UIG Lyrics Rewritten

There's been a lot of complaining about the simplicity and how cliché the lyrics to Until It's Gone are, so I thought I'd try and rewrite the lyrics so they seem more powerful and striking.

 

This took me about 20 minutes to do, and at 12:40am, too, so there's probably a lot I can fix. What do you guys think?

 

UIG Rewrite

 

I watched as the fire burned

A scarlet, shining glow

I've heard these words a thousand times

But now I know

 

That you don't know what you've got

Oh, the battles to be fought

No, you don't know what you've got

Until it's gone

Until it's gone

Until it's gone

 

I thought I saved you from your Hell

I was lost in your soul

Then your fire made me realize

That I was wrong

'Cause fighting for our love implies

Fighting it alone

And when you finally see the light

You've let go

 

'Cause you don't know what you've got

Until it's gone

Until it's gone

Until it's gone

 

Until it's gone

This bloody war

You saved yourself

To destroy it all

And now it's gone

 

'Cause you don't know what

you've got

Oh, you've got to regain your thoughts

No, you can't go cry for help

It's your battle to be fought

No, you don't know what you've got

'Til it's gone

'Til it's gone

Now it's gone

Hi. Im a new member to this site. I liked what you wrote here. When I listen to the song, however, I sort of feel like the focus is like the realization of the antagonist on Numb. Smothering, but then realizing that you have to let go. Your lyrics are good, but they changed the meaning for me.
