  • Late afternoon, dreaming hotel
    We just had the quarrel, that sent you away
    I was looking for you, are you gone, gone?

    Called you on the phone, another dimension
    Well, you never returned, oh you know what I mean
    I went looking for you, are you gone, gone?

    Down by the ocean, it was so dismal
    Women all standing with shock on their faces
    Sad description, oh I was looking for you

    Everyone was singing, girl is washed up
    On Redondo beach and everyone is so sad
    I was looking for you, are you gone, gone?

    Pretty little girl, everyone cried
    She was the victim, of sweet suicide
    I went looking for you, are you gone, gone?

    Down by the ocean it was so dismal
    Women all standing with shock on their faces
    Sad description, oh I was just looking for you

    Desk clerk told me, girl was washed up
    Was small, an angel with apple blonde hair, now
    I went looking for you, are you gone, gone?

    Picked up my key, didn't reply
    Went to my room, started to cry
    You were small, an angel, are you gone, gone?

    Down by the ocean it was so dismal
    I was just standing with shock on my face
    The hearse pulled away and the girl that had died, it was you

    You'll never return into my arms 'cause you were gone, gone
    Never return into my arms 'cause you were gone, gone
    Gone, gone
    Gone, gone
