The Day You Went Away: The Best of M2M is a greatest hits compilation album by Norwegian teen-pop duo M2M. It was released in 2003 after M2M disbanded in 2002.

The compilation includes all of their singles from their two studio albums Shades of Purple and The Big Room, acoustic versions of some other songs and popular album tracks. It also contains a Mandarin Chinese version of their song “Pretty Boy” and a Spanish version of “Everything You Do”.

“Everything” is also shortened without the faded out ending and “Everything You Do” was completely re-recorded with new vocals. It also has the previously unreleased songs, “Not to Me” and “Is You”.

[Intro]
Am G F E
Am G F E
          Am
Well I wonder
         G
could it be
           F
When I was dreaming 'bout you baby
         E
You were dreaming of me
           Am
Call me crazy,
          G
call me blind
            F
To still be suffering is stupid
      E
after all of this time
      C
Did I lose my love
   G
to someone better
Am            Em
 And does she love you
       F
like I do
     Am
I do, you know I
Em            G
really really do
[Chorus]
     C
Well hei..
                  Am
So much I need to say
                      F
Been lonely since the day
                  C
The day you went away
           C
So sad but true
                    Am
For me there's only you
                      F
Been crying since the day
                  Am
The day you went away
[Intro]
Am G F E
       Am
I remember
           G
date and time
          F
September twenty second
              E
Sunday twenty five after nine
           Am
In the doorway
            G
with your case
          F
No longer shouting at each other
           E
There were tears on our faces
            C
And we were letting go of
G
something special
Am
 Something we'll
Em          F
never have again
      Am
I know, I guess I
Em            G
really really know
[Chorus]
     C
Well hei..
                  Am
So much I need to say
                      F
Been lonely since the day
                  C
The day you went away
           C
So sad but true
                    Am
For me there's only you
                      F
Been crying since the day
                  Am
The day you went away
                  F
The day you went away
                  E
The day you went away
[Interlude]

     C
Well hei..
                  Am
So much I need to say

So sad but true
                    Am
For me there's only you
                      F
Been crying since the day
                  Am
The day you went away
          C
Why do we never know
                         Am
what we've got 'til it's gone
                  F
How could I carry on
                  C
The day you went away
                C
Cause I've been missing you
                  Am
so much I have to say
                      F
Been crying since the day
                  Am
The day you went away
                  F
The day you went away
                  E
The day you went away..
