"Gone" (live from Mexico City)

"'Gone' is the portrait of the young man as a rock star, trying to cut himself free from responsibilities and just enjoy the ride, the suit of lights, fame... But I think what this album tells you is that some things you can't leave behind. That's really it. It's like the university professor who just can't dance. Deep down we weren't as shallow as we'd like." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Hutch, going going but not gone

You get to feel so guilty, got so much for so little
Then you find that feeling just won't go away
You're holding on to every little thing so tightly
Till there's nothing left for you anyway

Goodbye, you can keep this suit of lights
I'll be up with the sun
I'm not coming down, down
I'm not coming down, down
I'm not coming down, down

You wanted to get somewhere so badly
You had to lose yourself along the way
You change your name and that's ok, it's necessary
'Cause what you leave behind you don't miss anyway

Goodbye, you can keep this suit of lights
I'll be up with the sun
I'm not coming down, down
I'm not coming down, down
I'm not coming down, down

And I'm already gone
Felt that way all along
Closer to you every day
I didn't want it that much anyway

You're taking steps that make you feel dizzy
Then you learn to like the way it feels
You hurt yourself, you hurt your lover, now you think you discover
What you thought was freedom was just greed

Goodnight, no emotional goodbyes
I'll be up with the sun
You're still holding
I'm not coming down, down
I'm not coming down, down
I'm not coming down, down

Gone, gone, gone, gone
Gone, gone, gone, gone
Gone, gone, gone, gone
