up and gone lyrics – hoobastank

staring at the white above
can’t tell if i’m alive or am i dead
or is it in my head?

where’d i go wrong?

staring at the white above
one day i closed my eyes and here i am
a cold, unhappy man

i’ve come to realize the life i have i hate
the pulse i need is slowly fading
until i’ve lost it all

i’ve been waiting for an inspiration
for a chance i never got to take
before it’s much too late

where’d i go wrong?

where’s the boy that used to run?
could it be he’s up and gone away?
he seems so far away

and all the things i could have done
could it be they’ve up and gone away?
they seem so far away

it feels as if the boy in me
has left and been replaced with a cheap and bitter
impostor of myself

i must find the one that used to be
approach him slow, don’t be afraid to say
“can he come out and play?”

where’d i go wrong?

where’s the boy that used to run?
could it be he’s up and gone away?
he seems so far away

and all the things i could have done
could it be they’ve up and gone away?
they seem so far away

staring at the sky above
i’ve found a chance, i’m finally going to take
i’ve learned from my mistakes

where’d i go wrong?

where’s the boy that used to run?
could it be he’s up and gone away?
he seems so far away

where’d i go wrong?

and all the things i could have done
could it be they’ve up and gone away?
they seem so far away

where’d i go wrong?
