They Have Departed
They Are Departed
Here I sit, I'm here alone-
With Sorrow that I've always known-
we won the battle, lost the war-
My closest friends draw breath no more.
This place is where we laughed and sang-
Defiant when the church bells rang-
This run-down place is barely stable-
And here I sit at our old table.
Next to the window in the back-
Of this old decaying shack-
Here we talked about tomorrow-
And now all left of us is Sorrow.
We fought to win our right to Dawn-
Now all my friends are dead and gone-
Inside, outside, all the same-
The Light we fought for never came.
The Gods just wouldn't let me die-
And join my friends up in the sky-
I'm forced to live, but broken-hearted-
My friends are dead, they have departed.
