Going Going Gone Lyrics – Lucy Dacus


[Verse 1]
Daniel made a pass
We started flirting after class
Stealing hats and trading jackets
Locking lips and braces brackets
After dinner, before dark
We’d meet at the same bench in the park
Sweaty palms, averted eyes
Wasn’t sure if he and I were going out

[Chorus]
Going out
Going out, ooh
Going, going, out

[Verse 2]
The sunset threw a tantrum
It wasn’t ready to go just yet
Mother Earth said, “Time for bed”
It resisted and the sky went red
The color filterеd out
Like pulling teeth out of a cloud
The bloody battle еnded
No, the sun can’t break the habit of going down

[Chorus]
Going down
Going down, ooh
Going, going, down

[Verse 3]
Daniel in ten years
Grabbing asses, spilling beers
Another ten and he’ll have a daughter
She’ll grow up and he can’t stop her
Back on the bench, making plans
Watching the day end hand in hand
I always had to be home by eight
My dad would kill me if I was late
I’ll be going now

[Chorus]
Going now
Going now, ooh
Going, going, now

Going gone
Going gone
Going gone, ooh
Going, going, gone

[Spoken Outro]
“Cool, yeah that was the one I think”
“Yup that was great, that’s what we were looking for. Thanks guys!”
“Cool, wow! I am so happy. Thank you everyone for doing this. I owe y’all whatever you ask of me for the rest of my life”
