En Ausencia de Ti

"In assenza di te" (English: In absence of you) is a pop song by Italian singer Laura Pausini off her fourth album, La mia risposta. "En ausencia de ti" is its Spanish-language adaptation. The song was released in France in June 2003. The English version, "It's not Goodbye" originated all of the other versions, and was released in late 2003 as a single from the album From the Inside.

It remains as one of Pausini's hits until today. It also helped to promote the album with the other hit-single "Un'emergenza d'amore". All of the three versions were released as singles, and only the Spanish and Italian ones had videoclips recorded.

Both Spanish and Italian versions were included in Pausini's greatest hits album, E ritorno da te.

Before it was released as a single, the song got really known and famous in Brazil, where it was used as a piece for the soundtrack to the telenovela Pecado Capital. Later, Pausini released a special version of the single just in that country (see below).
