"Gone" lyrics - SWITCHFOOT

(Jon Foreman / Tim Foreman)

Ha ha
One two, one two
One two, one two

She told him she'd rather fix her makeup than try and fix what's going on
But the problem keeps on calling even with the cell phone gone.

She told him that she believes in living bigger than she's living now
But her world keeps spinning backwards and upside down.

Don't say so long, and throw yourself wrong.
Don't spin today away, 'cause today will soon be

Gone, like yesterday is gone
Like history is gone
Just try and prove me wrong and pretend like you're immortal.

She said, he said, live like no tomorrow
Everyday we borrow brings us one step closer to the edge. Infinity.
Where's your treasure, where's your hope, if you get the world and lose your soul?
She pretends like she pretends like she's immortal.

Don't say so long, you're not that far gone
This could be your big chance to make-up
Today will soon be

Gone, like yesterday is gone
Like history is gone
The world keeps spinning on
You're going, going,
Gone, like summer break is gone
Like Saturday is gone
Just try and prove me wrong
You pretend like your immortal.
You're immortal
You're immortal, ha ha

We are not infinite
We are not permanent
Nothing is immediate
We are so confident in our accomplishments
Look at our decadence.

Gone, like Frank Sinatra, like Elvis and his mom,
Like Al Pacino's cash, nothing lasts in this life
Gone, my High School dreams are gone, my childhood sweets are gone
Life is a day that doesn't last for long.

Life is more than money, time was never money
Time was never cash, life is still more than girls.
Life is more than hundred dollar bills and roto-tom fills,
Life is more than fame and rock and roll and thrills,
All the riches of the kings end up in wills
We've got information in the information age
But do we know what life is outside of our convenient Lexus cages?

She said he said live like no tomorrow
Every moment that we borrow brings us closer
To the God who's never been short of cash
Hey Bono, I'm glad you asked.
Life is still worth living, life is still worth living, life is more that we are.
