Hit Number 1 in UK charts for 5 weeks and in many other countries afterwards. Easy music to let the rhythm catch you.

Now you're gone
I realised my love for you was strong
And I miss you here now you're gone
I keep waiting here by the phone
With your pictures hanging on the wall

Now you're gone
I realised my love for you was strong
And I miss you here now you're gone
I keep waiting here by the phone
With your pictures hanging on the wall

Is this the way it's meant to be?
Only dreaming that you're missing me
I'm waiting here at home
I'll be crazy now you're gone

There's an empty place in my heart
Without my Anna it will break apart
It won't heal, it never fades away
I'll be thinkin' 'bout you everyday

Ready for take-off

Are you ready?

Now you're gone
I realised my love for you was strong
And I miss you here now you're gone
I keep waiting here by the phone
With your pictures hanging on the wall

Is this the way it's meant to be?
Only dreaming that you're missing me
I'm waiting here at home
I'll be crazy now you're gone

Now you're gone
I realised my love for you was strong
And I miss you here now you're gone
I keep waiting here by the phone
With your pictures hanging on the wall

Is this the way it's meant to be?
Only dreaming that you're missing me
I'm waiting here at home
I'll be crazy now you're gone

There's an empty place in my heart
Without my Anna it will break apart
It won't heal, it never fades away
I'll be thinkin' 'bout you everyday

NOW YOU’RE GONE= as it often happens, the connector THAT is missing (=now that you are gone). You’re gone = you left.

REALIZE= know something through a mental process, get to a conclusion.

I MISS YOU= I feel bad because you’re not with me, I’d like to be with you.

KEEP + -ing= to express that an action continues, that you don’t stop doing it.

BY= a place preposition that means "near, around that place".

PICTURE= it may be a photograph or a painting.

HEART= careful with the pronunciation. We use the long vowel in CAR, and in BrE the R is not pronounced.

WON’T= negative contraction of the verb WILL (it rhymes with GO). This verb is very often used to express volition, similar to the verb WANT. So the negative WON’T often means more or less the same as REFUSE (which is the case in this song)

HEAL= cure, be healthy again

FADE AWAY= slowly disappear

‘BOUT= about. The verb THINK admits two prepositions: "about" and "of": I’m thinking about you = I’m thinking of you (but never "in you")

TAKE OFF= what planes do when they start flying and leave the ground.

THE WAY IT’S MEANT TO BE= how things should be, the expected way to happen, the "correct" way.

This song is quite simple: boy and girl break up (she left him), boy misses her a lot and can't get over it (he can't forget her, he stills loves her). The video gives us a happy ending which is not present in the song:

Boy and girl break up. Both are devastated and friends on either side come to cheer them up. Finally they decide to party with their friends, they go to a disco to have a wild night and maybe find a new love to forget the other one, but they find each other instead and get together again.
