lyrics

I remember waking in the infancy of light
captured in the morning like an escapee of night
didn't hear you leaving not even the door
I was dying in a dream that I'd been living in before

where did you finally
ever so finely
where did you finally go?
say I should not worry
say it is not so
settling out there someplace you don't know

I keep the diamond side of you it's always in my mind
the shine upon my ring is like a memory refined
I don't pretend to understand the language of your ways
I guess someone does the damage and someone always pays

where did you finally
ever so finely
where did you finally go?
say I should not worry
say it is not so
settling out there someplace you don't know

don't know why but I don't know much
don't know why you don't keep in touch
day by day and I'm losing sleep
every night and feel so weak
somewhere over the telephone line
calling out for the fifteenth time
looks like you are way too far
gone gone gone

forever in a song it is that you aren't coming home
tell me I'm responsible for why it is you roam
they say there is a science in the creases of the hands
but I don't believe in anything that I don't understand

where did you finally
ever so finely
where did you finally go?
say I should not worry
say it is not so
settling out there someplace you don't know

don't know why but I don't know much
don't know why you don't keep in touch
day by day and I'm losing sleep
every night and feel so weak
somewhere over the telephone line
calling out for the fifteenth time
looks like you are way too far
gone gone gone
