When I left you at the altar
It wasn't meant to be the end
I never saw you as an angel
You were not one to pretend
I didn't think it would be over
A battle fought and won
I came back to say I'm sorry
But you'd already gone

Amidst the ashes of acacia
In the snowstorm of my grief
In the prison of self hatred
And on the sleepless sheet
Through the Lady Chapel windows
And the palest Winter Sun
I came back to say I love you
But you'd already gone

I thought I saw you in the lobby
I thought I saw you in the hall
I thought I saw you on a busy street
And several times I called
I should've sorted out my problems
Instead of hanging on
I came back to say I love you
But you'd already gone
