"Gone" as written by Brandi M. Carlile, Phillip John Hanseroth and Timothy Jay Hanseroth....
Life is too short to waste all your time
Running too quickly to the finish line.
Time is a track that's ready and set
And the longer you live, the closer you get to being

Gone, gone like the evening
Sun, sun when it sets
Gone, gone like the darkness
At dawn, and then they forget

There's no guarantees or promise of wealth
When you're only allowed so much time on the shelf
Time isn't money, it's only a lie
Because everything lost can be found but you're

Gone, gone like the evening
Sun, sun when it sets
Gone, gone like the darkness
At dawn, and then they forget

But live in doubt, live in fear,
And you might live forever
Or live it up and watch your back
And you might live for better

Gone, gone like the evening
Sun, sun when it sets
Gone, gone like the darkness
At dawn, and then they forget

    General CommentA song about our mortality and that we will all be gone one day so there is no need to rush life and that we should live it to the max. So true. So pretty.
