Gone, Gone, Gone

(unreleased demo)
written by Madonna and Rick Nowels
Time: 4:01
----------
Needing, needing
All at once comes the silence
Begging, pleading
No more emotional violence

The withdrawal into pain
The result to never need again
Is this love?
I think not
I want out

Chorus:

This love affair is over
Gone, gone, gone
This love affair is over
Gone, gone, gone
[This love affair]
It's so sad
[This love affair]
What we had
Gone, gone, gone

Bleeding, bleeding
Then comes the recognition
Anger seething
I don't need your permission

And I don't know who you are
And this thing has gone too far
Is this love
I think not
I want out

(chorus)

You're in too deep
You cannot keep
The promises you made
Our happiness was brief
The end of love
The end of grief

Gone, gone, gone

And I don't know who you are
And this thing has gone too far
Is this love
I think not
I want out

(chorus)

[This love affair]
Gone, gone, gone
This love affair is over
Gone, gone, gone
