  • Halfway gone, halfway gone

    You were always hard to hold
    So letting go ain't easy
    I'm hanging on but growing cold
    While my mind is leaving

    Talk, talk is cheap
    Give me a word you can keep
    'Cause I'm halfway gone and I'm on my way
    And I'm feeling, feelin' feelin' this way
    'Cause I'm halfway in but don't take too long
    'Cause I'm halfway gone, I'm halfway gone
    You got one foot out the door
    And choking on the other
    Always think there's something more
    Its just around the corner

    Talk, talk is cheap
    Give me a word you can keep
    'Cause I'm halfway gone and I'm on way
    And I'm feeling, feelin' feelin' this way
    'Cause you're halfway in but don't take too long
    'Cause I'm halfway gone, I'm halfway gone

    If you want me out, then I'm on my way
    And I'm feelin', feelin' feelin' this way
    'Cause you're halfway in, but don't take too long
    'Cause I'm halfway gone, I'm halfway gone (oh oh)
    I'm halfway gone, I'm halfway gone (oh oh)
    Now I'm halfway gone, I'm halfway gone
    Don't take too long, don't take too long
    'Cause I'm on my way
    If you take too long
    'Cause I'm halfway gone and I'm on way
    And I'm feeling, feelin' I'm feelin' this way
    'Cause you're halfway in but don't take too long
    'Cause I'm halfway gone, I'm halfway gone

    If you want me out, then I'm on my way
    And I'm feelin', feelin' feelin' this way
    'Cause you're halfway in, but don't take too long
    'Cause I'm halfway gone, I'm halfway gone (oh oh)
    'Cause I'm halfway gone, and I'm halfway gone (oh oh)
    'Cause I'm halfway gone, yeah I'm halfway gone Writer/s: JACOB KASHER HINDLIN, JASON WADE, JUDE COLE, KEVIN RUDOLF

  • AnonymousI think the girl is done with the BS and she is fed up with talk being cheap , she is halfway gone , it’s now or never . If he wants to save the relationship he best start to get things right , because a good woman she ain’t coming back , better check in the right stage , or it will be too late to love her .
  • Nancy from Baltimore, MdIt's a fun song to listen to.
  • Tyler from Augusta, KsVery good song. It always seems to make me think (even with the lyrics) that the story behind the song is that someones halfway gone as in about ready for a breakup.
