"Gone" as written by William David South, Brendon Arthur James, Thomas William George Welham and Adam Michael Wilson....
Sometimes I rush to get right to the end
I know I'll get to this place when I feel the time is right
Sometimes I think that I know what I'm all about
But when I look inside I can see the truth come out

Sometimes I try to go on
I know it's wrong
'cause when I see your eyes
I can see the flame is gone, gone, gone

Sometimes I climb to the top to see what's above
But when I find it there, there's no time for happiness
Sometimes I count up to ten just to see when
When will I see the sun, in my eyes I've just begun

    General CommentI think these lyrics are about really liking someone, and because you like them so much you are rushing ahead to spend as much of your life with them as possible, but because you are doing that "the flame is gone" and you are putting off the other person in the relationship that you trully, desparately want to be with.

    General CommentI think this song is about telling someone that you love her,he is not sure whether to tell that person or not(I know i will get to this place when I feel the time is right...)but when he tries to go on with it he can not see the flame in her eyes,she lost interest in him maybe,and when he climbs to the top(when he thinks that she has responded positively to his feeling),he still can not see the sun,and happiness.

    cuz you know the flame is GONE.Close to perfection great song...
