Alicia Keys – When Gone Is The Glory lyrics

Chorus: 1
When gone is the glory
When gone is the fame
When gone is the name
And you're left with yourslf

Verse: 1
I look in the mirror
To search your face
To remember who you are
Who you ever were

Chorus: 2
When gone is the glory
When gone is the shine
Is gone the whole
Of your future and pride?

Verse: 2
I look all around
To search for a friend
That no longer stands
Till the bitter end

Chorus: 3
When gone is the glory
When gone is the sun
When gone is the game
Then what have you won?

Verse: 3
Headache and pain
Of what could have been
Only you know the truth,
Of what is within

Chorus: 4
When gone is the praise
When gone is the fun
Is gone, the worth,
Of what you've become?

Verse: 4
When I am alone
At the end of this story
How does it feel,
When gone is the glory?
