Like shining oil, this night is dripping down
Stars are slipping down, glistening
And I'm trying not to think what I'm leaving now
No deceiving now, it's time you let me know.
Let me know

(Chorus)
When the lights go out and we open our eyes,
Out there in the silence, I'll be gone, I'll be gone.
Let the sun fade out and another one rise
Climbing through tomorrow, I'll be gone, I'll be gone.

This air between us is getting thinner now
Into winter now, bittersweet
Aand 'cross that horizon this sun is setting down
You're forgetting now, it's time you let me go, let me go

(Chorus)
When the lights go out and we open our eyes,
Out there in the silence, I'll be gone, I'll be gone.
Let the sun fade out and another one rise
Climbing through tomorrow, I'll be gone, I'll be gone.

(Bridge)
And tell them I couldn't help myself
And tell them I was alone
Oh, tell me I am the only one
And there's nothing left to stop me.

(Chorus)
When the lights go out and we open our eyes,
Out there in the silence, I'll be gone, I'll be gone.
Let the sun fade out and another one rise
Climbing through tomorrow, I'll be gone, I'll be gone.

    My song intepretation for this one is very much related to 'total recall' 2012 movie which is slated for worldwide release on 2nd aug. At some point on the emo-grasp of quiad (colin farrell) the protagonist from this movie who suffers great extent of discontent of his low life existence despite how much he loves his wife, lori (kate beckinsale).

    It's about someone who is holding on to his loved one who is no more living and years have passed and surely,you will forget, even if it's another day, you won't see him ever again because he can't stay, he gone. The lyrics are so touching to the heart that it tells so much.

    I think this is about a guy or girl that knew the relationship they were in wasn't for the best of either of them. So the guy or girl decides to break it off and leave the other forever. In the bridge where is says "tell them i couldn't help myself" i think it meant he or she couldn't help but fall for the other even though they knew it wasn't meant to last.
