lyrics

I've gone and left my money for a dram glass in my hand
My baby's gone and she won't be back again
I've seen cut-off every means found to an end
With my house burning in the wind

But I've lost more than this my friend
I've lost my means to fix amends

Gone and left Nantucket for a bag of broken dreams
My baby's gone and she won't be back it seems
I know, I know... I'm lucky, I have all that I need
And Jesus' never been too bad to me

But I want more than Galilee
I want the means to find my baby

'Cause what she was to me, was always new and free
But I can't hear her anymore, hear her coming thru the door
Calling "lover" but what else for... but to love

I've gone and sold my future for a bottle full of Haight
My baby's gone and I have not since been straight
I know, I'm wrong, I've gone too long on this destructive way
But now I'm all lost and have nothing left to say

But if you see her say, "goodbye"
Tell her i miss my pretty baby

'Cause what you meant to me, was always new and free
But your fall-time feathers have all flown
To the Promised Land, your desert home

It's there my heart lies on the sand
In your Promised Land...

But if I say, "I love you", I know it wouldn't mean a thing
I never said, "I love you", oh, no, you never meant a thing
'Cause you're never coming back again - my dear friend
You're never coming back again, I've seen it again - my friend

Another song come to an end.
