Now you've been gone for a long time
Run off with my heart into the night
Once I'd have thought that you'd never let me go
Now I'm alone after all

I've sat for hours at my table
Poring over maps about our stars

All they would say is that you were always here
Now like a ghost you've disappeared

Strange how you came like a reed up from the sea
Up from the blood in my veins

Now that the cold and the silence
That you left behind you are my friends

I wonder why you padlocked up my heart
If you never meant to return

Now you've been gone for a long time
Run off with my heart into the night
Once I'd have thought that you'd never let me go
Now I'm alone after all
