"Never Gone" as written by Steve Diamond, Gary Baker and Kevin Scott Richardson....
I really miss you
There's something that I gotta say

The things we did,
the things we said,
Keep coming back to me and make me smile again.
You showed me how to face the truth.
Everything that's good in me, I owe to you.

Though the distance that's between us now, may seem to be too far.
It will never separate us, deep inside I know you are

Never gone, never far, in my heart is where you are.
Always close, everyday, every step along the way.
Even though for now we've got to say goodbye,
I know you will be forever in my life. (Yeah)
Never Gone

No, no, no

I walk along these empty streets.
There is not a second you're not here with me.
The love you gave, the grace you've shown,
Will always give me strength and be my corner stone.
Some how you found a way to see the best I have in me.
As long as time goes on, I swear to you that you will be

Never gone, never far, in my heart is where you are.
Always close, everyday, every step along the way.
Even though for now we've got to say goodbye,
I know you will be forever in my life. (Yeah)

Never gone from me
If there's one thing I believe
I believe
I will see you somewhere down the road again.

Never gone, never far, in my heart is where you are.
Always close, everyday, every step along the way.
Even though for now we've got to say goodbye,
I know you will be forever in my life. (Yeah)
Never Gone

Never gone, never far, in my heart is where you are.
Always close, everyday, every step along the way.
Even though for now we've got to say goodbye,
I know you will be forever in my life. (Yeah)
Never Gone

    General CommentYes, rather than be about a lover, I tend to think this song is about someone very special dying. It tears me up every time-this song is beautiful.

    General CommentWow, this song is really beautiful and I can`t help but put it on repeat. This song is about someone who`s going on with life without someone they love, yet they are still trying to live life to the fullest and is applying everything he has learned from the other person's love. He is saying that this person will always have a part in their heart. I LOVE the line "even though for now we`ve got to say goodbye" because after all . . . some people like to believe that goodbyes are not forever. =) I would say this would be a sort of continuation of the story from their song Incomplete.

    General CommentThe persona has "broken up" with his lover, be he still remembers her and hopes that one day they can be together again.

    General CommentKevin wrote this song as a tribute to his father.

    This song is beautiful. It reminds me of a friend of mine who just passed away. She was the kindest, sweetest person in the world who was taken away in an instant and because she was such a bright light in the lives fo everyone who knew her, I know she will be "never gone".

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my friends. Every single one of them. Each of them has, in some way, helped turn me into the person I am today. Without their influence, their guidence, there are things I KNOW I wouldn't have been able to get through without them. That's the kind of love you never forget.

    General CommentBrian, from the Backstreet Boys, contributed to write this song because his grandfather died little time before the album was released. everytime they play this in concert, he always dedicated this song to his grandfather. everytime i hear it, i cry, because it reminds me of by grandfather who passed away three months ago...
