(Are you really gone this time around?)

Verse 1

No, I don't believe it.

I don't believe you'd be gone from my life for long.

No, you can't leave me.

Cause I know the games fate plays with us are too strong.

Pre-chorus

Every time I turned around expecting to see a vacant place,

You were standing right there, we were face to face.

You have a tendency of crawling back into my life somehow.

And I don't believe that you're gone forever now.

Chorus

Are you really gone this time around? No.

Cause if you were, why doesn't my heart say so?

I always trust my instincts when it comes to you.

And no matter what I say and what I do,

I can't shake the feeling that we're not done yet,

Can't shake the belief that we're tied by fate

And that if you're ever lost, you'll be found.

So are you really gone this time around?

Verse 2

If I go by reason and logic

I can clearly see that I'll never get to see your smile again.

But I always believed in magic

And I just know that some kind of miracle will soon happen.

Pre-chorus

Every time I turned around expecting to see a vacant place,

You were standing right there, we were face to face.

You have a tendency of crawling back into my life somehow.

And I don't believe that you're gone forever now.

Chorus

Are you really gone this time around? No.

Cause if you were, why doesn't my heart say so?

I always trust my instincts when it comes to you.

And no matter what I say and what I do,

I can't shake the feeling that we're not done yet,

Can't shake the belief that we're tied by fate

And that if you're ever lost, you'll be found.

So are you really gone this time around?

Bridge

And if you really are gone,

If we're really moving on,

I want you to know that I'll still be right here.

I can't make you smile, but I can wipe your tears.

Cause nothing can change the role I play.

I'm here today and tomorrow, just like yesterday.

And I know we'll meet again somehow.

So are you really gone now?

Chorus

Are you really gone this time around? No.

Cause if you were, why doesn't my heart say so?

I always trust my instincts when it comes to you.

And no matter what I say and what I do,

I can't shake the feeling that we're not done yet,

Can't shake the belief that we're tied by fate

And that if you're ever lost, you'll be found.

So are you really gone this time around?
