Gone

lyrics

left my lover sleeping and slipped off into the night, i’m going, i’m going, i'm gone
from this town where living never seems to be enough, i’m going i’m going, i’m gone
i don’t need no one beside me, i don’t need no heartbreak thighs
i don’t need your galaxy girl, gotta a wall of dark to ride
leaking out this prohibition, spiggoting all that’s inside
pocket holes left trailing my ex-jobs, ex-wives, ex-lives

ah-hi-ee--ya-ha, ah-hi-ee-ya-ha, can’t hold me down
ah-hi-ee--ya-ha, ah-hi-ee-ya-ha, my homes a sound

where the tide is pulling me to dance into the night, i’m going, i’m going, i'm gone
sinking down until i find the source of all that cries, i’m going, i’m going, i’m gone
all i need is whiskey mister, i don’t no other guide
you can keep your north star cos there, ain’t a map where one should hide
feverish i fling myself at mercy of the countryside
where i go there’s no return alive

ah-hi-ee--ya-ha, ah-hi-ee-ya-ha, can’t hold me down
ah-hi-ee--ya-ha, ah-hi-ee-ya-ha, my home's a sound
