Gone, Gone, Gone - Phillip Phillips

Gone, Gone, Gone by Phillip Phillips on Grooveshark


The Experience: Phillip sings about the backbone, the cornerstone of true love. Love's about helping: "I'll share in your suffering."  It's about 'being there' for her: "I'm gonna be there to catch you." It's about  being thankful: "honestly, you've always done the same for me." It's about recognizing that I need her: "You're my crutch... the pulse that I've always needed.Not many people still dare to believe this kind of love exists anymore. Even fewer believe it's possible for them to live true love. Phillip's got the courage to believe, and to live, and to love.

Music Video:
What starts out 'only' as home footage from people anywhere turns into the answer to the song: undying love is not just idealistic lyrics  from Phillip to his girl. Love forever can be lived, and has already been lived, anywhere by anyone. Love: anywhere, anyone, forever.

My Take:
This isn't just Phillip's crush, or Phillip just thinking she's hot. This is sincere love. True love that starts now but will never end.  "Baby, I'm not movin on, I'll love you long after you're gone, gone, gone." I believe love survives into eternity.

Ask Yourself:

How high on the thermometer is my love? How much is my love just sparks, or how much do I help, thank, and accept my girlfriend or boyfriend? Is my love true love?


LYRICS:


When life leaves you high and dry
I'll be at your door tonight
If you need help, if you need help
I'll shut down the city lights
I'll lie, cheat, I'll beg and bribe
To make you well, to make you well

When enemies are at your door
I'll carry you away from war
If you need help, if you need help
Your hope dangling by a string
I'll share in your suffering
To make you well, to make you well

Give me reasons to believe
That you would do the same for me

And I will do it for you, for you
Baby I'm not movin' on
I'll love you long after you're gone
For you, for you
You will never sleep alone
I'll love you long after you're gone
And long after you're gone, gone, gone

When you fall like a statue
I'm gonna be there to catch you
Put you on your feet, you on your feet
And if your well is empty
Not a thing will prevent me
Tell me what you need, what do you need

I surrender honestly
You've always done the same for me

So I will do it for you, for you
Baby I'm not movin' on
I'll love you long after you're gone
For you, for you
You will never sleep alone
I'll love you long after you're gone
And long after you're gone, gone, gone

You're my backbone, you're my cornerstone
You're my crutch when my legs stop movin'
You're my head start, you're my rugged heart
You're the pulse that I've always needed
Like a drum baby don't stop beatin'
Like a drum baby don't stop beatin'
Like a drum baby don't stop beatin'
Like a drum my heart never stops beatin'

For you, for you
Baby I'm not movin' on
I'll love you long after you're gone
For you, for you
You will never sleep alone
I'll love you long after you're gone

For you, for you
Baby I'm not movin' on
I'll love you long after you're gone
For you, for you
You will never sleep alone
I'll love you long, long after you're gone

Like a drum baby don't stop beatin'
Like a drum baby don't stop beatin'
Like a drum baby don't stop beatin'
Like a drum my heart never stops beatin' for you

And long after you're gone, gone, gone
I'll love you long after you're gone, gone, gone
