You're Gone

Album: Unbelievable (1998)

  • I said hello I think I'm broken
    And though I was only joking
    It took me by surprise when you agreed.

    I was trying to be clever
    For the life of me I never
    Would have guessed how far the simple truth would lead.

    You knew all my lines
    You knew all my tricks
    You knew how to heal that pain no medicine can fix

    And I bless the day I met you
    And I thank God that he let you
    Lay beside me for a moment that lives on
    And the good news is I'm better for the time we spent together
    And the bad news is you're gone.

    Looking back it's still surprising
    I was sinking you were rising
    And with a look you caught me in mid air.

    Now I know God has his reasons
    But sometimes it's hard to see them
    I lie awake and find that you're not there.

    You found hope in hopeless
    You made crazy sane
    You became the missing link that helped me break my chains.

    And I bless the day I met you
    And I thank God that he let you
    Lay beside me for a moment that lives on
    And the good news is I'm better for the time we spent together
    And the bad news is you're gone.
    Umm umm
    Ohh ohh you're gone
    Ohhh you're gone! Writer/s: JON VEZNER, PAUL H WILLIAMS
