"Going Away" as written by and Meg/frampton Frampton....
Please don't forget me, I'm going away.
I'm taking a taxi to Kentucky, where they don't even know
All about me; I just need to feel safe.
I've got a thousand sweaters, and shoes, and paintings to hide;
The skeletons in my way, (don't ask where) I'm going

I'm going away, I'm going my way.
Finally, it's my time, to be lonely enough. Unloved and I can't wait.
Don't forget what I said; don't forget my letter.
Every night I pray for you.
I don't got a religion. isn't that something? I miss those days.

I see that bottle; it's now ten years aged.
I've got the marbles I could sell for money;
Got a pair of fresh shaved legs.
Won't you baby come with me?
I've got a extra space
In my car, in my heart, in my mind
Look there's the passenger seat by the boat that you gave
Don't know where I'm going

I'm going away, I'm going my way.
Finally it's my time, to be lonely enough. Unloved and I can't wait.
Don't forget what I said; don't forget my letter.
Every night I pray for you,
I don't got a religion. isn't that something? I miss those days.

Well he said, slow down; slow down;
Think it over; we've all got wretched closets.
A silly girl pride kills more than AIDS
Lately I say come on, I've thought it over,
I don't wanna die here; I've no desire to get married.

I can't read the others anymore.
Alone; I must learn to race myself

I'm going away, I'm going my way
Finally it's my time, to be lonely enough. Unloved and I can't wait
Please forget what I said, please forget my letter.
Every night I pray for you;
I don't got a religion to think that something will make those days.

I, I'm not going halfway
I'll find my way
I, I, every night I pray for you,
Don't believe in Heaven or that it could be a happy place
I, I'm going away

    General CommentAt first, I thought that first line of the last stanza was: "I, I'm not going Catholic," but I guess it's not. Lol. But I wouldn't be surprised if it was...Meg & Dia tend to have "opinions" on religion. xD

    General CommentOh, and the line that goes:

    "Look there's the passenger seat by the boat that you gave"

    I thought it was:

    "Look there's the passenger seat by the poastcards you gave"

    ? I could be wrong ?

    General CommentYeah, you're right. It is "Look, there's the passenger seat by the postcards you gave." Why would they give her a boat? Hahah. Aaand also, it's "I've got some bibles I could sell for money." at least that's what I hear. And I hear "Finally, it's my time to be lonely and lost, unloved and I can't wait." I could be wrong thoughh.

    General Commentit's "but silly girl pride kills more than AIDS" not "a silly girl pride kills more than AIDS" it makes more sense because it sounds like a conversation in which the guy is saying "We've all got wretched closets but silly girl pride kills more than AIDS."

    i hear "baubles i could sell for money" not marbles and not bibles.
    i think its baubles because she could be selling her jewelry and such to get by.
