something that is gone lyrics – waterboys

something that is gone
something that is gone
something that i had
just yesterday
but where i must have laid it
i really couldn’t say
something that was right
but now it’s wrong
something that is gone

something that i lost
something that i lost
something that i cradled in my hand
something rather special
that pertained to all my plans
i’m left here wondering
what on earth it was
something that i lost

something that i missed
something that i missed
i’ve looked all around my room
but it’s not here
how can a thing of permanence
so swiftly disappear?
something is the cause of all this
– something that i miss
