I've been waiting here for her for my sentence
And I haven't said a word of anger here
But I didn't see her running 'til it hit me
She's been living right behind me all these years

And I never found an ending to my suffering
She opened every door I should have closed
With the mercy of a hundred hungry animals
Sorrow she shows dressed in ribbons and bows

So long my baby
I know it I know
So long my baby
I know it I know
Can't we fall apart together tonight

And I studied every wrinkle on the pillow at my head
And sucked the sunken breath from deep within
She carved into the body of my memory and said
Let not your sorrows die though while in bed

And I'm living with her now inside her temple
She moves enough to let my patience grow
And then I hear the ringing in the tower
Sorrow she shows dressed in ribbons and bows

So long my baby
I know it I know
So long my baby
I know it I know
Can't we fall apart together tonight

So long my baby
I know it I know
So long my baby
I know it I know
Can't we fall apart together tonight
Can't we fall apart together
