Where Have You Gone, My Lonely Friend?

Sun on fhe River

Where have you gone, my lonely friend?
Why have you gone away?

I’m here by the fire, to tend my sick.
I’ll come on a better day.

Where are you hiding, my lovely friend?
Why I can’t I hear your song?

I’m singing at home, though my voice is tired
You’ll hear it, I’m sure, before long.

Why are you crying, my lovesome friend?
How can I calm your fears?

Just sing me a song, like we used to sing
In the time before all of these tears.

Why are you sleeping, my lovelost friend?
Why has your music gone still?

The sun’s on the river
The moon has gone down
And winter hangs hard on this homely town
The last leaf has fallen
Where no one could see
And so it has been between you and me
And so will it ever be.

Where have you gone, my lonely friend?
Why have you gone away?
