lyrics

I have written in my diary
So you’ll know just what became of me
My loneliness and desperation will be the stuff of history

You have wandered off to fight the war
And misdirect the call of canons roar
You said to lead a man’s life, you must do more

And I hate you for it.

You have sent no words to reach my ears
For what is now so many silent years
No whisper on the wind, no twinkle of the stars to calm my fears

I have worked my fingers down to bone
To make for us a happy home
And now my soft and secret heart has hardened into stone

And I hate you for it.

Last night I dreamed that you came back to me
And we lived on and on so happily
Before I woke you said to me:
“darling, this will never be.”

And I loved you for that.
