Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
I dug a single seed into the ground, I hope it grows, grows
In a year or two if you're around, you'll see a rose, rose
Pack me up and keep me hidden somewhere, that you can find me
On a train to Paris going nowhere, draw the bridge behind me

[Chorus]
Don't be gone too long, too long
Cause you won't be there to love me when you're gone
Don't be gone too long, too long
Tell me who's gonna love me when you're gone?
When you're, when you're gone
When you're gone

[Verse 2]
Golden leaves are dancing on the ground, it's getting cold, cold
Safe from time, we'll be forever young, never old, old
See a ball of fire out in space, zooming up behind me
All the wonder written on your face, was there inside me

[Chorus]
Don't be gone too long, too long
Cause you won't be there to love me when you're gone
Don't be gone too long, too long
Tell me who's gonna love me when you're gone?
When you're, when you're gone
When you're gone

[Bridge]
Bring it back to me, bring it back to me, is it really over?
Bring it back to me, bring it back to me, is it over?
Bring it back to me, bring it back to me
Is it really over?
Bring it back to me, bring it back to me, is it really over?
Bring it back to me, bring it back to me, is it over?
Bring it back to me, bring it back to me
Is it really over?

[Chorus]
Don't be gone too long, too long
Cause you won't be there to love me when you're gone
Don't be gone too long, too long
Tell me who's gonna love me when you're gone?
Don't be gone too long, too long
Cause you won't be there to love me when you're gone
Don't be gone too long, too long
Tell me who's gonna love me when you're gone?
