I thought it was funny when you missed the train
When I rang you at home they said you'd left yesterday
I thought it was strange when your car was found
By the tree in Ennis where we used to hang around
Dear Isobel, I hope you're well and what you've done is right
Oh it's been such hell, I wish you well, I hope you're safe tonight
It's been a long day coming and long will it last
When it's last day leaving, and I'm helping it pass
By loving you more
And who would he become, all the things he'd have done
Would he loved you and not let you down
And would he be stronger than his father
Don't punish yourself, leave it well alone
Dear Isobel, I hope you're well and what you've done is right
Oh it's been such hell, I wish you well, I hope you're safe tonight
It's been a long day coming and long will it last
When it's last day leaving, and I'm helping it pass
By loving you more
