Young In The Light

This is an absence I understand

It's going away like a tube inside

And I go from concrete to the Strand

Still the same place, just more people have lied

------------

This is a leaving that's still a part of me

I can pick up the pieces as they fall behind

I know soon I won't be able to see

Departure is fast and the door isn't too wide

------------

This is something I know

You are someone now go

Go, you know it's right

You still look so young in the light

------------

This absence I understand

Is more that what I really mean

People who want to get never really can

All this time makes them not too keen

------------

This leaving does get to me

These messages just don't get through

Just a piece of truth that helps me see

And may just help me reach my due

------------

This is something I know

You are someone now go

Go, you know it's right

You still look so young in the light
