Verse 1

Sometimes, somewhere in the silence of nights,

I freak out, say, am I doing it right?

I've stopped turning to friends now when I fall.

If I'm breaking, I'd break behind these walls.

Chorus

Gone are those days.

I've tucked myself away,

In a far-away place

Behind my smiling face.

Gone is that girl.

Now I can face the world

Without feeling afraid.

That timid girl is dead.

Hook

That's the price of moving on.

That warm part of me is gone.

Gone, long gone,

Long gone, gone.

Verse 2

I don't trust anybody anymore,

Not since you took my heart, walked out the door.

I'm not ears now, I've given up that role.

I no longer try to rescue lost souls.
Chorus

Gone are those days.

I've tucked myself away,

In a far-away place

Behind my smiling face.

Gone is that girl.

Now I can face the world

Without feeling afraid.

That timid girl is dead.

Hook

That's the price of moving on.

That warm part of me is gone.

Gone, long gone,

Long gone, gone.

Bridge

My compassion twists in its grave.

Don't lock back now, be brave, be brave.

Be cold, indifferent, strong.

Never thought I'd sing this song.

Hook

That's the price of moving on.

That warm part of me is gone.

(Gone, gone, goneā€¦..)

Chorus

Gone are those days.

I've tucked myself away,

In a far-away place

Behind my smiling face.

Gone is that girl.

Now I can face the world

Without feeling afraid.

That timid girl is dead.

Hook

That's the price of moving on.

That warm part of me is gone.

Gone, long gone,

Long gone, gone.
