"Going, Going, Gone" as written by and Bob Dylan....
I've just reached a place
Where the willow don't bend
There's not much more to be said
It's the top of the end
I'm going
I'm going
I'm gone

I'm closin' the book
On the pages and the text
And I don't really care
What happens next
I'm just going
I'm going
I'm gone

I been hangin' on threads
I been playin' it straight
Now, I've just got to cut loose
Before it gets late
So I'm going
I'm going
I'm gone

Grandma said, "Boy, go and follow your heart
And you'll be fine at the end of the line
All that's gold isn't meant to shine
Don't you and your one true love ever part"

I been walkin' the road
I been livin' on the edge
Now, I've just got to go
Before I get to the ledge
So I'm going
I'm just going
I'm gone

    General Commenta song about a person who's given up in life, they are either going to die, or they are going to try to find a new life somewhere else and rid themselves of the old shell they once knew.

    General Commentwow i have a less depressing version, not sure where it's from:

    well i've just reached a place
    where i can't stay awake
    i got to leave you baby
    before my heart will break
    i ain't going,
    i ain't going,
    i ain't gone

    come over here baby
    cause i'm telling you this
    you got to believe it
    you got to give me one more kiss
    i ain't going
    i ain't going
    i ain't gone

    fix me one more drink, babe
    and hold on one more time
    but don't get too close
    to make me change my mind
    i ain't going
    i ain't going i ain't gone

    now my mama always said something true
    "you gotta follow your heart
    you'll be praying at the end of the line
    all that's gold wasn't meant to shine
    just don't put your horse in front of your car"

    now from boston to birmingham
    is a two day ride
    but i got to be going now
    cause i'm so dissatisfied
    i ain't going
    i ain't going
    i ain't gone
