about

A woman I knew grew up caring for her alcoholic mother and I wondered what her mother might have felt when she sobered one day to find her daughter gone.

lyrics

There is something you lost
Though I can’t see the meaning
There was someone you trusted
And someone betrayed you

There was someone you talked to in the dark
In your corner
Through the window you let yourself fly

And you flew, you flew, you flew away
And you flew, you flew, you flew away
And you flew, you flew, you flew away
And you flew, you flew, you flew away

There was distance between us
And I thought I could help you
But my questions just seemed
To drive you away

And you found a new home there in the dark
Where you whisper
Like a child beaten down by her god

So you flew, you flew, you flew away
So you flew, you flew, you flew away
So you flew, you flew, you flew away
So you flew, you flew, you flew away

And how do I get your soul back?
Back from the place where you’ve gone
And how do I get your soul back?
Back from the place where you’ve gone

Is it my fault that you are this way?
Is it my fault that you ran away?
Is it my fault that you learned to hate?
Yes, it’s my fault that you’ll never stay

I could be there to talk to in the dark
In your secrets
I could win your heart back if you try

But you flew, you flew, you flew away
But you flew, you flew, you flew away
But you flew, you flew, you flew away
But you flew, you flew, you flew away

And I’ll never get your soul back
Back from the place where you’ve gone
And I’ll never get your soul back
Back from the place where you’ve gone

‘Cause your soul, it flew, it flew away
‘Cause your soul, it flew, it flew away
‘Cause your soul, it flew, it flew away
‘Cause your soul, it flew, it flew away

And all I have left here is a grave
