What did you do when you saw that I'd gone
did you stand very still and did tears come falling?

O you want that picture don't you darling
of poor little me standing there bawling?
well it's true that I cried
but then I went outside
and I stood very still in the night
and I looked at the sky
and knew someday I'd die
and then everything would be all right

it's all right
and everything comes
down to this
that everything there ever was
or will be
is all there is

Where did you go once you'd wrote me that note
was a weight lifted off of your shoulders did you fly?

O you want that picture, don't you darling
of heartless cold me
flying not falling?
well, it's true that I soared
but then I went outdoors
and I stood very still in the night
and I looked at the sky
and knew someday I'd die
and then everything would be all right

it's all right
and everything comes
down to this
that everything there ever was
or will be
is all there is
