a couple of songs ago – right before the descent into self induced mind altering psychedelic self medication, there was a You’ve Been Away Lyrics Video post. Not to be confused with this one: the Since You’ve Been Away Lyrics Video story. The first is the calm before the storm. This one is the aftermath.

In real world life story behind this song, I found myself working and living in a small town in Connecticut. Time had passed. Enough time to forget? No. Enough to heal? A little.

Since you’ve been away I have mended my heart
Since you’ve been away I have made a new start
I’ve grown a little stronger – can’t wait for you much longer

And so it was. I’d healed a little. Gotten over the loss a little. I made a new start, and I couldn’t wait around much longer. I needed to get laid, you know? Simple base human needs.

I need love and deep inside I’m yearning for it
The happiness I’ve waited for just isn’t here

It was so true. I had been waiting for what seemed like an eternity for her to come back. I was in Connecticut, where she was – only about a 30 minute drive away. When I came back I tried to see her but she wouldn’t. Her family was a wall. I visited one of her best friends and made sure she told her I was back from California. But she never called me, and wouldn’t take my calls, and eventually I gave up. I turned my attention to finding a partner, someone I could share some good times with and party with.

And though I could not love you
I could prove that if I had you
Then things would be much better
Together we’d brave the stormy weather

Now the goal became what usually becomes the goal in cases where someone fucks up royally and has to live it down: prove something. I knew that I had to prove to myself that I could do a better job of holding together a relationship, and if I could prove it with someone else, then I’d be proving to her that things would be much better if she would only come back to me.

So I’ve taken on a woman and the reason should be understood
that since you’ve been away I’ve had to prove that I could do you good since you’ve been away

I was out to prove something, and I was using another human being to do it. Nice. I didn’t see it that way at the time. I was being a good boyfriend. A good partner. Someone that didn’t cheat. Someone that didn’t make his lover feel less than the prime focus of my world. I could do that with somebody else, but I will always wait till we meet again someday kinda sorta indicates that I was not really “with” who I was with, you know?

Since you’ve been away the taste of love aint so sweet
Since you’ve been away my desire has been weak
You know I miss the love that we had for one another

What can I say? Sex with Sarah was like dying and going to heaven and meeting God. It was during my time with her that I developed the theory that the reason sex is so taboo in western culture was that it brought you so close to God – the creator – that the religious powers that be did not believe it was in their best interest to encourage this avenue of knowing God lest people just stay home and fuck all the time and never give money to the church or do anything productive. So making sex taboo was very important, and wrapping the whole beautiful soulful spiritual act in a self immolating sense of guilt and depravity was the prime motivator for religion to create a campaign of damning all humans to feel massive guilt for our own bodies and natural desires. But I digress. Nothing was like her. No one tasted like her. No one could elicit the desire in me that she elicited.

I give love but deep inside I’m giving it to you
You’ll never know how much my love for you has grown
since you’ve been away

And, there you have it. Every time I gave love, made love, treated my woman with love, I was really giving it to her. And a weird, twisted, way, my love for her grew stronger and stronger all the time. I was never going to be rid of her.

I would always wait till we meet again some day.


Since You’ve Been Away (Lyrics)
by Jerry Boutot

Since you’ve been away I have mended my heart
Since you’ve been away I have made a new start
I’ve grown a little stronger – can’t wait for you much longer

I need love and deep inside I’m yearning for it
The happiness I’ve waited for just isn’t here

And though I could not love you
I could prove that if I had you
Then things would be much better
Together we’d brave the stormy weather

So I’ve taken on a woman and the reason should be understood that
Since you’ve been away I’ve had to prove that I could do you good

Since you’ve been away
Since you’ve been away
I’ve been praying that you would come back
Into my life again some day
Since you’ve been away
I will always wait
till we meet again some day

Since you’ve been away the taste of love ain’t so sweet
Since you’ve been away my desire has been weak
You know I miss the love that we had for one another

I give love but deep inside I’m giving it to you
You’ll never know how much my love for you has grown

Since you’ve been away
Since you’ve been away
I’ve been praying that you would come back
Into my life again some day
Since you’ve been away
I will always wait
till we meet again some day
