At last, I sit upon the floor 

love, how can you do me this way 

After all, I have done to please

You leave me here, lonely to stay 

How can you do this to me, love 

I feel my heart die and decay 

Tears begin to run rivers clear

You leave me here, lonely to stay

My eyes cling tight, lashes knitted

My sorrows heavy, start to lay

Still is my heart on this cold night 

You leave me here, lonely to stay

My eyes begin to burn and sting 

The world, once colorful, now gray 

For how you leave me here alone 

You leave me here, lonely to stay 

A Flag will come, a coffin too 

Your belongings are not left a-stray  

A promise to return, broken 

You leave me here, lonely to stay
