If you are lost
If you aren't long for this world
Adeline
Tell me lies, tell me lies
How one by one
They marched you down into the sea
And their torch lights shined
In their eyes, in their eyes

And you won't even give us a sign
Adeline
Adeline

The rain falls down
The rain still follows you around
Magdalene
Run away, run away
'Cause the longer that you stay
It gets harder still to move
And I fall every time
When you say, when you say

I love you that much harder every day
But you never say what you mean
And you're only seventeen
Magdalene
Magdalene

You're too young to remember
A love, desperate and tender
And all the wild horses in the world
Can't pull you away
And all the best intentions in the world
Can't make you stay

If you are lost
If you aren't long for this world
Adeline
Tell me lies, tell me lies

And you won't even give us a sign
How long you're gonna make us stand in line
Waiting on a wink of your eye
Or a valentine
Adeline
Oh, Adeline
