Goner Lyrics

on Amazon Music

I’m a goner, somebody catch my breath,
I’m a goner, somebody catch my breath,
I want to be known by you,
I want to be known by you.

Though I’m weak and beaten down,
I’ll slip away into this sound,
The ghost of you is close to me,

    I feel as if 'Goner' isn't just a plea to God, but to anyone listening. To anyone that surrounds him. Because it's definitely a plea, however not to one particular person or being.

    The line "Somebody catch my breath" is like Tyler asking for anyone to help him, to support him and his troubles with Blurry. Along with "I've got two faces, Blurry's the one I'm not". It is like he is asking for someone to pull him away from blurry and save him.

    One other thing, he repeats "I want to be known by you" quite a few times during the song, which I believe represents the attention that no one is giving Tyler and the anxiety he is facing. It sounds as if he just wants anybody to notice him, not only for his anxiety and Blurry issues but for who he really is.

    "Don't let me be gone" signifies how Tyler knows he is almost to far gone to be saved, however, won't accept this and is crying a plea of help to save him from being gone or taken whole by Blurryface.

    I Think This Song Is A Plea To God That He Needs Help And He Is Close To Getting Rid Of Blurry. He Wants To Be Known By God And Wants God To Notice Him.He Is Weak And Beaten Down Through Out This Battle With Blurry.He Will Slip Away Into The Sound Of Gods Soothing Words That Help Him Through This Battle.The Ghost (Figure Of God) Is Close To Him And Helping Him.God Is Underneath Him But He Is Inside Out.He Has Two Faces And He Say's "Blurry's The One I'm Not." Means He Has Two Faces And Is Getting Rid Of Blurry. When Tyler Sings "Don't Let Me Be Gone." Is Him Speaking To God And Saying Don't Let Me Die Now.

    i think this song is a plea for help. he's asking someone to help him and in the beginning he's accepted he's going to lose to his mind (blurryface) but he starts yelling louder and overcomes his thoughts

    "dont let me be gone, dont let me be gone (very weak sounding) then it gets very loud "DONT LET ME BE-" "DONT LET ME BE-"

    and the "i wanna be known by you." shows that he wants people to know his condition

    also back to dont let me be gone is also a plea for help, asking for some sort of way someone can help him overcome his own mind
