"Gone" as written by Christopher E. Stevens and Toby Mckeehan....
I told the girl that you should treat her like a lady and
She told me all the things you did and it was shady, man
She said that what you say and what you do are different things
While you were telling me that you were checking out them blingy rings

She said she's had enough
Well, it sounds to me like you're straight out of luck
And she said she's all through
And life's not blowin' her kisses thanks to you

I wanna know, wanna know what you were thinkin'
I can't imagine why it didn't even sink in
They say you never know what you got till it's gone
(Never know what you got till it's gone)
I wanna know, wanna know what you were thinkin'
I can't imagine why it didn't even sink in
They say you never know what you got till it's gone
(Never know what you got till it's gone)

She said she's had enough
So, it sounds to me like your still out of love
And she said you weren't true
And life's not blowin' her kisses thanks to you

I wanna know, wanna know what you were thinkin'
I can't imagine why it didn't even sink in
They say you never know what you got till it's gone
(Never know what you got till it's gone)
I wanna know, wanna know what you were thinkin'
I can't imagine why it didn't even sink in
They say you never know what you got till it's gone
(Never know what you got till it's gone)

She said it's gonna be alright
Cause God made a way through the pain and he opened her eyes
And she said you came crawling back
But after what you did to her she wouldn't have any of that

I wanna know, wanna know what you were thinkin'
I can't imagine why it didn't even sink in
They say you never know what you got till it's gone
(Never know what you got till it's gone)
I wanna know, wanna know what you were thinkin'
I can't imagine why it didn't even sink in
They say you never know what you got till it's gone
(What you got, what you got, till it's gone)

    General CommentThis song reminds me of LFO. It is just loads of fun to listen to. And the meaning is pretty obvious.

    General CommentI saw him live a couple of days ago. It was incredible. When he introduced this song he was talking about how men need to treat women right and not abuse them basically.. on a physical and emotional level... and how women need to tell men to treat them right and bounce if he aint all there you know. So, I kinda think that it's a guy who's missing out on this great girl because he didn't treat her right and he never knew what he had and how great it was until she was gone. Yeah! lol

    General CommentI love tobymac also, though i have seen him several times in concert and his shows are all "very rehearsed" ( no doubt i love him in concert). Wish he would change it up some, though I still have fun no doubt.
