The dead cannot come back

Art by Katherine

When once we walked with love along our track
Now I wander round an unknown plain
For you are gone and never can come back

There is no excitement, all seems flat
Yet on the earth it seems I must remain
When once we walked with love along our track

The death of lovers gives a mighty smack
The heart bursts open, wounded with its shame
For you are lost and never will come back

I hear your voice but see my home is wrecked
Only God can heal the cripples maimed
Oh,once we walked with love along our track

I wonder who the judge is, who inspects
Who will win and who will take the blame
For you are lost and never will come back

Like the unweaned babe we howl in pain
We bite our lips till blood runs down and stains
When once we walked with joy along our track
Now you are dead and I still feel the lack
