lyrics

She was on the fire side at sundown
Told me she was not herself in my town
Her eyes glowed all orange and red
Of fairy tales for which she dearly longed

Through the winter in her heart, she left me
Said that she could see the cloth unraveling
Said she was moving on
And taking with her all she’d given away

I am on my head now
There’s sorrow in my chest
I’m looking for a way
I’d have given you your best
But I have won no trophy
I have passed no test

And you’re gone, you’re gone, you’re gone, ya you are gone

She was on the pendulum and wondering
‘Bout the pace her tired heart was keeping
So I kissed her on her cheek
And washed her feet before she took her leave

I am on my head now
There’s sorrow in my chest
I’m looking for a way
I’d have given you your best
But I have won no trophy
I have passed no test

And you’re gone, you’re gone, you’re gone, ya you are gone
