Goo Goo Dolls Here Is Gone Lyrics

Here is Gone
(Johnny Rzeznik)

You and I got something
But it's all and then it's nothing to me
Yeah
And I got my defenses
When it comes to your intentions for me
Yeah
And we wake up in the breakdown
Of the things we never thought we could be
Yeah

I'm not the one who broke you
I'm not the one you should fear
We got to move you darling
I thought I lost you somewhere
But you were never really ever there at all

And I want to get free, talk to me
I can feel you falling
And I wanted to be all you need
Somehow here is gone

I have no solution
To the sound of this pollution in me
Yeah
And I was not the answer
So forget you ever thought it was me
Yeah

I'm not the one who broke you
I'm not the one you should fear
What do you got to move you darling
I thought I lost you somewhere
But you were never really ever there at all

And I want to get free, talk to me
I can feel you falling
And I wanted to be all you need
Somehow here is gone

And I don't need the fallout of all the past
that's here between us
And I'm not holding on
And all your lies weren't enough to keep me here

And I want to get free, talk to me
I can feel you falling
And I wanted to be all you need
Somehow here is gone

And I want to get free talk to me
I can feel you falling
I know it's out there
I know it's out there
I can feel you falling
I know it's out there
I know it's out there
Somehow here is gone
I know it's out there
I know it's out there
Somehow here is gone

I think the song is about the desperate want to want to work things out but the lies of pretending there's no real feelings trying to keep the other happy (obviously for the girl's sake) . I don't think they were "officially" together. Simply because "it's all and then it's nothing to Me". There's an implied history between them. Possibly they were together at one point broken up and now maybe they wants to try but she got recked emotionally from other relationships.

Regardless Goo Goo Dolls are my favorite band in the entire world they are amazing <3



Stuck in the past. Here is gone. | Reviewer: Johnny Nagels | 3/24/11

This song is about a guy who was with a girl who wasn't really in the relationship because she has been hurt by relationships in the past. She was never able to get over her past hurt so she was never herself with him or allowed herself to be exposed in love again.

This guy is paying for the crimes of her previous lovers but she's paying for them to. He's telling her he's not them. He really never knew her because she never opened up and truely was herself. She keeps herself bottled up so she can't be hurt again. Which will never allow her to be loved.

This guy is trying to stop her falling self-destructive intentions and bring her to the present. But she's not here.



here is gone,but why?!? | Reviewer: hazel jane bongcales | 7/25/09

I think,it's about a girl who is secretly in-loved with her long-time friend... But unfortunately,she has fallen in-love with her guy friend!!! But the girl feels that he doesn't want to have her in his life... That's too painful,isn't it?!?



SONG MEANING | Reviewer: Jo | 7/12/08

This song is about a casual relationship. The singer or guy wants to commit but the girl wont allow it.

"You and I got somethin' but it's all and then it's nothin' to me." Shows how the relationship is off and on. The guy cares about the girl but backs off because hes hurt by her rejection.

"I got my defenses when it comes to your intentions for me" Is the guy basically saying he doesnt want to be used.

"And we wake up in the breakdown of the things we never thought we could be " - Both parties got into in believing that they could keep it casual and nobody would want more. But now they have ended up the same way everybody else does.

"I'm not the one who broke you, I'm not the one you should fear. We got to move you, darlin' " - The guy believes the girl cant commit because she has been hurt and is stuck in the past.

"And I want to get free, talk to me
I can feel you fallin' and
I wanted to be all you need
Somehow here is gone " - Guy wanted to help and be her everything but feels she is a lost cause.

"I am no solution to the sound of this pollution in me. And I was not the answer so forget you ever thought it was me." - Guy has realised that allthough he loves her shes bad news and he has not been helping himself by sticking around for so long. He decides to break it off.

"And I don't need the fallout of all the past that's in between us. And I'm not holdin' on. And all your lies weren't enough to keep me here" - Girl demands to know why he has had the sudden change of heart. Guy doesnt want to argue about the past but says its because of her lies.

Just speculating here but i think the girl lied about having a bad past as an excuse not to commit. The guy was mad because he only stuck around because he believed she could be helped and they could eventually be together.

Here is gone means the oppourtunity has gone. Even though he wanted those things then she cant have them now.



meanig of the song | Reviewer: pipz | 7/11/08

its a about a guy who had a relationship with a girl who was, in the first place, still in love with someone and she is in deep pain because the man she's in love with won't have her. The guy found out the truth that he was only some sort of a rebound,he was devastated half of him still wants her eventhough he knows the girl is in love with someone else and the other half hates the girl and wants to move on. Ironic! hehe -pipz



stop arguing and appreciate difference in opinion | Reviewer: a friend | 6/21/08

I think this song is more about the ending of a relationship that felt good to both of them, but couldn't work to begin with. their opinions were just so different, that they had to lie to keep it together in the first place, and then they realized that "here is gone", that things aren't the way that they were when they first met, and they need to break up.

in the first verse, he comes right after a major fight, and realizes that everything's falling apart

In the second, he looks over himself, and realizes that there's nothing wrong with what he was doing, and that it just can't work

and in the third, he breaks up with her, explaining that he needs to, so that he can continue with his life

The chorus fits with each of those situations, but the reason that they changed it in the end is to show his doubt at his actions, and his internal struggle of whether he did the right thing or not.



Real Meaning of the song | Reviewer: Caline | 2/15/08

Kristi you are completely wrong. This song is about a guy being hurt by this girl so many times. He thought she was gone but he realizes she was never there. He tells her that he has his defenses when he sees her intentions...This is to everyone that has been hurt. He tells her "all your lies weren't enough to keep me here" witch means he is moving on. Obviously she lied to him over and over so that he can accept her but at the end of the day he can't be there for her no matter how much he loves her, knowing that the lies will never stop. Anyway great song!! I can def relate.



One love | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/17/08

I lost my boyfriend in a terrible car crash this was his my space song and he was an amazing person we dated for about 3 years and his life was cut at 19. He loved the Goo Goo Dolls and when ever I hear a song by them it makes me cry... Miss you babe.
