GONE!

young, we were so young, wasting our lives away
cuts on your wrist, let me knew you would fade
ME, TOO GOOD FOR YOU, YOU PLAYED IT THROUGH
SO YOU WOULDNT HURT ME
NOW WITH ONE DOWN , YOU TURN YOUR LIFE AROUND
frown down on me, once you see, you were pushing me
SO CLOSE TO PULL YOU INTO SHORE
BEFORE YOU DROWN
no more life in me cuz i spent it on you so you wouldn't be down
i loved you (2x)
now one little call takes you from me!!
GONE!!

(chorus)
sink through my hands like quicksand (I can't see you)
used and abused all for you (i can't save you)
NOW YOU'RE GONE AND I'M alooone....AGAIN
(end of chorus)

(bridge 1)
IN THE LIGHT OF DAY MY EYES TURN TO GRAY AS YOU GO AWAY WON'T YOU GO AWAY? I TRIED SO HARD, I HELD YOU'RE HAND TIGHT NOW I ALONE SUFFERING, THIS DOESN'T SEEM RIGHT!

i still smell your skin you're still near
i wish that this scent and pain was gone from here
now all those warm memories
are coming back to HAUNT ME

(chorus)

(verse 2)
Far, we're so far apart, losing our connections
Love, in your heart, lets me know you forgot me
HIM, TREATING YOU LIKE DIRT, BUT STILL YOU DON'T CARE IF YOU GET HURT
lose respect in me once you see the anger in me
SO CLOSE ILL PUSH YOU BACK
JUST SO YOU FADE AWAY
no more life in me cuz i spent it all on you
so you wouldnt be down
you hated me! (2x)
Now one person takes you away from me

one little call takes you from me
one little person takes you from me
one little place takes you from me
NOW ONE PERSON DENIES ME!!
MISSOURI! F*CK MISSOURI!

GONE!!

now i see who you are
now i see what you are
now i see how you are

MISSOURI! F*CK MISSOURI!

(chorus)

one year of frustration
one year of starvation
one year of salvation
TOO LONG FOR HIBERNATION

BACK! YOU FORGOT ME ITS BEEN TOO LONG
GONE!! YOU LEFT ME TO TAKE A NEW ROAD

but what about me? (what about us?)

one little call takes you from me
one little person takes you from me
one little place takes you from me
NOW ONE PERSON DENIES ME
I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY NOW THAT THE PAIN'S INSIDE ME
I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY AS YOU WALK ALL OVER ME
(now he's inside you)
GONE!!!

(chorus)

missouri (one year of frustration0
missouri (one year of starvation)
missouri (one year of salvation)
missouri (TOO LONG FOR HIBERNATION)

(chorus)

GONE!!!

    General Comment*blank stare*

    i can only imagine what this is about...sounds like a good relationship gone bad or something, sounds like someone has been betrayed once too many times or something, good lord i NEED to hear these guys hey Grin what these guys sound like u know?

    i suggest that if this band ever goes on a US tour, to never tour in missouri if u catch my drift, im stupid bye

    General Commentwell i guess if you understand the background of the song than it makes sense why "fuck missouri" is said a lot and why the song is called missouri in the first place, i dunno some people understand some dont have a clue others like the song for what it is...but i highly doubt that if they actually do this song that they will put it on a cd or something becuz a lot of people wont understand it and it might give the band a bad name for the lyrics themselves, if that makes any sense...still this remains as one ot the deepest songs that the singer has written, and possibly the most controversial if you know the story behind it and such...
