Dust falls on the empty halls of my old school
Where the memories fade like the casualty a
Forgotten fool
Now wide-eyed has become the blind
Unspoken rule
Deeper only deep is now the word
The lesson's not the answer you once heard
[Chorus]
Don't turn your back on me
Don't ever let me down
She said I picked you up each time
Before you hit the ground
Your selfish face is now erased
When someone mentions you
And the darkness that you left
Has all but stepped aside
Will disappearing in clouds the sun arrives
Within a mile of home
Within a mile of home
Worry o my worry has it been that long
The whistle keeps on blowin but the tunes
Long gone
His empty frame cannot explain there's
Nothing left inside
So sing to me a song from yesterday
When laughter filled the tears that we
Now make
(Chorus)
So sing to me, sing me a song, a song
From yesterday
And when the laughter turned drank these tears before
The promises that now slip away
Don't turn your back on me
Don't turn your back on me
Don't ever let me down
We are within a mile
We are within a mile
Within a mile of home
