Welcome back and happy Friday, readers!

Today is the last day of our week about Phrasal verbs through songs. We are ending this week with Natalie Imbruglia's "Torn" and the phrasal verb TO GO ON

Definition: to happen. 

There's nothing where he used to lie
The conversation has run dry
That's what's going on
Nothing's fine, I'm torn. 

We often use this verb in the continuous (-ing) tense. 

Example 1: Hi! Good to see you! What's going on?

Example 2: What's going on with that job you applied for? Have you heard from the manager lately?

Example 3: Do you hear that noise outside? What's going on?

This phrasal verb is intransitive.

You can listen to this classic pop song here:

That's all for this week. We hope you enjoyed this mix of songs and the phrasal verbs that are in them. Have a wonderful weekend!
