He Wasn't, Pt. 1 album at
Avril Lavigne's, "Slipped Away"
The Lyrics:
I didn't get around to kiss you
Goodbye on the hand
I wish that I could see you again
I know that I can't
I hope you can hear me
Cause I remember it clearly
The day you slipped away
Was the day I found it
won't be the same
The track "Slipped Away" is about the death of Avril Lavigne's grandfather. But like "When You're Gone", the song is predominantly in G major. Some may find the arrangements a bit insincere.

Avril Lavigne's, "When You're Gone"
The Lyrics:
When you're gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
When you're gone
The face I came to know is missing too
And when you're gone
The words I need to hear
To always get me through the day
And make it okay
I miss you
The video of the song, you should check it out. When you are talking about missing someone you love, yet setting a song in G-major? Too optimistic and hopeful.
