Gone

GONE Lyrics © Gayna Rose Madder

 

We’re scratching at the same old wounds

Until they bleed again

The light there was between us

Only flickers now and then

 

The might-have-beens are all now dead and gone;

What is here is here now from now on.

 

An uphill stretch for each of us

As both of us can sense;

Our memories will be different

Of the same old shared events;

 

And though this journey is our journey’s end

I’d like to think I still could be your friend.

 

So you must know, and I must tell you face to face

Though I’d have sooner called or written a letter.

For I must go, I meant to leave long time ago

I was always waiting for you to feel better.

The sense of loss is a sense of hope;

I’d come to love you more but like you less;

So I must go, as late as it’s become

And put my independence to the test.

 

The might-have-beens are all now dead and gone;

What is here is here now from now on.

 

So you must know, and I must tell you face to face

Though I’d have sooner called you or written a letter

For I must go, I meant to leave long time ago

I was always waiting for you to feel better.

I was always waiting for you to feel better.
