Kina Grannis’ New MV is “Gone”

Kina Grannis and Ross Ching have done it again. They’ve managed to churn out yet another charming MV with novel yet simple special effects. The song is “Gone” and is from Kina’s several year old Stairwells album. Although I imagine this one didn’t take quite as long to shoot as “In Your Arms“, but regardless, you shouldn’t overlook this one.

LYRICS

Stop in the dark where the stars are still shining on me
Go with the wind, let it lift away the memories
I tried to set you free
You kept trying to rescue me
But you can’t tell a heart when to start, how to beat

I never wanted to say goodbye
You never wanted to see me cry
Now I’m afraid to open my eyes

Are you gone, gone, gone?
Tell me I’m wrong, wrong, wrong
It’s been so long, long, long
Are you gone, gone, gone?

Back at the start we were the only thing that mattered
And we smiled, unafraid, as we filled the night with laughter
And I tried my best to see what you tried your best to be
But you can’t tell a heart when to start, how to beat

I never wanted to say goodbye
You never wanted to see me cry
Now I’m afraid to open my eyes

Are you gone, gone, gone?
Tell me I’m wrong, wrong, wrong
It’s been so long, long, long
Are you gone, gone, gone?

Though it seems that we were not meant to be
I have to disagree, you are the one for me
And I know someday we will find our way I hope it’s not too late
Please stay

Are you gone, gone, gone?
Tell me I’m wrong, wrong, wrong
It’s been so long, long, long
Are you gone, gone, gone?
