"Gone" as written by and Carlos Daniel Tomas....
I'm all alone on the road
High water tied underneath the flood
In desserts of dust if I must i will stand

These are my promises

I hope you're winning the war
Make everything like it's was before
All that we were we can still be again

I swear

I'm afraid you're gone

I don't want you
I don't want you to go
I've got the sun in my eyes
I didn't see you passing me buy
I just wanted you
I just wanted you to know

Inside of me forever you'll go

Now I just want to go home
Carried by all that was ever known
Held in these hands if I must I will stand

Given these promises

Now i've been running too long
These feet are too tired to carry on
Weighing us down if you're gone I will drown

I'm afraid you're gone

I don't want you
I don't want you to go
I've got the sun in my eyes
I didn't see you passing me buy
I just wanted you
I just wanted you to know

If forever exists
Inside me it where you belong
If forever exists

I've got the sun in my eyes
I didn't see you passing me by
Now i've been running too long
To carry on
I don't want you
I don't want you to go
I've got the sun in my eyes
I'm afraid you're gone
If forever exists
Inside me it where you belong

If forever exists

    General CommentI'm not too sure what this song means, i think its about someone dying or going...the film clip for it is really good, and this song is just really really good!!

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song I connected to it straight away...it's a beautiful and meaningful song...

    I think it's about losing someone close to you like a boyfriend or girlfriend and suddenly realising that they're actually gone...but i agree with the above comment it could also suggest that somebody has died and they're film clip does suggest this...

    I love The Butterfly Effect, and I think they are an Aussie Band with a huge amount of talent and great potentials.

    General CommentI agree with kit kat with the fact that he has lost someone he loves, and the suddenly realising it, but the lines

    "I've got the sun in my eyes
    I didn't see you passing me by"

    They make me think hes in denial and refuses to believe that his loved one is gone, but by the end of the song, he finally comes to terms with it.

    "I'm afraid you're gone"

    but anyway .. so 2 me the song is all about not being ready to say goodbye to somebody .. its like .. the dont want them to go
    (i dont want u 2 go)
    .. but there have ..
    (iv got the sun in my eyes, i didnt c u passing me by)
    and the person thats been left beind is scared
    (im afraid ur gone)
    .. cos they dont wanna be alone in the world by themself without that person .. then finally

    General CommentHe loves someone and didn't realise what he had until now it's gone, and is alone and suddenly afraid now that he has come to terms. He would do anything to have what they once had back and feels he cannot go on without her. He wants her to know he will always love her.

    You don't have to agree, and I'm not saying this IS the meaning, but this song means a lot to me, and that is what it means to me as that is exactly the situation I'm in. I did think it could suggest someone passing away, but I've never seen it that way because it reminds me so much of me and this guy.

    Beautiful lyrics. Beautiful song. Beautiful band.

    General CommentAn absolutely incredible song. This is phenomenal. Aussie rock at its best. wow - every time i listen to this song, it sends shivers down my spine. It's a very tragic yet beautiful song. A song about facing the fact that you've lost a loved one.. yet they'll forever be inside of your heart. This is just such a powerful and impacting song, it is unforgettable. I love everything about this song - the way he sings it (i just love his voice in general - an amazing voice he is blessed with) I love the tune of this song, and the lyrics - EVERYTHING!! I hope people overseas can discover their amazing music. I must add, they are amazing live!! they're awesome. The lead singer really sings with raw emotion, straight from his heart. By the way, I think that this video clip is absolutely amazing, yet very sad. But it's beautiful. I love the look of the sky with the clouds and the rays of sunlight bursting through. The song and the video make me want to cry. It reminds you that life is so fragile and you can lose your loved one in an instant. Makes you appreciate your loved ones more and it makes you want to stop taking them for granted. Also, makes you cherish the small and simple moments shared with the one you love. Sorry, I just can't get over this song, lol. I have so many thoughts relating to it, lol. Love it sooo much

    General CommentThe song meaning is pretty obvious - the concepts of loss and how we deal with it are rife.

    Great song and a great Aussie hard rock band. Saw them live at the Ekka this year, and loved it. Clint is a bit of a tool, but Glenn rocks the bass and back-up vocals!!!! They make awesome music.
