[Verse 1]
Maybe you're right
I'm no good
Got a heart made of glass and a head made of wood
Let me make it clear
When I'm gone, I'm gone
The night's just the night and there's no coming dawn

[Chorus]
When shall I return?
I confess I don't know
What's around the bend
What's left to unfold
I could promise you the moon brought down with a lasso
I need to stay but alas I must go

[Verse 2]
Back in the stark woods behind your old house
I buried something that'll leave you no doubt
Something to prove myself to you
Half is a lie
But the good part's true

[Chorus]
When shall I return?
I confess I don't know
What's around the bend
What's left to unfold
I could promise you the moon brought down with a lasso
I need to stay but alas I must go
Or maybe you should move on and I'll go it alone

[Verse 3]
Out in the barren field where we first met
Full of decay from a life in the red
Oaths that I broke
The money I spent
Couldn't make it work
Couldn't even make rent
All the people I forgot that I knew, that I met
Maybe my life will repay the debt

[Bridge]
I need to stay
I need to stay
I need to stay but alas I must go
I thought you wanted me to stay but you need me to go
I just want to say
Now I finally know

[Outro]
Alas, I must go
Alas, I must go
Alas, I must go
