You

You.     (in DADGAD
Tuning)

Would you be there
if I came to see
you, Lay flowers on
your grave?
Would you be there
if I came to see
you, with all the
love I now save?
Would you be there
if I came to see
you, full of
memories gone by?
Would you be there
if I came to see
you, should I stand
there and cry?

When you came in,
storm clouds had
gathered,
When you came in, my
world was complete,
When you came in,
you filled me with
wonder,
When you came in,
laid flowers at my
feet.

Why you parted, from
the world outside my
window,
Why you parted, hurt
me deep inside,
Why you parted, 
darkest nights' long
shadow,
Why you parted,  the
night you died.

Where are you now,
when I call out your
name?
Where are you now,
in a star far up
high?
Where are you now,
with anguish and
pain?
Where are you now,
in the trees I pass
by?

Will you wait for
me, in the place
you've now gone?
Will you wait for
me, with arms tender
wide?
Will you wait for
me, so that I may
stay strong?
Will you wait for
me, that I may be;
at your side?

Would you be there
if I came to see
you, Lay flowers on
your grave?
Would you be there
if I came to see
you, with all the
love I now save?
Would you be there
if I came to see
you, full of
memories gone by?
Would you be there
if I came to see
you, should I stand
there and say
goodbye?
