only when you're gone and away
only when you're gone
gonna need a hammer and nails to construct this bitter love song
this cruel testamented song
that rings out only when you're gone
only when you're gone
only when you're gone and away
only when you're gone

rude are the tongues of love that speak of mercy for us all and leave us only with a song
how it's a cold and hollow whisper
that consoles my body when you're gone
only when you're gone
only when you're gone and away
only when you're gone

and it's only when you're gone and away
your ghost runs through me in that special way
it's a nice old town, my hometown
come for the darkness in this prison cell
I love you long and I love you well

so bury me in the kitchen, bury me in the stones
bury me everywhere you go
in the shadows of the hallway
for we do no longer know what we can no longer hold
on days like these our heads fill up with smoke and our memories grow old

only when you're gone
only when you're gone and away
only when you're gone
gone away and gone away
