Stars - Going, Going, Gone Lyrics




Going, going, going, going.... Gone

Still hooked on cellophane
Hanging 'round the mall and all
Each penny numbs the pain
Sends you gently for the fall
I followed you last night
I saw you turn your lights out
I knew it wasn't right
I watched in fear and doubt
It's gotten to be that way
(Going, going, gone)
What did you do today
(Going, going, gone)

Look good in that red dress
I bet the boyfriend's happy
Your face is scarred with age
You're twenty three
But how can that be
You're still hooked on cellophane
Killing time with gin and lime
Each second numbs the pain
Love's just another rhyme
It's gotten to be that way
(Going, going, gone)
I'm scared but I'm okay
(Going, going, gone)

There's nowhere to move on
There's nowhere to move on
All I see again
All I see
All I see again
All I see
All I see again
All I see
All I see again
Is me everywhere
It's me...
Dah da dah da do dut dah
Dah da dah da do dut dah
Dah da dah da do dut dah
Dah da dah da do dut dah
Dah da dah da do dut dah
Dah da dah da do dut dah

Stars Going, Going, Gone Comments
  1. Nash Idaho

    of course i know that metric/stars/feist are all connected through BSS but I never realized Emily sang on a Star's album, because this album has been "lost" to the world of streaming services, I am so happy I found a blog post that mentioned this album and that Emily sang on it!

  2. Dave Williams Williams

    this is kinda a creepy song

  3. Amanda Bentes

    Whys isn’t this version on Spotify? This is so powerful! I keep coming back to it after so many years. The vibe, there’s something so mysterious about it, I cant quite put my finger on it. This will linger with me forever

    Alejandra Hinojosa

    thats literally me everydayyyyyy,, they. just have the live version :(

    Alicia Every

    They don't own the album. They signed a really bad contract and it would cost a lot for them to buy out the contract. They can't re-release it either.

  4. Micah Martin

    Why isn't this on spotify

    Amanda Bentes

    Micah Martin My point exactly!

    Jaclyn Miller

    I think it's because at the time this album was released, Amy Millan wasn't a part of the group. This is Emily Haines singing with Torquil. I really wished they would put it on, though! This is one of my favorite Stars songs.

    Alicia Every

    They don't own the album. They signed a really bad contract and it would cost a lot for them to buy out the contract. They can't re-release it either.

  5. Zampini B

    I was 20 when I got into this and now I'm 31. fucking timeless

  6. Ryan Alexander

    thanks stars! you rock :)

  7. Aleksey Z.

    They took a phone's busy signal and made it into a hit.

    James Boyko

    So did Harry Nilsson with "one"

  8. jrregan

    Nic Harcourt Sounds Eclectic before eclectic was stolen by marketers and lame-oids.

  9. Verdigris

    This is the only song that can make me feel lonely.

  33. InMediasResIII

    There are songs that make you feel, and then there are songs that give a voice to how you feel.

  34. Xdarcia

    There's nowhere,
    To move on.
    There's nowhere,
    To move on.

    All I see, yeah yeah, all I see.
    All I see, yeah yeah, all I see.
    All I see, yeah yeah, all I see.
    All I see, yeah yeah, is me everywhere,
    It's me.

  35. Xdarcia

    Look good in that red dress,
    I bet the boyfriend's happy,
    Your face is scarred with age,
    You're twenty-three but, how can that be?
    Still hooked on cellophane,
    Killing time with Gin and lime.
    Each second numbs the pain,
    Love's just another rhyme.

    It's gotten to be that way,
    (Going,going, gone.)
    I'm scared but I'm okay,
    (Going, going, gone.)

  36. Xdarcia

    Still hooked on cellophane,
    Hanging 'round the mall, and all.
    Each penny numbs the pain.
    Sends you gently for the fall.
    I followed you last night,
    I saw you turn your lights out.
    I know it wasn't right,
    I watched in fear and doubt.

    It's gotten to be that way,
    (Going, going, gone.)
    What did you do today?
    (Going, going, gone.)

  37. divadro102

    i dont kno...me im a techno (trance, house, DnB, dubstep, etc...) kind of guy but my best friend said u should listen to this...i did...i gotta say its nice..its not my style..but im not hating on it...so ima say the same i say when i comment on techno....for all those haters...dont listen to this if u dont like it and dont waste ur time wit negative comments...

  38. survivorbk

    She sounds like Karen Peris from The Innocence Mission

  39. anathir

    hmm i was wondering why it was sounding like metric.

  40. Laura Alexander

    well i know you posted this a long time ago but this girl (Amy Millan) and the girl from Metric ( Emily Harris) are also in another canadian band called "Broken Social Scene" so the way the songs are sang in that band could influence the way they sing in their other bands leading to the fact they found alike.

    Just a guess.

  41. orcarine

    all I seeeeeeeeee yeah yeah all I seeeeee

  42. winkwinkers799

    the voice...there's something very sinister about it. Like there can be someone right behind you when ur listening to it

  43. Jess Pavic

    this sounds ALOT like the girl from metric
    what gives?

  44. ssap io

    "All I see" part is so nice.. I rarely ear Haines sing that warm.

  45. purplepolkaheart
