V1:

The light is dwindling down

Shading this haunted town

The spectre walks into the lake

The place where he once drowned

He doesn't hear you calling

He doesn't see you bawling

The only thing he knows

Is that he'll always keep on falling

C:

Just walk away

You can't save him now

You want to leave

But don't know how

Some other day

He might reach for you

Until then

There's nothing you can do

V2:

The water's trickling down

Flooding this helpless town

The specter walks out from the lake

The place where he once drowned

He doesn't care you're calling

He doesn't care you're bawling

The only thing he cares about

Is that he must stop falling

C:

Just walk away

You can't save him now

You want to leave

But you don't know how

Some other day

He might reach for you

Until then

There's nothing you can do

B:

Sometimes it's hard to let go

Those we all love and know

You think your heart will die

It won't grow

Just give it time

To heal slow, so

C:

Just walk away

You can't save him now

You can't leave your son

You don't know how

Some foggy night

He might reach for you

Until then

There's nothing you can do
