Every morning I wake up and you are home
But in your eyes I see that I'm alone
You've left me with your body in my arms
But I can't feel you anymore - You are gone

I can touch your skin but you aren't there
Frustration burns in me, it's more than I can bear
I wanna take you in my fists and squeeze the life back into you
But there is nothing I can do - You are gone
And I can hold you in my hands
But you are gone, you are gone, you are gone

You've slipped away like a fistful of sand
You are gone, you are gone, you are gone

I am staring straight into your eyes
You never turn away or tell me lies
But you are with some other man while I am lying next to you
And there is nothing I can do, you are gone

    I think this is really about an old love, somebody he was with for a long time. They were still together, but she just wasn't into the relationship and was in fact with somebody else. He is trying to hold on to her, but she is like sand slipping through his fingers no matter how hard he tries to hang on.
