I finally got my own place
Along the uppity, upper Amsterdamns
It was there by chance I saw your face
And I still don't understand

Hey - why I returned for a second show
(this year's so blue)
Hey - returned to turning stones over me and you


Why me
Why you
Why here
Why did you have to go
Such silly questions
Although still I'd love to know
Oh why - won't someone tell me please? Why?
Who painted this past year blue?

Strange and faint, these reveries
Like windows where I drew your name
Now every corner hides your shadow
About to find me waiting in vain

Hey - have I returned for a second show
(this year's so blue)
Hey - was it you or me who made this past year blue?


Dashed against the stones
The terrain I tread
Though not yet bled you
From my veins
No, tomorrow's not so far away

So far, so far away
It's not so far
So far away
