Maccabees, The - Went Away Lyrics

Look at you with slimmer lines
Dirty toes un-showered
Unholy sight the state of you
And every sign that you're wired again

Just look at you in the trolley line
Wild eyed you're still flying
A little less and a little more
In the middle ground is still miles away

So hold me close don't let me go
I need you so
Tell me something I don't know
That I need to know
Hold those arms around my neck
I need you so
Somewhere sunk behind those eyes
a man I've always known

And if you go to sea again
We'll see it out to horizons
To see it all it's a little late
And better never but it's happening

So hold me close don't let me go
I need you so
Somewhere sunk behind those eyes
A man I've always known

That never went away
Hold me close don't let me go
I need you

    Bryan Poveda

    Now It's So Vivid I don't think my life keep beeing the same without them 😪 so really sad

    Craig E.

    Them and Anberlin. Hard to absorb the loss. The way their music inspires, and the feelings summoned. great full for the past 14 years of their music and Anberlin.


    Just wait for the re-union tour in a couple of years!

  16. María Ríos

    I love this song. It's amazing. Orlando's voice it's beautiful. *u*

    Joao Hamilton Pereira Muñoz

    +Lupita Weirdo se parece mucho a la cancion Hurts like heaven de Coldplay

    María Ríos

    No manches!, no es cierto OuO, no se parece en nada. Y no tiene que ver que no me gusté Cold Play; sino objetivamente escrbiendo no se parecen, el ritmo es completamente distinto a Went Away.

    Joao Hamilton Pereira Muñoz

    yo creo que si, tiene esa alegria, ademas el tono es muy parecido y sobretodo el riff en el que me parece que utilizan el mismo efecto de guitarra, una mezcla de ligero overdrive y un toque de reverb

  17. Jim Smith

    Best band in Britain. Bar none. Shivers down my fucking spine.

  18. Arielle Seerattan

    This song has a special place in my heart. I went away for the first time, to an entirely new culture, for 3months. I was alone and overwhelmed. This song brought me peace

  19. Anna Michell

    I swear this isn't "just a song". It really gets me into this nostalgic and melancholic atmosphere.
    This is, by far, my favorite song from Given To The Wild. I really feel my love for this song strengthens each time I listen to it.

  20. Stuart Ray

    Spectacular!!! like every other track on the album!

  21. Grisel Calderón M.
