You're gone, you're gone
You're with me but you're gone
A feeling once so strong
Is now an old and forgotten song
But you don't sing so high and wild
You don't sing so high and wild

You're here, you're here
But your spirit disappeared
Off to some place that I don't know
Some human thing has squashed your soul
And I don't recognize you

I wish that this could turn our thing to bliss
And we could put our fears aside
And learn to laugh and be alive
And let our bodies be revived

But you can't
Say that you want me
What am I supposed to think that's the truth?
Well has it ever been easy for you?
To stand behind the things that I do

I wait for this to pass
For us to both say at last
On this dark and narrow path
The sun is shining and we remember what it is we're living for

I'm neither innocent or wise when you look me in the eyes
You might as well be blind
You might as well be blind
If you don't see me anymore

And you
You can't tell me that you love me
When I'm standing in your way
Well this would all be so much easier
If I had nothing more to say
Well this would all be so much easier
If I had nothing more to say
Oh, if only, if only, I had nothing more to say
Oh, if only, if only, I had nothing more to say

    General CommentI think the title of this song is a reference to a line from Leonard Cohen's "The Stranger Song" :

    'Like any dealer he was watching for the card
    That is so high and wild
    He'll never need to deal another
    He was just some Joseph looking for a manger'

    Not that I know what it all means.

    General CommentI love how dramatic that line is:

    You might as well be blind
    If you don't see me anymore

    This is one of her best songs. There's just such a pleasant and sincere flow to it.
