I wanted you to be with me
For so long I don't even know by now
But now that I've given up on you
Defiantly you see me

Walking away I see the pain
You put me through
Lost in your game to change the same
Forever gone, forever you

There's something very wrong about this
I think you knew all along somehow
You'll only take me to change my mind
Lonely, broken, and defeated

So far away I see the truth
I see through you
Now that I know the way you play
I don't want to

Walking away I see the pain
You put me through
Lost in your game to change the same
Forever gone, forever you

    General CommentThis song is really good. I don't really know what it means, but it makes me want to cry. Sort of reminds me of Everybody's Fool....

    General CommentForever gone, forever you, is about the book "the child called it" the first line of the song, "i wanted you to be with me." was when the child begged for his mom back instead of the achloholic woman torchering him. and the other line "Walking away I see the pain You put me through Lost in your game to change the same Forever gone, forever you" is when he is finally rescued by child support and he looks back on all the pain his mother put him through. and how his mothers abuse were called games. the acholohal killed his mother. "forever gone, Forever you."
    This song is basically about acolohal and drug abuse/addiction.
    Rate if you agree ;)

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who loved a guy that manipulated her to no ends, and didnt really want anything to do with her. Now she's moving on, and he's trying to get with her, and she's nu uh. Hindsight is always 20/20, and looking back, she sees how he manipulated her. And she's just not having it. Awesome song. I can totally relate.

    General CommentI heard somewhere that this song (along with Taking Over Me) is about John's addiction to Eggo waffles. There's my meaning right there! (j/k)
    I think this song is about becoming so in love with someone that a person doesn't even know who they are. All the person knows is that the other person should belong to them. But then the person takes a step back and realizes that the love was misleading.
    I agree with Everybody's Fool, too. :-)

    General CommentNoo, not the Eggo Waffles!! John has the most deadly addiction... <.<

    Hmm, maybe I should stop showing my inner geek...

    I positively WORSHIP the vocal layering in this song, it's so beautiful!! The ethereal sound makes it rate really high among my obsessions! The lyrics aren't exactly complicated, IMO. But I rave over the vocals.

    Lyric corrections (as always ^_^): "For so long I don't even know why now" instead of "by now". Aaand that's it. Props to you for being one of the few people on here to post a good version of the lyrics =).

    General CommentI think this song's about wanting to be with someone but never actually getting there.and then you realise that they weren't worth the time or the energy that you wasted on them.i can definately relate to that
