"Gone" Lyrics [edit]
by Switchfoot | from the album The Beautiful Letdown
 

She told him she'd rather fix her make-up
Than try to fix what's going on
But the problem keeps on calling
Even with the cell-phone gone

She told him that she believes in living,
Bigger than she's living now
But her world keeps spinning backwards and upside-down

Don't say so-long, you're not that far gone
Don't spend today away, 'cause today will soon be

Gone, like yesterday is gone,
Like history is gone,
Just try and prove me wrong, and pretend like you're immortal.

She said, He said, live like no tomorrow;
Every day we borrow brings us
One step closer to the edge. Infinity.
Where's your treasure, where's your hope,
If you get the world, and lose your soul?
She pretends like she pretends like she's immortal,

Don't say so-long, and throw yourself wrong
This could be your big chance to make-up
Today will soon be

Gone, like yesterday is gone
Like history is gone,
The world keeps spinning on
You're going, going, gone,
Like summer break is gone,
Like Saturday is gone,
Just try and prove me wrong and pretend like you're immortal

We are not infinite
We are not permanent
Nothing is immediate
And we pretend like we're immortal
We are so confident in our accomplishments
Look at our decadence

Gone, like Frank Sinatra,
Like Elvis and his mom
Like Al Pacino's cash,
Nothing lasts in this life
My high school dreams are gone
My childhood sweets are gone
Life is a day that doesn't last for long

Life is more than money
Time was never money
Time was never cash
Life is still more than girls
Life is more than hundred-dollar bills and roto-tom fills
Life is more than fame and rock and roll and thrills
All the riches of the kings end up in wills
We've got information in the information age,
But do we know what life is
Outside of our convenient Lexus cages?

She said, He said live like no tomorrow,
Every moment that we borrow brings us closer
To a God who's never been short of cash
Hey Bono, I'm glad you asked,
Life is still worth living, Life is more that we are
