Gone
by U2

  • You gotta feel so guilty
    Got so much for so little
    Then you find that feeling just won't go away
    You're holding on to every little thing so tightly
    Till there's nothing left for you anyway
    Goodbye
    You can keep this suit of lights
    I'll be up with the sun
    I'm not coming down
    I'm not coming down, oh
    I'm not coming down

    You wanted to get somewhere so badly
    You had to lose yourself along the way
    You change a name but that's okay
    It's necessary
    And what you leave behind
    You don't miss anyway

    Goodbye
    You can keep this suit of lights
    I'll be up with the sun
    I'm not coming down
    I'm not coming down, oh
    I'm not coming down

    'Cause I'm already gone
    Felt that way all along
    Closer to you every day
    I didn't want it that much anyway

    You're taking steps that make you feel dizzy
    Then you get to like the way it feels
    You hurt yourself you hurt your lover
    Then you discover
    What you thought was freedom is just greed

    Goodbye
    It's emotional
    Goodnight
    I'll be up with the sun
    Are you still holding on
    I'm not coming down, oh
    I'm not coming down, oh
    I'm not coming downWriter/s: KHARI CAIN, LADONNIS CRUMP, JESSE JAMES, KEITH MILLER, BRIAN WILLIAM PARKER, DAVID STOKES, BRIAN WICKER

  • Grant from Annandale, VaOne of the best off Pop, and a fantastic live song, including on the Elevation tour, even though it's well-known they butchered the version on the DVD.
  • John from Madison, WiIt probably didn't get nearly the buzz of some of their other hits becuase the Pop Album was such a bust. But you are correct Stephan, this song is terribly underrated and definitely the best the Pop Album has to offer.
  • Stephan from St Georges, CanadaUnder rated song. In my top five of U2 songs. This song is powerfull and is the best of the Pop album.
