Song Spotlight: Gone Again


Driving into work today I got a nice little pick me up courtesy of WXPN. They played the Indigo Girls song "Gone Again" off their 1999 release Come on Now Social. It was particularly fitting since the song, penned and sung by Amy Ray, is set in a few of the places that Inky and I are going on our next trip to Australia: Sydney, Melbourne and the Northern Territory. It was also nice timing since Inky and I will be leaving for our trip in exactly 6 months, or 180 days. It can't get here soon enough. In the meantime, here are the words:

I think I'll bag that trip for two
And pack it up to Kakadu.
Honey, it's not for the weather
Or the lack of loving you.
I got all this in between
Something I could not foresee.
All the deals I made don't matter
If I can't just let you be.

Gone again gone again
There ain't no way I'm gonna let this heart mend
Gone again

I walked in King's Cross for a while,
Gave a junkie girl a smile.
We both trade it in for danger
Or the company of strangers.
She said all her family
Was at the welfare agency,
Then she swindled my last twenty
For a kiss and some poetry.

Gone again gone again
There ain't no way I'm gonna let this heart mend
Gone again

If I don't make Kakadu,
I'll be at the Rainbow Room.
I'll be courting some disaster
With the Melbourne wrecking crew.
Honey, all this is to say
That every dog don't got its day,
If we take the love we're given
And we throw it all away.

Gone again gone again
There ain't no way I'm gonna let this heart mend
Gone again
