Long Gone
Long Gone
©March 2004

You waltzed in to the room
And our eyes met
I was overcome in ways I can?t explain
It was like I took a breath
And couldn?t release it
Until your eyes shined their light on mine again.

You brushed by me in the crowd
Exchanging glances
Soon a careless touch led to a careless kiss.
And I fell so unprotected and completely
I?d known love before but never love like this.

I can?t remember now how I?d done you wrong
Or if maybe somehow you?d done wrong to me.
The only thing I really know
is one day I let you go
And now you?re about as gone as gone can be.

Yeah you?re gone. Long gone.
Gone like a kiss cast on the wind
You?re not coming back again.
And I?m left alone to carry on.
Nothing more to say.
You?re just gone. Long Gone.

When people talk of hearts they call it breaking.
I?m here to say that what they say is true.
I had no words to make you stay
And from then until this day.
I?ve had a hole left in my heart shaped just like you.

So I raise up a glass and toast your picture
The one you gave me on the day we met.
Sometimes I drink just to remember
But tonite I?m drinking to forget.
Forget that you?re gone. Long gone.
Gone like a kiss cast on the wind
You?re not coming back again.
And I?m alone left to carry on.
Nothing I can do
You?re just gone. Long gone.
Short Song Description:
Written for anyone who fell in love and somehow let it slip away. The reasons don't matter at all, it's the realization that sometimes people get lost and lose their way and they just wake up one day and say "What did I do?" But sometimes there are no sec
