This lonely, lonely home
So lonely since you went and left
Leaving me bereft
Every room so baron and bear
Leaving me naked and bare
What happened, what happened?
I thought our love was everlasting
Eternal, eternally
You were my breath of life
Shining a light of hope
Now I am so, so alone
Your light shining for me
Now and now I am lost
And now you are free, free!
What can it be for you to leave?
You packed your bags
And all I can do is sag, sag
Drooping my head, head
Sitting here glaring, staring
Out of this grim, grim room
Where there is too much space
Time and space
Oh when I first saw you
Oh the awakening, day breaking
The sun glistening
The stars shining
The moon so glittering
Where we had no beginning or end
Thoughts running through this mind
Staring out of this window
The shattered garden you so loved
The weeds have taken control
Uninhabited, abandoned
Desolate, deserted
I cannot touch it!
Reach out to it
Oh babe I’m screaming, crying
It’s driving me insane
Oh babe those days have gone
How can I go on, on and on?
You will always be in my heart
Even though you have departed
Some days are too hard to bear
Some days are too hard to breathe
Some days are too hard to live
You will always be here
You’re here and so is your spirit
That spirit so divine
Your love is still felt here
I’m not begging you
But please come home
Where I’m longing to hold onto you
Hold you, hold you so tight
With all my might
I need you!
Come home to my heart
You were all my dreams come true
Through and through
So why oh why throw it all away?
Come back and talk to me
Tell me, tell me
Where it all went wrong
Babe oh babe I miss you
This home is so lost and alone
Without you!
We need you!
You’re still in my dreams
Not nightmares
Darling sweetheart
We just don’t need to be this wind apart
The days are endless
The nights sleepless
The clock never stops
Endless ticking and clicking
Did you know, do you know
That you are my eternal love
Lover, lover
Friend, friend
Can we make it right?
I will always believe we were meant to be
Can we believe it still?
Oh my sweet babe
Are you reading this?
Then let me know
