When You’re Gone You’re Gone

About the Song
I had the feeling at the time of writing the song about working too hard, not seeing the light of day much, the pressures of the daily routine and having to push forward just to stand still. This song is questioning that attitude and when in some future time you will look back with regret.

Maybe it’s a bit ’smell the flowers while you can’ but with more pressured and rushed perspective on life which fits in with the songs agressive style.

I also decided to do a diary of a song I’ve been working on, I thought I would write down what I need to do to get the song from a few scrappy ideas in my head, to guitar, to vocals, to recording, mixing, and mastering. You can read the complete song diary week by week here.
Diary of a song

Lyrics
v1
You’ve got a lot of things to do
You’ve got a lot on your mind
But you can’t find the money
And you can’t find the time

v2
You keep pushing pushing pushing
Just to keep on track
You’ve got to keep moving so you don’t fall back

v3
Doing everything you can just to stick to the plan
You’re not doing what you want
Just doing what you can

v4
You keep taking taking taking so you stay upright
But you’re tired all day
And can’t sleep at night

Chorus 1
Man you’re gonna wonder
Where it all went wrong
When you’re gone you’re gone

Chorus 2
Man you’re gonna wonder
Where it all went wrong
When you’re gone you’re gone

Then you’re gonna look back
And see what you’ve become
When you’re gone you’re gone

Chorus 3
Man you’re gonna wonder
Where it all went wrong
When you’re gone you’re gone

Man you’re gonna wonder
And see what you have done
When you’re gone you’re gone

Bridge
Don’t you know
They’re dying to know
Who am I
To tell you why
When don’t you know
