Hands on a Hardbody - I'm Gone Lyrics

(Kelli)
I work at the UPS
The job is pretty good, I guess
I sort the packages midnight till dawn

Around here you can bet
There's no better job to get
It's steady work you can rely upon

But I can almost feel the ocean breeze
When I read a packaged labelled "overseas"
And sometimes I get down on my knees
And pray
Jesus slipped me in His package
And shipped me far away
From teeth to fix and one more bill to pay

And I'm gone
So far away gone
Like yesterday, gone
So fast, so far gone
Like a shooting star, gone
Like all good things, locked in a safe
And a summer fling, a dandelion you blew a wish upon

Scattered to the Four Wings
I'm gone

(Greg)
Sounds like you got it all mapped out
Only without a map

Well, I, always had this dream
Since I was thirteen
To be a stuntman on the screen
Yeah, I bet I'd do pretty good
At least, I think I could
If I could get to Hollywood
Hey, come with me

(Kelli)
What?

(Greg)
It's dangerous driving out by yourself
I need somebody to keep me awake
Change the channel on that satellite radio

(Kelli)
I don't know

(Greg)
Don't you wanna see palm trees once before you die?

(Kelli)
Sure, but...

(Greg)
Gas and grub we'll just 50/50 split
You sleep in the cabin and I'll sleep in the back

To start
(I could see the people that I've seen)
It helps to be compact
(There in People Magazine)
I know that for a fact
(Dancing with celebrities till dawn)
Maybe you could act

(Kelli)
For real? You really think I could?
(A girl as bright as you)
Might as well while I look good
(And tell 'em what you'll do)
And where some pretty clothes and carry on
(Just don't forget I'll be there too)

'Cause I can almost feel the ocean breeze
(Oh, can't you feel the ocean breeze?)
When I read a label labelled overseas
(I'll jump from buildings; swing from trees)

(Both)
And sometimes I get down on my knees and pray
If I win, then I'll drive you
If you win, drive me, okay

Somewhere far away from here
That's where we'll finally be
Somebody that no one here can see
I know there's a life out there for me

We're gone
So far away, gone
Like yesterday, gone
So fast, so far gone
Like a shooting star once it streaks
Across the summer sky
Or fireworks on the Fourth of July
A dandelion you blew a wish upon

(Kelli)
Hit the pedal to the medal

(Greg)
And break off that rear view mirror

(Both)
And everyone will know that we were here
When we're gone
When we're gone
When we're gone
