Songtekst

Gone
And I let it
Go
And I'll get it

Could I ever speak
Will I ever breach
How can I be enabled
If it's a calling of the heart
You cannot see

Can't read a foreign body language
Who am I to teach (Teach)
You don't know about growing pains
That were neglected in me (Me)
You don't know about warning signs
Ignored and left ath the scene (Scene)
Indeed I'm known to falling standards
Who am I to preach (Preach)

Gone
But you couldn't understand
And I let it
So I lied again
Go
And I wouldn't let you in
And I'll get it
So you cast another stone
You'll find it on your own
If I let it
I better let it go

You will let me down now
Cause you could not lift it
I'll back down when I cannot stand the weight
We'll wake up to breaking hearts, I know it

You will let me down now
Cause you could not lift it
I'll back down when I cannot stand the weight
We'll wake up to breaking hearts, I know it
To breaking hearts, I know it

Could I ever meet
Ever present needs
How can I be relabled
If it's always been indoctrinated in me (Me)
That heathens die and love is blind now
Who am I to see (See)

Gone
But you couldn't understand
And I let it
So I lied again
Go
And I wouldn't let you in
And I'll get it
So you cast another stone
You'll find it on your own
If I let it
I better let it go

You will let me down now
Cause you could not lift it
I'll back down when I cannot stand the weight
We'll wake up to breaking hearts, I know it

You will let me down now
Cause you could not lift it
I'll back down when I cannot stand the weight
We'll wake up to breaking hearts, I know it
To breaking hearts, I know it

All left out, we were left out, irrelevant
All left out, we were left out, irrelevant
All left out, we were left out, irrelevant
All left out, we were left out, irrelevant
All left out, we were left out, irrelevant
All left out, we were left out, irrelevant
All left out, we were left out, irrelevant
All left out, we were left out agin

You will let me down now
Cause you could not lift it
I'll back down when I cannot stand the weight
We'll wake up to breaking hearts, I know it

You will let me down now
Cause you could not lift it
I'll back down when I cannot stand the weight
We'll wake up to breaking hearts, I know it
To breaking hearts, I know it
Now good luck holding it
Together

Gone
And I let it
Go
And I'll get it
Gone
