Now that You're Gone
(same chorus version)
© 2011 Starburst Music Publishing, LLC/Nery Bauer

Now that you're gone
Shut me in a dark room
Close down all my deep thoughts
Now that you're gone
(vocalese): Huuuu, Huuuu, Huuuu....

(verse 1)
Good Lord I'll never make it, there's nothing left to live for
Won't even try to fake it, just go and take my name off
The list of those still conscious, with smiles upon their faces
I'm doomed to spend forever, in this living hell oasis

Now that you're gone, shut me in a dark room
Close down all my deep thoughts, turn my insides pale blue
Lock me in a deep cave, cloak my world in numbness
Seal me in a sad grave, designed for all the loveless
....now that you're gone

(verse 2)
And while you're living your new life, I hope you think you got it right
Chasing all your brand new dreams, ain't always what it sometimes seems
Cause freedom can be fleeting, and guilt can get you choked up
Your rendezvous with destiny, may one day wake us both up

(repeat chorus)

I saw the stars all shining and I never had it better
Till the shredding of the lining, broke the promise of forever
And the kiss upon your forehead, was the one to say goodbye
Now the only sound escaping is my insides screaming why

(repeat chorus)

fade out....

crashing reprise

Wow! What a great sounding song. Great writing, vocals, and instrumentation made this song really easy to listen to. I really enjoyed listening to this arrangement.

This is just a wonderful, powerful tune. Well sung, played and produced. Lyrically dynamic. Great Job!!!

Nice voice good band

Lovely feel and great sounding voice. The backing track is just great also. An accomplished writer with accomplished people around them. Would like to hear more from this writer.

This song has a great melody. The vocal performance is excellent. I love the arrangement. Good contrast between the verse and chorus melody. Great build into the chorus. Nice bridge. This is a well crafted song. Very good recording.
