Gia wrote this song about a young girl who was killed in a tragic car accident. She wrote it for the victim's little sister in reflection of the process of moving on from such a tragedy.


While you were gone, we cleaned up your room. We thought you'd be home soon.
While you were gone, a bird landed on my chest and sang me a tune.
While you were gone, the sky was maroon like flowers in bloom, yeah.
While you were gone, the stars sang a song and the ocean danced on and on.

While you were gone, dust settled in the soles of your shoes.
While you were gone, time stood still like we had no free will.
While you were gone, your spirit came to greet me in my dreams.
While you were gone, our little world unraveled at the seams.

Only this moment, only now.

Now that you're gone, the wind will whisper secrets in my ear.
Now that you're gone, we keep your room just like you left it here.
Now that you're gone, not one thing will bring back that sweet smile.
Now that you're gone, we'll let the stars sing to us for awhile.

Only this moment, only now.
