When you go, you leave me like a boxer in the ring
Who doesn’t know that he’s too old to win
And when you go, I’m left like an actor on the stage
Who doesn’t know that he’s too old to act his age

Your heavy horses run through my stream
Unbridled in the moonlight, they break the back of winter

And when you go, I’m left like a widow of the war
Who sits and waits for no one at the door
And when you go, I’m left like a junkie on the floor
Who prays to be invisible so she can’t be ignored

Your heavy horses run through my stream
Unbridled in the moonlight, they break the back of winter

Be kind to me, I want to ease into this heartache tonight
Every great love passes and so must time
I have the wisdom of the staircase tonight
It only takes a pinhole to upset the dark
You donate your time but I donate my heart
