Gone with the Wind

Album: Identified (2008)
  • I used to think
    Being like you
    Was the key to having everything every dream come true
    I used to think
    Following the crowd
    Was the only thing that I could do until I found out

    I'm OK (dig it)
    Sometimes you gotta do your own thing (dig it)
    Every winter turns to spring (dig it)
    And everybodys got there own wings
    The little girl you knew
    The one that never stood up to you
    Who kept her silence too long
    Well shes gone with the wind
    And now I'm standin' my ground
    And who I am and for that I'm proud
    And the girl that you knew
    Well she's gone with the wind

    [Chorus]
    She's gone gone (she's gone she's gone)
    She's gone gone (she's gone she's gone)
    She's gone gone (she's gone she's gone)
    Yeah she's gone with the wind

    I'm speakin' up
    My conscience is clear
    And I don't care what anybody thinks I've released my fear
    And I don't have to be
    What you want me to be
    Cause every time I try to fit it it feels like I'm in a prison

    I'm OK (dig it)
    Sometimes you gotta do your own thing (dig it)
    Every winter turns to spring (dig it)
    And everybodys got there own wings
    The little girl you knew
    The one that never stood up to you
    Who kept her silence too long
    Well shes gone with the wind
    And now I'm standin' my ground
    And who I am and for that I'm proud
    And the girl that I was
    Well she's gone with the wind

    [Chorus]

    One look in my eyes
    And you will see I'm different
    I'm findin' myself everyday and I'm on the way
    I have changed
    The little girl you knew
    The one that never stood up to you
    Who kept her silence too long
    Well shes gone with the wind
    And now I'm standin' my ground
    And who I am and for that I'm proud
    And the girl that you knew
    Well she's gone with the wind
