"Cuz You're Gone" as written by and John Rzeznik....
You whispered in my mouth
And I spit you words right back
How good do you think I'll look
When the words start to break and crack

You beat your head upon your wall
You disconnect yourself from it all
'Cause you know that you're so beautiful and so untouchable
And I want to get in so bad, and I don't know how
No I don't know how

[Chorus]
'Cause you're gone, and you ain't coming back
Yeah you're gone, and you ain't coming back

You held your hand so close
And I just can't push you away
I wished you could be my girl
But you're stuck in your a grown-up world

You beat your head upon your wall
You disconnect yourself from it all
'Cause you know that you're so beautiful and so untouchable
And I want to get in so bad, and I don't know how
No I don't know how

[Chorus]

You beat your head upon your wall
You disconnect yourself from it all
'Cause you know that you're so beautiful and so untouchable
And I want to get in so bad, and I don't know how
And I don't know how

[Chorus]

Yeah you're gone, and I wish you'd come back

    General Comment"beautiful and so untouchable" is probably saying how the girl feels like she has isolated herself and how she feels it's impossible for anyone to break through all her layers and get to know her.

    This song is about a girl that's so far gone inside herself that there's no getting her out of her hell.

    General CommentThis song is about a girl that he used to have....(YEAH YOU'RE GONE, AND I WISH YOU'D COME BACK.) How ever she dosn't know who she really is and she is in her own world trying really hard to find her inner-self.... ( YOU BEAT YOUR HEAD UPON YOUR WALL...meaning trying to figure herself out...( YOU DISCONNECT YOURSELF FROM IT ALL) ( BUT YOU'RE STUCK IN YOUR OWN WORLD...meaning she's in her own little world and isolating herself until she finds her innerself. She is not acting herself ( YOU WHISPERED IN MY MOUTH) ( AND I SPIT THE WORDS RIGHT BACK) She was really close to him ( YOU HELD YOUR HAND SO CLOSE...meaning she really was close to him but not as close as she could have been. if she was closer to him the phrase would have said "You held your Heart so close" But he wasn't able to get that one degree closer to her because he didn't know the inner her because she didn't know the inner her....( AND I WANT TO GET IN SO BAD BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW...meaning he wants to find out who she really is but doesn't know how to do that. She is a beauitful and hard to get/reach woman....( CUZ YOU KNOW THAT YOU'RE SO BEAUTIFUL AND SO UNTOUCHABLE.) He really wants her....( I WISH YOU COULD BE MY GIRL) but he can't reach her. He then realizes that he lost her and can't reach her so he knows he must let her go and let her find out who she really is....( CUZ YOUR GONE AND YOU AIN'T COMMING BACK) a relationship can't function when one person doesn't know ones self because if you don't know who you are how will someone else?

    General Commentcool song. do you think maybe the girl has played with his head too? "you held your hand so close, and i just can't push you away". so yeah, she is beautiful and untouchable because maybe that is how she has created herself. she was a tease, made herself seem isolated, and is frustrated with herself too. now, he (or johnny) has also become frustrated, and given up on her, let her go...but there is still a part of him that wants her back...ok i'm done

    General CommentA Thousand Words lyrics:

    a thousand words, but none were spoken
    guess there's nothing left to say
    another word just got broken
    guess things just turn out that way
    i want you to love me
    i want you to know i'm just like you
    just like you
    a thousand words are spoken
    another dream, another day
    i'm just like you, just like you
    i want you to love me
    i want you to know i'm just like you
    a thousand words just like you
    a thousand words just like you...
