Gone 03:06
She told me that some time apart Might be the best thing for our hearts When it was left to stupid me Sad but reluctantly agreed Now she’s Gone Before I even said good-bye She’s walking away from me Is that how it goes? So this is the show we put on Gone Before I blink she’s out of sight A speck of a memory Is that how it goes? So this is the end of our song Watching the day tick slowly by After another sleepless night She has a life and it goes on Not that I’d know She hasn’t even called She’s Gone Before I even said good-bye She’s walking away from me Is that how it goes? So this is the show we put on Gone Before I blink she’s out of sight I never said that love was perfect But tell me one thing that is I just can’t believe that our romance Is not even worth a second chance Gone Before I even said good-bye She’s walking away from me So that how it goes? And this is the show we put on Yeah that’s how it goes And this is the end of our song She’s gone

I know you’re stuck in a place Where colors are only shades of gray One day you’ll open a door And suddenly you’ll see Blue skies above And Mountains below And you’ll fly just like a dove Your troubles below Blue skies above Where ever you go I know it’s all too familiar We’ve been through it all before, my love We’ll see it through to the end And waiting for us are Blue skies above And Mountains below And you’ll fly just like a dove Your troubles below Blue skies above Where ever you go A little moving your feet And you’re across the floor A little turn of the key And you unlock the door A little push from me And you’re out on the porch Into the sunshine Blue skies above And Mountains below And you’ll fly just like a dove Your troubles below Blue skies above Where ever you go

Turn out the light and come to bed Try to rest your weary head We’ll count the blessings of the day And I’ll be right here when you wake Tomorrow we’re gonna try again On broken dreams we need to mend I was there when the road began And I’ll be here until it ends Everything that you run from finds you And you know you can’t just let it be When you feel like there’s no one beside you Look over and you will see me Tomorrow we’re gonna start again We’ve seen it all and we will again. I was there when the road began And I’ll be here until it ends

Looking for what I can’t find Nothing I do is gonna change your mind Stuck between the truth and lies Nothing I say tells you what is right But it’s gonna be fine I can feel the morning sunshine coming Yeah it’s gonna be fine I can feel the morning sunshine coming Tears that make my heart bleed Nothing I do tells me what you need I lay beside you in the night Feeling you take my hand and hold it tight But it’s gonna be fine I can feel the morning sunshine coming Yeah it’s gonna be fine I can feel the morning sunshine coming And sunshine breaks the chill and warms the heart Like fire makes reflections on the hearth And I’ll be right beside you through the day Until we face the night again And it’s gonna be fine I can feel the morning sunshine coming Yeah it’s gonna be fine I can feel the morning sunshine coming

The kids are playing in the street A game of hide and seek It’s getting dark outside They look but they can’t find Maybe you’re lost Finding yourself But you can’t change who you are You say what you want You take it too far When you’re wishing on a dark star He’s in the mist of dawn Walking the black top alone Under the shade of a lie That everything’s just fine Maybe you’re lost Finding yourself But you can’t change who you are You say what you want You take it too far When you’re wishing on a dark star All those years reaching for everything I thought that wanted And when I’ve taken hold I still find myself Peculiarly haunted The summer days grow long They wonder if you’re home Play under warm street lights Run from the clutches of night Maybe you’re lost Finding yourself But you can’t change who you are You say what you want You take it too far When you’re wishing on a dark star

Now that night has fallen Golden horizons are calling us Feel the morning sunshine Feel the morning sunshine My wildest dreams came true When I woke up with you My wildest dreams came true When I woke up with you I used to pass every night alone Pull up the blankets of dark and cold Feel the morning sunshine Feel the morning sunshine My wildest dreams came true When I woke up with you My wildest dreams came true When I woke up with you

Eleven long hours in a minivan Seven wild monkeys in a sardine can AC went out fifty miles back Flat tire, not a soul helping me unpack Found the spare. Lotta good it does without the jack I need a vacation From my vacation I need a vacation From my vacation Rise and shine on the morning of day two Now the kids are coming down with the stomach flu And little Jonny wet the bed again And uncle Harry drank up all the gin Am I really paying money for this? I need a vacation From my vacation I need a vacation From my vacation Maybe I’ll thumb a ride back home What I’d give to be sitting in the house alone I need a vacation From my vacation I need a vacation From my vacation

A little rain falls on your head A sunny day has up and fled But you look so lovely in this light A little rain falls on your head We’re gonna make the best of it I wanna stay right by your side All the people run for cover All we can do is curse the sky Let’s walk in the rain together Everyone knows the reason why A little rain falls on your head A sunny day has up and fled But you look so lovely in this light A little rain falls on your head We’re gonna make the best of it I wanna stay right by your side Summer clouds won’t last forever Soon they break open clear blue sky Lets walk in the rain together Everyone knows the reason why A little rain falls on your head A sunny day has up and fled But you look so lovely in this light A little rain falls on your head We’re gonna make the best of it I wanna stay right by your side And you look so lovely in this light Oh you look so lovely in this light

Been lyin’ Lord knows you’ve been tryin’ To put the past behind you But the truth leaves a mark You can see in the dark And everyone knows Everyone knows You’ve got nowhere to go tonight And you need a place To hide your face And jump back from the light Been hurtin’ Lord knows you’ve been searchin’ You can fake it for a while But a smile can’t hide What you feel inside And everyone knows Everyone knows You’ve got nowhere to go tonight And you need a place To hide your face And jump back from the light All I tried to say is I’m here for you Come on over have a beer or two You don’t have to hide forever We can laugh and cry together Everyone knows Everyone knows You’ve got nowhere to go tonight And you need a place To hide your face

City lights and the stars As walk in from my car Smiling faces at the bar These are the memories I’ve forgotten now Killing time on west end Over book and record bins One more hour ’til load in These are the memories I’ve forgotten Lately it seems I think of them often Born to relive it but I’ve forgotten how Highs and lows There’s no line at the door Twenty faces maybe more Hoping we were made to soar These are the memories I’ve forgotten now Angel watches from the wall Staring down our curtain call A thousand nights she’s seen it all These are the memories I’ve forgotten Lately it seems I think of them often Born to relive it but I’ve forgotten how Highs and lows City lights and the stars Amble across the gravel lots Grinning faces in the dark These are the memories I’ve forgotten now Born to relive it but I’ve forgotten how Born to relive it but I’ve forgotten how

Before the tears that flow are even dry Crawling back to you Before the offer she already buys Crawling back to you Autumn leaves are gonna fall Summer dies in Winter Give it time she’s sure to call Crawling back to you Crawling back to you Crawling back to you You let her down again It only builds her resolve To try and make amends She’s just a family friend A puzzle I can’t solve Autumn leaves are gonna fall Summer dies in Winter Give it time she’s sure to call Crawling back to you Crawling back to you Crawling back to you

Go on and tear up my letter If that will make it all better Pretend that this is your moment We’ll never mind that you stole it Let the oceans rise Let the masses cry Let the music die Let the blue bird fly You hide ‘em under your wing now Those little forgotten things now Pretending nothing is wrong You singing the same old song Let the oceans rise Let the masses cry Let the music die Let the blue bird fly Go on and tear up my letter If that will make it all better Pretending nothing is wrong You singing the same old song Let the oceans rise Let the masses cry Let the music die Let the blue bird fly
