I'd like to think about her

And the way she used to love me

But I just can't live without her

'Cause her arms are not around me

And the season's getting later

And my body's getting colder


And the vespers ring and I'm all alone
Without my love beside me




She'd call me in the evenin'

And ask me to come over
She'd be standing by the window

With her hair down around her shoulder

We'd talk a while and then she'd smile

Then she'd lock the door

And she would sit beside me

And we would talk no more


The bells would ring at six o'clock



And she'd be in my arms

Her head upon my shoulder, gently resting
And then she'd wake and look at me

Not knowing I'd been watching
Kiss me softly, then drift off to sleep


She'd call me in the evenin'



And ask me to come over

She'd be standing by the window

With her hair down around her shoulder
We'd talk a while and then she'd smile


Then she'd lock the door


And she would sit beside me
And we would talk no more
