took a walk, in the wind, down by the harbour
took a mouthful of sand in when we laughed
rode a bike, or a horse, I don't quite remember
but we laughed

took a trip, to the city, one friendly Autumn
took a mouthful of wine in when we breathed
holding hands, on the bridge, over the river
catching the leaves

i'm sorry that you flew so far away

felt your breath, on my neck, your hands in my pockets
felt your skin next to mine whenever we slept
and i've tried to forget all my misjudgements
but you wept

and we climbed, once again, those tremendous mountains
and we forded the rivers we crossed
while we hiked, over hills and through darkened forests
we got lost

i'm sorry that you flew so far away

and I found, an old list, you'd written for christmas
when you wandered the streets calling my name
and I hope that you got all that you asked for
