"Isobel" as written by Rollo Armstrong and Dido Armstrong....
I thought it was funny when you missed the train
When I rang you at home they said you left yesterday
I thought it was strange when your car was found
By the tree in Ennis where we used to hang around

Dear Isobel
I hope you're well and what you've done is right
Oh it's been such hell
I wish you well I hope you're safe tonight

It's been a long day coming and long will it last
When it's last day leaving, and I'm helping it pass by loving you more

And who he would become, all the things he'd have done
Would he have loved you, and not let you down
And would he be stronger than his father
Don't punish yourself, leave it well alone

Dear Isobel
I hope you're well and what you've done is right
Oh it's been such hell
I wish you well I hope you're safe tonight

It's been a long day coming and long will it last
When it's last day leaving, and I'm helping it pass by loving you more

It's been a long day coming and long will it last
When it's last day leaving, and I'm helping it pass by loving, loving you more.

    General CommentYou know... I always thought that the way she phrased two of the lines was interesting.

    "By the tree in Ennis where we used to hang around"

    The word 'hang' has a kind of ominous meaning to me. Like, maybe there's a reason that specific word was chosen instead of something else. Maybe it has a double meaning & Isobel hung herself?
    Just my two cents.
