Lyrics

As the sun shines down on the land
So her heart is crying for love
And there is no one there
No one to hear her voice
And she will sleep alone again tonight

Now the moon is high in the sky
In her room she calls out his name
But he is somewhere else
somewhere she cannot see
Oh and the night is dark between them now
My god, my god - why did he go away?

Now the sun shines on a new town
With a smile, he gets off the train
He lights a cigarette
leans back to see the sky
Oh and he thinks how much better off he is
without her hanging round
Let's do it

The day is passing by him
and he has nowhere to stay
At a lonely bar room table
his mind goes back to yesterday
To the girl who's dead and buried
but her face lives in his eyes
He must forget that face forever
make the future start tonight
Forget her

But the meal he eats is dead flesh
There is cancer in his cigarettes
And the drinks won't do a thing for him
but revive some stupid memories
Then a hairstyle that reminds him
makes him run into the night
Where the moon hangs high above him now
The same moon that she's praying on tonight
But the wind catches their words
and the moon swallows them whole

Now the moon is high in the sky
In her room she calls out his name
The night is cold and dark
and she is all alone
The bed is empty now
Her body screams for love
She wants to be with him
but he's so far away
Oh and the night is dark between them now
My god, my god - why did he go away?

Notes

Steven Havenhand: "Separations was originally called Eastern Eurodisco & that was a barebones chord progression (two chords as I remember) which the band put the flesh on."
