when you go away, there's nothing i can say
i'm alone again

at the end of day, the sunlight slips away
in the dark again

i opened up so i could know all i could know
but i didn't know that i could go so far from home

i was simple, safe and sane, but something wicked this way came
and i can't live with this
now i know why ignorance is bliss

i opened eyes so i could see all i could see
but i didn't see that i could be so far from me
and you

falling like the rain on the far, dim, distant plain
sleeping in our beds, the rain falling in our heads

we're all alone with this
