One perfect day with you
Before you left me here alone
I'll never know where you have gone
Now all I see - is what you were to me
When you were just a girl
You didn't see that it could end
There always seemed to come another day
And then it falls apart, it only breaks your heart
It's nothing you can ever mend
Now spring has come again
I see you digging in the earth
The things you planted have taken root in me
The sky a pale blue, a soft and milky hue
The scented breeze has set me free
If you came back to me
I'd know exactly what to do
Get in a car and drive you home again
We'd spend the day, just like we used to do
I'd tell you that it never ends
I'd stay with you, tell you everything
Please tell me it will never end
