Lyrics:

Where did you go, dear, the light through your window
Has revealed your absence to me
I could come with you, a friend for the journey
I've been told that I make good company

If you were afraid that time would close in on you
And make you pay for all your wrong deeds
I've gotta say that running helps nothing
And I'd rather you stay here with me

Your lips and hardships, Chamomile, rose hips
We've written our own history
But I always thought, dear, that you'd always be here
Funny how one night can un-write everything

If something has changed to make you feel different
If we just weren't destined to be
Shouldn't I feel the same alone in my kitchen
But I'd rather you be here with me

The garden needs tending, the roof requires mending
I've been putting them off since you left
I wrote you three letters, sent by the river
Because no one here knows your address

So come back and stay, things don't have to be
The way that they all used to be
And I'll stay awake, 'cause sleeping seems worthless
If you're not lying here next to me

Where did you go, dear, the light through your window
Has revealed your absence to me
I could come with you, a friend for the journey
I've been told that I make good company
