good and gone lyrics – frank turner

i have searched for you
in the darkness of a dozen dingy dance halls
in countless queues in cafes in the suburbs
in the bed clothes of a thousand stranger’s bedrooms

and i have yearned for you
in the airless hubs of international airports
in the hollow h*ll of many hundred hotels
in the solitary stillness of the early hours

i still do

sometimes the things you need
are right back where you started from

so f*ck you hollywood
for raising us on dreams of happy endings
in postcards of the prom kings and the prom queens
for teaching us that love was free and easy

f*ck you mötley crüe
for telling tales that skimp on all the dark sides
for teasing us with access and with excess
for bringing out the lowest drive in everyone
oh f*ck you

sometimes the things you need
are right back where you started from
sometimes the things you need
they hang around a little while
good and gone

if i could just have a second try
to take the second call you made that night
to find myself an airport and a credit card
find a flight or something
to head back to the start

sometimes the things i need
are right back where i started from
sometimes the things i need
they hang around a little while
good and gone

they’re good and gone
