  • Lyrics: While I’m gone, while I’m gone, is somebody holding you I’ve got nothing to show, nothing to show, just some fading memories Wishing I was there to hold you, just to feel you breathe And why I’m letting you go baby, I’ll never know, but it’s not just up to me So while you’re waiting for your prince to find you, maybe I’m not the one you need Is somebody tempting you my dear, telling you things you want to hear While I’m gone, while I’m gone, is somebody holding you, while I’m gone Do you need something more, than I’m offering for you, more than I can give No matter how much we both wanna cling to, we know it’s not how you should live You say I’m out on the roam, I can’t give you a home, and you can’t live on a breeze But I’m not the kind of man to control you, or beg you on my knees Is someone seducing you my dear, whispering lies into you’re ears While I’m gone, while I’m gone, is somebody holding you While I’m gone, while I’m gone, is somebody touching you, while I’m gone Is somebody touching you, the way that I used to do While I’m away from you, are you fearing the same things too I remember when we first met, the cherry kiss that I can’t forget Now I’m neither alive nor dead, I lie here thinking of you instead While I’m gone, while I’m gone, is somebody holding you While I’m gone, while I’m gone, is somebody touching you, while I’m gone While I’m gone, I’m wishing the best for you, but I’m gone
