You Are Gone music video
You Are Gone is a song Greg wrote in 2012. The producer of the instramental says it was heavily inspired by House of the Rising Sun (1964) by The Animals.

About

The song was clearly about Greg's recent ex, Shiloh. He sang about his heartbreak and her lies, similar to his earlier break-up song about her, It's Over. The song is an unusual style for Greg as he not only sang, which up until that point most of his songs were more spoken word, but he also used screaming vocals as well. Another unusual aspect of this song is that Greg did not create the instrumental himself, it was created by producer/DJ Keith Camball. (Source)

Greg originally uploaded the "You Are Gone" music video to his main channel, but quickly deleted it and re-uploaded it to his Encore channel where it was eventually deleted. The odd music video consisted of Greg filming himself singing outside and throwing rocks down hills. (Source) In the video, it is clear it was filmed outside the New Mexico home he rented to be close to his girlfriend, now wife, Taylor, wile she was in high school. Some speculate Greg may have tried the sining and screaming vocal combination for this song to imitate Taylor's music taste.

Greg deleted all traces of this song and does not have it available to buy or stream on any music sites, as his songs usually are.

Lyrics

(Note: Official lyrics to the song can't be found, so this is our editors' interpretation.)

You know you called me yours once
You said we'd always be
You told me lies about future
But above all, you said you loved me

You know you can't fix what you have broken
There's no taking back the lies you've spoken
You are gone

You called friend and then your lover
Loyalty is all it takes to rise above her
You are gone

You stole my trust and my money
You replaced my pride with shame
And did I hear a thank you
My heart will never be the same

You know you called me yours once
You said we'd always be
You told me lies about future
But above all, you said you loved me

You painted a picture that I believed
and now I see I was decieved
You are gone

You tasted my skin and called it candy
I wish every day you never found me
You are gone

I gave you so many chances
To change your lying ways
You screamed oh god I hate you
And screamed back your the same

You know you called me yours once
You said we'd always be
You told me lies about future
But above all, you said you loved me

The time has come to say goodbye
You know damn well how hard I tried
You are gone

Every I love you and kiss alone
I was blinded but now I know
You are gone

You know you called me yours once
You said we'd always be
You told me lies about future
But above all, you said you loved me
