Long Gone

 



Long gone


 


A troubled youth I was, I knew it all


We would climb so high we wouldn't fall


Youth ruled the world after all I was nineteen


I knew about life, love and every in between


 


A girl caught my eye,tried to calm me down


She showed me things, tried to turn me around


It was time to be a man but all I cared for was me


I lived for the moment, I just wanted to be free


 


Then the time came to man up and it was too late


Her love died and vanished, my life's worst state


Not wanting hurt to continue, I wanted an easy out


Then He stepped in an taught me what life was about


 


Listen with your heart and consider others needs first


Take care of the one's you love, then quench your thirst


Be who you are on the inside and don't try to fit in


The love you seek will then start to grow from within


 


Never let go for tomorrow, for what you feel for today


You might never get to speak the words you wish to say


It's easy to think what you feel inside your own soul


The hard part is forming words to decipher is the goal


 


As a youngster, I didn't know what I had till it was all gone


Woke up dazed and confused, what was dusk and what dawn


Don't let the little things get lost, slip through the crack


Once gone... your love, your life, you can never get back
