Gone Lyrics

Found On:


The Best Of 1990-2000 (2002)


The Complete U2 (2004)

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"Gone" (Mike Hedges mix)

"'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

You get to feel so guilty, you got so much for so little
Then you find that feeling just won't go away
You were holding on to every little thing so tightly
'Til 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
I'm not coming down
I'm not coming down

You wanted to get somewhere so badly
You gotta lose yourself along the way
You change your name but that's OK, it's necessary
But 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

And I'm already gone
Felt that way all along
Closer to you every day
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, then you discover
What you thought was freedom just was greed

Goodbye, no emotional goodnight
I'll be up with the sun
Are you still holding on
Not coming down
Down
I'm not coming down
Down
I'm not coming down

Gone, sun, done, sun
Gone, sun, done, sun
Sun
