Lyrics (unofficial)

[rev. Aug. 19, 2013]

One night I saw all this
The ship that drifted in
And from that afternoon you changed (you changed)
Some fallen leaves were in the drive
A stranger's voice above the wind
The difference was the color of Lorraine

Said that mourning almost tasted blue
Oh Fraulein, that was you

Your phone would ring and ring and ring
The shadows on the beat
A car abandoned long before, when I was free
A message crumpled said something
Yet the language was unknown
Are old mistakes forgotten just like me

Said that mourning almost tasted blue
Oh Fraulein, that was you

She said she's leaving with the crowds
She wants to throw this all away
She said I'm thinking this out loud
But that's what I thought you'd say

One night I saw all this
The man who paid the bill
A glance along the noise
Hey baby that's our song
The seagulls all flew away
And when I turned to ask you where
And when I turned to ask you why why why why why
You've gone

Said that mourning almost tasted blue
Oh Fraulein, that was you
