Lyrics

We met when hope was oh so young
I took you from that drunken bum
And held you like some father
And we both mourned for each other
Oh yes, we were so full of hope than that you see
You'd be a dancer, and a singer me
You danced your dance and my sweet song was sung

I was wreckless, you were free
I took you 'round the world with me
So holy together
No devils could tear us apart
The lights were bright on Portland Street
And with the future at our feet
We held onto each other
But somewhere lost your way

So long, my lover
It's over
So long, my lover
It's over
So long, my lover
It's over

Who was that boy that you did see
Did having him bring you closer to me?
So blindly you swung from the hook our love hung from
But retribution does come soon
Two lovers in a hotel room
You danced your dance, and my sweet song was sung

So long, my lover
It's over
So long, my lover
It's over
So long, my lover
It's over

Fragile wings in a silver castle
And love that's wrought too hard and fast
I guess that's how it came to be
My dancing girl skipped away from me
I was blind, I could not see
The mirror cracked in front of me
Darling girl, please understand
There's no blood on your pretty hands

So long, my lover
It's over
So long, my lover
It's over
So long, my lover
So long, my lover
It's over
So long, my lover
It's over
So long, my lover
It's over
