Gone Long Gone

Original and similar lyrics
I thought for the rest of my life You'd see me through it Guess all along I knew it Nothing mattered everything was all right When you saw to it Before I knew it you were gone long gone You said you would always be there Well I believed you I was a fool to need you Gave my love then I gave you my heart And then you flew it Before I knew it You were gone long gone Hard facing another day Just crying the night away Said more than I meant to say When I knew that you were gone I thought for the rest of my life You'd see me through it Yes all along I knew it Didn't matter and it didn't seem right And then you flew it Before I knew it you were gone long gone. You were gone long gone

Youth Of The Nation

P.O.D. "Satellite"
Last day of the rest of my life I wish I would've known Cause I didn't kiss my mama goodbye I didn't tell her that I loved her and how much I care Or thank my pops for all the talks And all the wisdom he shared Unaware, I just did what I always do Everyday, the same routine Before I skate off to school But who knew that this day wasn't like the rest Instead of taking a test I took two to the chest Call me blind, but I didn't see it coming Everybody was running But I couldn't hear nothing Except gun blasts, it happened so fast I don't really know this kid Even though I sit by him in class Maybe this kid was reaching out for love Or maybe for a moment He forgot who he was Or maybe this kid just wanted to be hugged Whatever it was I know it's because [chorus:] We are, We are, the youth of the nation Little Suzy, she was only twelve She was given the world With every chance to excel Hang with the boys and hear the stories they tell She might act kind of proud But no respect for herself She finds love in all the wrong places The same situations Just different faces Changed up her pace since her daddy left her Too bad he never told her She deserved much better Johnny boy always played the fool He broke all the rules So you would think he was cool He was never really one of the guys No matter how hard he tried Often thought of suicide It's kind of hard when you ain't got no friends He put his life to an end They might remember him then You cross the line and there's no turning back Told the world how he felt With the sound of a gat [chorus] Who's to blame for the lives that tragedies claim No matter what you say It don't take away the pain That I feel inside, I'm tired of all the lies Don't nobody know why It's the blind leading the blind I guess that's the way the story goes Will it ever make sense Somebody's got to know There's got to be more to life than this There's got to be more to everything I thought exists [chorus]

No Rest

ALEXISONFIRE "Old Crows / Young Cardinals"
We greet each day with bloodshot eyes The dirt of our labor still clingin’ to our hands Filled with our warped intentions The tread of our shoes filled with foreign sands The sun laughs in all our faces It shows a world that we can’t save So now, armed with blades in hand We cut a path from birth to grave We don’t know where we’re going But we know that we’re getting there No rest for the blessed Long life for the wicked We don’t think like you think And we move like no one moves With a song on our lips, across the land Born to traverse We don’t think like you think And we move like no one moves With a song on our lips, across the land Born to traverse We don’t know where we’re going But we know, we’re getting there No rest for the blessed Long life for the wicked Like a car crash Like a landmine Like mixing drugs, we are dangerous Like a snake’s tooth Like thin ice Like mixing blood, we are dangerous No rest for the blessed Long life for the wicked

Back When I Knew Everything

Aaron Tippin "What This Country Needs"
Oh, if I had a big ol' eraser I'd start from today And go back through life's pages And correct a lot of things Yeah, steppin' on toes with my foot in my mouth Yeah, thought I was the king But that was back Back when I knew everything Yeah, a good hard head and no regrets Is what I thought made the man But now life's hard knocks is about all I've got And sorry's what I am Yeah, I had my old worn-out opinion Oh, and I sure made it plain But that was back Back when I knew everything CHORUS So whaddya say forgive and foget One more chance is all I need Yeah, this ol' loose cannon is a mighty long shot This time I'm askin' please Yeah that's right, I was wrong Now all that I can say Is that was back Back when I knew everything Bridge A little too big for my britcher But life's a whittled me down to size I just hope there's enough of me left To apologize (Repeat chorus) Oh, that was back Back when I knew everything

Now You Know

THE AFGHAN WHIGS "Gentlemen"
Since you're aware of the consequences I can pimp what's left of this wreck on you Bit into a rotten one, now didn't you? And they watch you chew, chew, chew And they watch you chew, chew, chew Chew it up Did you have blinders on, my dear Or were you just willing? Or was I unaware of the damage a lie can do? I thought you knew, knew, knew I thought you knew, knew, knew Listen up Drive it off Punctuate it with a smoker's cough Light it up Stick around I told you somebody's going down now Spit it up Get it out Let me kiss that beautiful mouth Tell me is it the same? My sweetness, my everything And is this condescending a comfort at all to you? Oh, we bit into a rotten one Now didn't we? Well, baby now it's through, through, through Now it's through, through, through Now it's through, through, through Now it's through

Look On

JOHN FRUSCIANTE "Inside Of Emptiness"
I can't get through Knots in my mind I resent The self i can't find I can't get through A paper and a pencil Are the best friends i've got I went to downtown LA. Got picked up by the cops I didn't get what i wanted But i didn't care a lot I saw that life was kidding Look on I'm warning you I skipped a life To be here i've got no right I'm bad luck I used to feel a lot Things used to be alright so much was going on I'm empty now inside When i thought life was terrible Things were going fine Vincent called as a set up Look on It's not right I lost my fame It's a cheap trick I wanna do it again I've got no life I am a seperate entity From the guy i was before Here nobody wants me I hoped for something more I flip through empty pages That i thought i wrote on I can't tell what is dreaming Look on
