I met her in the mountains
Though I lived down by the sea
And now it seems these mountains
Are just way too high for me

Goodbye Lorraine
Goodbye Lorraine
Let me explain

She said, "It will be witches
Then there must be nakedness"
I said, "You have no heart until
That aching fills your chest"

Goodbye Lorraine
Goodbye Lorraine
Let me explain

Just why I'm leaving
I don't know what for
But I can't explain it anymore

We help hands in the temple
But we had no wedding day
Now she sends me perfumed letters
And I throw them all away

Goodbye Lorraine
Goodbye Lorraine
Let me explain

A friend showed me a picture
From the 1970's
Now I'm wondering where you are tonight
And I'm singing woe is me

Goodbye Lorraine
Goodbye Lorraine
Let me explain

Just why I'm leaving
I don't know what for
Well, I can't explain it anymore
