I tried hard to keep you
I needn't have tried
It seems you'd decided
When did you decide?
So this is the last time
I cry in the dawn
It seems you were always
Always already gone

You never were happy
You had to be free
You took all the freedom
You needed from me
Then you and your freedom
Flew thither and yon
You're free to be always
Always already gone

I couldn't have dreamed you
But I might as well
You leave me with only
A story to tell
But at the beginning
Our story is done
Because you were always
Always already gone...

    My InterpretationI feel its about someone who's never content with what they have. Not in the sense that, they only want the best and newest things. Rather, someone who is more or less destined to not appreciate what they have, sadly leaving them to an endless rat race. This nature probably keeps them isolated deep inside, and incapable of providing the relationship the speaker has hoped for.. Who now only laments about this soul who is always already gone, always ready to chase another endeavour to live an idealized life while leaving other possibilities behind..

    I personally identify with the one who's always already gone, the lyrics remind me of my own mannerisms, thus influencing my interpretation of this track.
