I've been waiting here many years

And now I'm half dead

But I'll stay waiting until you return

Until you come back like you said


You kissed me when you went

Cheeks red and round with life

How was I supposed to know

What, on the fields of war, you'd sacrifice?


I bit my tongue

So I didn't call you back

I didn't know the next time we met

I'd be all in black


You sent a kiss to me from the carriage

Your love flew through the air

I opened my mouth to cry out

And the kiss is still trapped there
