lyrics

It's useless to deny I'm lonely
No books or records or light could comfort me
So, in darkness I will sleep
In silence I will dream

Cast a shadow on the Green Inn door
Take a breath of the ocean air
Drink with strangers to infinite love
Curse the sadness over there

What's that you said
Underneath the shady tree
In between the cool breeze
fifty feet away from the cemetery

People in this town don't know my name
They refer to me as the one who got away
But I thought I saw you there
With a flower in your hair

What's that you said...

It's useless to deny I'm lonely tonight
No books or records or light could comfort me
So, in darkness I will sleep
In silence I will dream
