They said she did not suffer at all
I did not know what to say
I just saw her stand outside the door
Get onto her bicycle and ride away

The leaves were still falling off the tree
I said thanks a lot
I'll see you next week
When you get back
To town
I'm not much of a lover but neither was she
We held each other just long enough to be
Considered an item by neighbors and friends
But promises were never made then
And it was never everything
But it was enough in the silence of morning
To lie and watch the colors turn

I'd like to cry but I'm a hard hearted man
I would promise anything to see her riding back again

Now it is cold much of the time
That tree is naked to the wind
And the snow falls around
Muting all the world
I cannot sleep without her here
I cannot sleep without her here
I cannot sleep without her here
So I lie and watch the stars slowly fade
