Spoken like a handshake
firmer than a vow
when I said I love you
it was for longer than right now

But I see that my voice had failed me
no longer did I have words
for you went away yesterday
and i have nothing to look towards

Alone, lonesome, forever a single man
though other women lay beside me
none of them can understand

I lost you to an Autumn wind
you left me for an empty thought
I'll never truly love again
because I'm bound by the love my heart never forgot.
