You Are Gone

Tell no one, come September.
Tell no one, come the fall.
Tell no one, come September.
You are gone. You are gone.

Once we loved like forever.
Once we touched tenderly.
A few nights to remember.
Now you're gone. Now you're gone.

Now the nights are so empty.
Now the nights are so cold.
Once we loved like forever.
Now you're gone. Now you're gone.

A stark, cold emptiness replaced the heat
of the nights that we held close together.
I toss and I turn until the sky might
come alight again.
Wondering why my life goes on.
For now you're gone.

I rise, I walk, I talk, I spin.
No sparkle in the eye, I grin.
Wondering why what could have been
forever must be gone.

Oh angel, falling down through me.
I held you once, now you are free.
The afterglow melts into deep
and unforgiving eyes.

Little child of our loving.
Little child of the light.
Wondering where daddy's hiding
He is gone. He is gone.

Don't you cry, little darlin'.
Don't you cry, mamma's here.
She will hold you forever.
Now he's gone. Now he's gone.

Once we loved like forever.
Once we touched tenderly.
Now the snow covers over
everything, everything.

Will the rose bloom in springtime?
Will the grass turn pure green?
Will I live on forever?
Never seen. Never seen.

I can't help but remember
those long walks in the sun.
Now the leaves of September
drifting down, drifting down.

And the rain is my sorrow
and the wind is my sigh
as I feel all that mattered
falling down, falling down.

Tell no one, it's September.
Tell no one, of our fall.
Tell no one, it's September.
You are gone. You are gone.
