"the girl is gone" as written by William Blaise Benwell Rees, Kai Christian David Fish, Stephen Blaine Harrison, Henry William Cope Harrison and Kapil Trivedi....
The girl is gone, the girl is gone
The girl is gone, the girl is gone

Exchanging love for an empty glass
A strangers touch and a strangers laugh
But when its gone and the night has passed
I want the thing that i cant touch
Fingerprints on a dusty wall
Remind me of what went before
As shadows dance on a bedroom floor
They're just like whats on a distant shore

But i was wrong thinking that i'd be strong,
Always wanting more
But i was wrong see how the girl is gone
Pushing me out the door
But i was wrong thinking that i'd be strong,
Always wanting more
But i was wrong see how the girl is gone

The girl is gone, the girl is gone
The girl is gone, the girl is gone

The memories are still so strong
The clock ticks the girl is gone
I used to think even though we were young
Some how we'd just hold on
Disappointments a deadly thing
You spread like butter on the bed linen
Together then but living in sin
We had our hopes but what did they bring

But i was wrong thinking that i'd be strong,
Always wanting more
But i was wrong see how the girl is gone
Pushing me out the door
But i was wrong thinking that i'd be strong,
Always wanting more
But i was wrong see how the girl is gone

The girl is gone, the girl is gone
The girl is gone, the girl is gone

The girl is gone, the girl is gone
The girl is gone, the girl is gone

    General Comment"Trading love for an empty glass" like buying a drink for a girl hoping that they will love you??
    "They're just like whats on a distant shore"??
    This song is about one night stands and how hard they are on your emotions, yeah your together but your living in sin we had hopes but what did they bring?? Nothing but heart ache.....
