I am the past and I go off alone
The evening shadows settle in
I close the windows, draw the curtains tight
Still silver moonbeams slither in

How did it end up here?
How did it go so far away?
How do you give up completely on a friend?
It's hardest at midnight, Elvie,
In a room so grey and cold
Time to be gone again,
This time alone.

Staring silent at the calm, sad moon
The streetlights glistening with rain
I should have known that I could only make you sad
I won't be back this way again

How did it end up here?
How did it go so far away?
How do you give up completely on a friend?
It's hardest at midnight, Elvie,
In a room so grey and cold
Time to be gone again,
This time alone.

Someplace in dreams we all awaken
Someday everything grows clear
Tonight's a night when all the angels cry
I was a fool to get so near

How did it end up here?
How did it go so far away?
How do you give up completely on a friend?
It's hardest at midnight, Elvie,
In a room so grey and cold
Time to be gone again,
Time to be old.
