"Gone" (live from Boston)

"'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

Thanks for hanging around

Hutch, yeah babe

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 gotta lose yourself along the way
You change your name but that's okay, it's necessary
And 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

I turn aside what they say
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
Then you discover what you thought was freedom just was greed

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

Don't do it, shove off
No no no
Get yourself over here
Come over here, come over here
