In the streetlight, your hair is the blackest sky
Through the snow, the cars silently pass us by.

When you smile, there's no reason to say goodbye
Don't say goodbye

I still have the last letter you left for me
All your t-shirts, your red and green pedigree

All the rest is sealed up behind memory
Fading away.

On the steps of the American Legion Hall,
You wait there alone, nobody left to call.

No one's there again
Spring, summer, winter, fall,

Terrible day

::vocalizing::

If I'd been there, I'd surely have stayed with you.

If I'd been there, I'd surely have prayed for you
If I'd been there, I'd surely have prayed for you

I want you to know

::vocalizing::
