Written letters carried up by rising balloons
I know that you'll get this someday
Everybody tells me that it's time to move on
But I still have to write this letter

So you gotta go to space
One way or another
Soldier of the human race
So you gotta go to space
On a suicide mission
Which one are we on?
Do you even know that you're gone..?

Disappointed couldn't call you for a few months
After what you'd done nothing was left
You disappeared from off the face
I hoped you would phone
One day wondering I called mother said you were dead

Before you left I wish I'd said
All this time I wasn't angry
Despite mistakes you had to make
Long ago my love forgave you
I had let it go
Long time ago
Not soon enough for you to know

Fire in the car, alarm
Firefighters on the run-on
Couldn't save the kids on time
Everybody burned alive

I had let it go
Long time ago
Not soon enough for you to know

    General CommentSo, I love this song. But I've also got questions.

    It seems he was with this girl who hurt him and he broke things off. Months later he finds out from her mother that she died. He has regrets that he had not forgiven her before she was gone.

    I think I get the whole thing until the end. What is the bit about the firemen and the kids? How does this relate to the rest of the story. Was she killed in the fire? Why fire in the CAR ALARM? What dies that mean? Any ideas?

    BTW, I'm pretty sure it's "Do you even know that you're GONE" (not GOING)

    This is such an unusual, haunting,moving song. I just wish I got the "fire" part.
