Colton Dixon, "Never Gone" Music Video / Behind the Scenes of the 'Idol' Star's First Video / Dixon: "I'm Gonna Cry When I See It" / "Never Gone" Song Lyrics

Though he is more than a year removed from his American Idol days, Colton Dixon is finally working on the music video for his number one single "Never Gone".

Choosing an abandoned warehouse in Nashville, director Eric Walsh claims the music video has a "Tim Burton industrial feel to it."

Though this is Dixon's first music video, he says his days on Idol gave him the tools to be comfortable in the spotlight.

"Idol prepared us for a lot of this. We were always on camera, so they taught us how to look past a camera to those watching. I am excited that I'm finally getting to use those tools."

The outspoken Christian artist says they didn't want to pick a concept straight from the Bible on purpose but inevitably found one.

"We didn't want to get too specific. But landed on the prodigal son story."

Though Colton Dixon has come a long way since competing on singing reality show, he admits his passion for the project still makes him emotional.

"I am going to cry when I watch it. I was getting choked up watching actors yesterday" says Colton, who is eager to have the video released. Dixon thinks the video is the final piece in the interpretation puzzle.

The Murfreesboro native has been going nonstop since finishing seventh on Idol Season 11. Colton Dixon has released a couple singles and a debut album, A Messenger.  

Stay tuned for the release of Colton Dixon's first music video "Never Gone" due out in about a month.

Colton Dixon "Never Gone" Lyrics

Lights off, a shot in the dark
We get lost when we're playing a part
We lay blame like we know what's best
It's a shame...

We break when we fall too hard
Lose faith when we're torn apart
Don't say you're too far gone
It's a shame
It's a shame

I'm still standing here
No I didn't disappear
Now the lights are on
See I was never gone
I let go of your hand
To help you understand
With you all along
Oh, I was never gone

There's space between our lives
Hard to face, but I know we try
To revive, bring it back to life
Don't walk away
Don't walk away

I never ever left you
Never ever left you, no.
He said I never ever left you
Never ever left you, no.
Jesus never ever left you
Never ever left you, no.
He sees us, even in the darkness
Now you know you're not alone.
