"Disappear" as written by Beyonce Gisselle Knowles, Ian Dench, Dave Mccracken, Hugo Chakrabongse and Amanda Ghost....
If I begged and if I cried
Would it change the sky tonight?
Would it give me some light?
Should I wait for you to call?
Is there any hope at all?
Are you drifting by

When I think about it
I know that I was never there or even cared
The more I think about it
The less that I was able to share with you
I try to reach for you, I
Can almost feel you you're nearly here
And then
You disappear (disappear, disappear, disappear)
You disappear (disappear, disappear, disappear)

And when I lie all by myself
I see your face, I hear your voice
My heart stays faithful
And time has come and time has passed
If it's good it's got to last
It feels so right

When I think about it
I know that I was never there or even cared
The more I think about it
The less that I was able to share with you
I try to reach for you, I
Can almost feel you, you're nearly here
And then
You disappear (disappear, disappear, disappear)
You disappear (disappear, disappear, disappear)
You, you disappear (disappear, disappear, disappear)
(You disappear)

I missed all the signs, one at a time
You were ready
What did I know?
Starting our lives
Now my love, I'm ready to show

When I think about it
I know that I was never there or even cared
The more I think about it
The less that I was able to share with you
I try to reach for you, I can almost feel you, you're nearly here
And then
You disappear
You disappear, you disappear
You disappear, disappear
You disappear

    General CommentIts about not putting your all into a relationship and not realizing what you have until its gone. My favorite song off the new album.

    General Commentmy favorite part of the song is the very opening:

    If I begged and if I cried
    Would it change the sky tonight?

    It's really beautiful...

    General CommentI'm amazed about how beautifully she does such low notes ... Perfect for the total feeling of this song, knowing maybe you missed out your chances with someone that could have been the one. Hurts. One of my favorites of this incredibly good double disc. I'm torn deciding which I like better but I think in the end the "real" Beyonce in the soft tracks wins me over.

    Beyonce's voice is a true gift to my ears.

    General CommentThe beginning is amazing, my favourite bit is

    “When I think about it, I know that I was never there, or even cared.”

    Looking back on a relationship and seeing what you could’ve done better but realising it’s too late, and not putting your all into it

    “I try to reach you, I can almost feel you, you’re nearly here, but then you disappear.”

    Almost as if she’s dreaming, she can almost get to him but as soon she wakes he ‘disappears.’

    Beautiful song

    General CommentI think its also about the other person not putting the effort into the relationship

    If I begged and if I cried
    Would it change the sky tonight?
    Or give me sunlight
    Should I wait for you to call?
    Is there any hope at all?

    General CommentI think this song is about having someone in your life who was wonderful and perfect for you but you didn't realize it until it was too late and he was already gone. The person realizes what they let slip away and think back to how they should've done so many things differently but now it's too late because he's disappeared

    My InterpretationI actually have a different interpretation to this song, based on my own experience.

    I think it's about a loving relationship that was doomed to end, though she wants to hold to it. Now they are broken up, she still feels attached to him though she knows they are over. I think regardless if you know the relationship was going to end, you still are drawn to that person regardless, especially if you loved them very deeply.

    I think in the first verse, she's questioning herself and wondering about him though they are clearly over.

    Then the pre-chorus, it's talking about how she's trying to be in denial about her feelings, thinking it will hurt her less, when in all actuality, it hurts more. She still feels aspects of him in her life, regardless of the fact that he's gone.

    Then the chorus, but then he "disappears" because she goes back to reality and realizes it over.

    Second verse, she is thinking about the "what-ifs" in the relationship, had they worked out.

    Bridge, she looks back as to realizing how their relationship was doomed. He was ready to move on, but she isn't. But she realizes now, she has to move on now.

    Hopefully, you like this interpretation. I love how she simply just sings the lyrics, as it should be. Simple words express the most emotions. I love it<3
