You think a prayer will bring her back? Maybe some positive thinking? While ya hope it’s all a bad dream Cause she’s gone and you keep pretending She’s lying there Thinking about the things she said And thinking how it could be different If you could do it over again But she’s gone and you keep pretending She’s lying there She’s gone and your heart breaks she’s gone She’s gone and you can’t believe it’s true Are these songs about a girl or are these songs about this city? Either way the feelings the same Cause she’s gone and you keep pretending She’s lying there She’s gone and your soul aches she’s gone She’s gone and you can’t believe it’s true that she’s not lying next to you anymore

The first kiss is kinda cool Just before things turn cruel What you thought was innocent and true Will always trouble you It’s the heartbreak that defines It will follow you wherever you go It will introduce you to everyone you'll know It’ll be part of your soul Constantly trying to take control It’s the heartbreak that defines It’s the heartbreak, it’s the forbidden fruit that opens your eyes Everyone's looking for a fix While we betray each other with a kiss We’re all heart inside and out Driven by love and plagued by doubt It’s the heartbreak that defines

You’ve got a heart full of broken promises I’d tell ya that I love you but it won’t mean a thing You've got a million reasons to strike back and I’d tell ya that I love you but won’t mean a thing You should really come with a warning sign on your face But I guess ya kinda already have one You’ve got a mouthful of stinging curses And I’d tell ya that I love you but it won’t mean a thing You’ve got a head full of really bad ideas And I’d tell ya that I love you but it won’t mean a thing Do you really think everyone is wrong but you? Do you really think everyone is just out to make your life worse? You’ve got a fist full of reasons to be mad And I’d tell ya that I love you but it won’t mean a thing You’ve got an earful of what you want to hear And I’d tell ya that I love you but it won’t mean a thing There’s no way that anyone will change your mind But I guess I learned that the hard way

A little confused about what I’m singing? Yes she was a girl But not flesh and blood Does it really matter The pain is universal When someone leaves who you thought would always be there I’m always thinking about her She used to sing our song so sweetly You could hear her all through the street I heard a band playing on the corner So I asked of they could play our song They just laughed and said They didn’t know it Launched into something I never heard And everyone else sang along I’m always thinking about her She used to sing our song so sweetly You could hear her all through the street

about

Here are the demos for "She's Gone". One take, creaky piano bench and pedals, no click track. Sloppy but really honest recordings.


Are these songs about a girl or are these songs about this city?
Either way the feelings the same
