Adeline's gone

Word this morning gives me a shiver
Adeline’s gone, Adeline’s gone
Roses, rings, now I’ll never give her
Adeline’s gone, Adeline’s gone
All our dreams have been shattered
Who could carry on?
And what I’d change, well that doesn’t matter
Adeline’s gone, Adeline’s gone

In a moment’s breath, she’s slipped from my fingers
Adeline’s gone, Adeline’s gone
And all that’s left is a longing that lingers
Adeline’s gone, Adeline’s gone
If only I could now take her
Somewhere beyond this dawn
But from this sleep, ain’t nothing can wake her
Adeline’s gone, Adeline’s gone

I can’t help from crying
All these tears for two
All our heroes are dead or dying
And I don’t know what to do

Cold hard earth, it don’t really suit her
Adeline’s gone, Adeline’s gone
And separate nights are our only future
Adeline’s gone, Adeline’s gone
Judgment has been delivered
But it’s a sorrowful song
Take my sins, cast them into the river
Adeline’s gone, Adeline’s gone
