Gone Away
Maybe in another life
I could find you there
Pulled away before your time
I can‘t deal it‘s so unfair

And it feels
And it feels like
Heaven‘s so far away
And it feels
Yeah it feels like
The world has grown cold
Now that you‘ve gone away

Leaving flowers on your grave
Show that I still care
But black roses and Hail Mary‘s
Can‘t bring back what‘s taken from me
I reach to the sky
And call out your name
And if I could trade
I would

And it feels
And it feels like
Heaven‘s so far away
And it stings
Yeah it stings now
The world is so cold
Now that you‘ve gone away

I'd say God save your soul, I think it just makes more sense than the other...

I personally think it's
"I saw your soul"
but thats just me. I reckon it sounds more like that than anything else thats been suggested.
Peace Out Dude

Someone told me it was either:
"I'll Sell Your Soul"
"I Saw Your Soul"
OR
"I'll Save Your Soul"

:rolleyes:

'And since it's a mmmm sound it can't be 'God save your soul'.

But listen to "D.U.I."---even though the lyric is "I drink and drive," Dexter throws a mmmm sound in there, so I thought it was "My drink and drive" at first (which, of course, makes no logical sense but it's what I heard nonetheless). By this, it could still be "I'll save your soul."

I used to think it was "I say it's so." Now I'm so confused I just think of it as emotive yelling of an indeterminate nature.

I used to think it was "I say it's so." Now I'm so confused I just think of it as emotive yelling of an indeterminate nature.

I remember that it was asked in an interview or something a few years ago and they said it was just: "I say, yeah so". If you listen to live versions of gone away " I say, yeah so" makes the most sense too.

I thought it was 'I saw your soul'. And I can't understand why they don't write that part on the lyrics.

How many times will this question be asked ?

I think its "I see your soul". Or "I'll save your soul".

'mercy on your soul' does make sense for christ's sake! And since it's a mmmm sound it can't be 'God save your soul'. Han't you ever heard a priest or whatever say "May God have mercy on your soul" - so to me it's like asking for God to have mercy on [insert latest theory persons]'s soul. Shortened so it fits.
By the way, when I talked about "sense", I wasn't refering to the meaning of the words for themselves, because of course that it would make total sense to say "Mercy on your soul" in the song duhh, but it doesn't match Dexter's vocals in that part of the song, I think... and there is a "mmm" song indeed, like "My save your soul", but as miss 1565 said, in DUI happens the same thing, so the most accurate might be "I'll save your soul", I don't know, but it's a cool topic to discuss!

I'm another one in the "I'll Save Your Soul, woah, yeaa-heeaaaahh oohhh!" camp. ;) :) :D

It really can't be anything else, logically. Phonetically, even.

And YES, it's the greatest part of the entire song. No argument. I hath spoken. :cool:

Glad someone agrees with me.

And how is it possible for someone to save a soul of another person?? The "mercy on your soul" possibility might not be phonetically possible, but this one is not even logically acceptable!! Maybe Dexter doesn't sing anything, just a couple of screams, whatever;)

If you listen to all live 'gone away's" you clearly hear he's sayin' ;"I say yes Oh,Ooh...yeahh" ! :D
