Farewell

Where were you
When I felt useless and worn so thin
When my heart beat the cadence
Of a funeral march
Were you out in the moonlight
with him
Where we’re you
when my spirit
Was broken
and I called and called out for you
I said I’m coming home
But you’d burned it to the ground singing sorry boy
There’s nothing here for you

Well I’m sorry girl
But I’m not the man
To sit around and cry over you
So farewell
Bid farewell darling girl
Bid farewell to the boy
who loved you true

I guess I knew
Oh yes from miles off
I could see it coming
No I wasn’t wrong
When I said it won’t be long
Before that girl’d be leaving me alone
Yes it’s true oh lord it’s true
But the thought of the loss
was too dear
I knew it would strike me down
And that our love was dying out
But I couldn’t face the knowledge
of my years

Well I’m sorry girl
But I’m not the man
To sit around and cry over you
So farewell
Bid farewell darling girl
Bid farewell to the boy
who loved you true
