A lady stands before an open window
Looking so far away
She can almost feel the southern winds blow
Gently touching his restless day

He turns from his window to me
Sad smile his apology
Sad eyes reaching to the door

Daylight loses to another evening
Still he spares me words goodbye
Sits alone beside me fighting his feelings
Struggles to speak but in the end can only cry

Suddenly it's so hard to find
