Song Lyric Sunday – Gone So Long by Breathe Carolina

This one was tough today. I’ve been trying to find a song for a good hour now, but I’m not sad. I’ve listened to so many amazing songs, it’s just hard to settle on the one! I think the reason I finally picked this one is that the whole point of doing this is to introduce you to something you may not have heard.

I have to admit that when I first heard Breathe Carolina, I didn’t like them at all. I call their style electronica/screamo (is that even a thing?), or something like that. Amazingly enough, they grew on me. It’s one of those things that when you go to a live concert and get caught up in the joy and excitement, you start feeling their music somewhere in your heart. It also helps to meet the band and interact with them. I’m pretty sure Adelle still has the pair of pants she wore that one of the singers signed (“You want him to sign your thigh??”).

Sadly, the band that I fell in love with isn’t together anymore. I think they are still out there, but the guy who, I believe, made them good and held them together left in 2013. I happened to see them at Warped Tour last year and we ended up leaving because they just weren’t the same.

It doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy the music of theirs that I have and love, though. So, here is one of my favorites.

“Gone So Long” by Breathe Carolina
Lyrics from AZ Lyrics

My eyes open to the sound of a song I’ve heard
Don’t know the name, but I know all the words
Sun came up, crawled into the front seat
Memories leaving me, was it all a dream I had?
Time for us to wake up

I’ll save my words to make the most of it
I never meant to be gone so long

Do you still remember my touch at all?
I never meant to be gone so long
Do you still remember my touch at all?
I never meant to be gone so long

Street lights passing
Every one gets me a heartbeat closer
To where it started beating
Keep me feeling safe and sound
When everything that’s right is upside down
Was it all a dream I had?
Time for us to wake up

I’ll save my words to make the most of it
I never meant to be gone so long

Do you still remember my touch at all?
I never meant to be gone so long
Do you still remember my touch at all?
I never meant to be gone so long as I have
You won’t be home, I never meant to be gone so long
Do you still remember my touch at all?
I never meant to be gone so long

The world still moves on
I’m sorry I made you wait
I wish that I, I could stay
The world still moves on
(I live for this, but I’d die for you)
I’m sorry I made you wait
I wish that I, I could stay
The world still moves on
(I live for this, but I’d die for you)
I’m sorry I made you wait
I wish that I, I could stay
The world still moves on

Do you still remember my touch at all?
I never meant to be gone so long
Do you still remember my touch at all?
I never meant to be gone so long as I have
You won’t be home, I never meant to be gone so long
Do you still remember my touch at all?
I never meant to be gone so long
