Did you fall again
Off the edge of the world
Were you wrestling lions
Or diving for pearls

I’ve always pictured you
As the fearless kind
Laying waste to armies
With a sword and a smile

If you come around this way
If you come around this way
Say hello

Twenty years ago
A girl fell to your charms
Then watched you sail away
A babe in her arms

I’ve waited all this time to make
My acquaintance with you
All hope of your return
Long faded from view

But if you come around this way
If you come around this way
Say hello

Every time you kiss your child goodnight
Are you reminded of the lullaby
You used to sing to soothe the heart you’d chosen to deny

If you come around this way
If you come then please don’t stay

Now the sun won’t show
And the rain comes slow
But the trees they know

And the sky hits the ground
Like a storm without a sound
But the blood cries aloud

Why did you go away
Why couldn’t you stay
Did the miles help you to erase
The hurt, the guilt, the shame you couldn’t bear to face
Why did you go away
