The vacant stare you now possess
Slumped upon my chair
Reminds me of the mannequin
Awaiting his new suit of clothes.
To help the young men on their way
And dress them well upon their day.
So they may please their lovely brides
As you once pleased
Before you died.
But now you won’t be easily found
Unless your love lives underground.
And I will miss her more than you
My cup when love was new.
She screams and runs now through the door
And sadness sends her to the floor.
She gazes up into your eyes
And wonders where your spirit flies.
I’m here behind you
Won’t you see?
Your solemn beauty.
The chains are gone
The pain has left
Yet I am now
Without you now I am no one
There is no place under the sun
To be a home when you’re away
And so I’ll wait for you each day.
Just sit right here upon this sill
And watch the days pass by until
One day you join me and we fly
Away from here
