Lyrics

Already Gone

When you call me, call me by my name
And I’ll answer, just the same
Where is Eden? Could have put it on
But everyone else had already gone.

If it comes to seeing don’t stand with the crowd
Try not to speak words too loud
And if the actress stumbles and forgets her words
Just pretend that you never heard

CH
I touched something of another time
Not aware of all the signs
But it’s long after and well beyond
And it’s already gone.

Thinking like you wanted but it all went wrong
No one listened it took too long
I never studied I never understood
So I didn’t bother like I should

Escape the pressures that no one wants
And see what is really lost.
Did the dancer, dance for free
I didn’t watch, it meant nothing to me

CH
I touched something of another time
Not aware of all the signs
But it’s long after and well beyond
And it’s already gone.

And if you ask me would I do it all again
I can’t answer, I can’t say
Still looking, still looking on
But the past goes on and on

I’m tired but that’s no excuse
I’ll swear to nothing if it’s any use
I didn’t find Eden and I didn’t put it on
as everyone else had already gone.

CH
I touched something of another time
Not aware of all the signs
But it’s long after and well beyond
And it’s already gone. Already gone. Already gone
