5. She Was Here

Stand alone at midnight
up on the crowded deck.
See the lights of Calais;
the hairs rise on my neck.
Somewhere darkness hides her,
the girl who holds my heart.
Love, don’t fail me on her trail,
but who knows where to start?

She was here,
I’m only hours behind her.
She was here,
but I was too late to find her.

Everywhere I wander,
the story’s just the same:
packed her bags and left here,
the day before I came.
Why does she still haunt me?
Why do I still stay?
In my dreams she always seems
to turn her face away.

She was here etc.

I’m the fool who told her
I didn’t want to know.
(I didn’t want her love.)
Now if I could hold her,
I’d never let her go.

On the day I saw her,
I tried to touch her hand.
Now at last I’d tell her
and make her understand.
She waits on the corner.
She turns round when I call.
In her eyes there’s no surprise:
it wasn’t her at all.

She was here etc.
