When You're Gone

(I. Hanson / T. Hanson / Z. Hanson)

Lead Singer: Taylor



Well I just can't seem to pity
'Coz my heart's too numb to feel
And the smile does all the talking
Though the pain is all that's real
With the way that you keep screaming
I can hardly hear to think
And I feel the bridges burning
Underneath my feet

Where do you go when you're gone?
Where do you go when you're gone?
Oh how the road feels so long
Where do you go when you're gone?

Well I just want to stay dreaming
No, I just don't want to wake
Why can't we keep on sailing across this emerald lake
My forehead is still bleeding
from the thorns I used to wear
And I'm left alone and I'm beaten
For this cross I choose to bear

Where do you go when you're gone?
Where do you go when you're gone?
Oh how the road feels so long
Where do you go when you're gone?

Well I finally found what I'm looking for
Though the road's still long and the light's still far
But I finally found what I'm looking for
Well I finally found what I'm looking for
Though the road's still long and the light is still far
But I finally found what I'm looking for

The voices fall like timber
And the fear it pours like rain
And my heart is crushed to cinders
Underneath this kind of pain
Well there is no resolution
When the revolution's dead
So I'm left with no solution
For the voices in my head

Where do you go when you're gone?
Where do you go when you're gone?
Oh how the road feels so long
Where do you go when you're gone?
