At the door, the day she chose to leave
The other half that couldn’t quite believe
Believe that she had found another love
When push came to shove, she’d really shove
Friendship after friendship
Voyage after voyage
Lost my way up mountain pass
Lost every game I’ve ever played

You watch as move you make
Your love away
You watch as right beneath
Your love away
There he stood still hours on
The position of the gun
Inside he was screaming
Inside orchestration

Can’t begin to count the ones I’ve lost
Couldn’t see the water for the docks
Couldn’t see my bed for stranger’s socks
But I’ve never lost a chicken to a fox
Your love away, your love away
Your love away, your love away
