Madeleine

 

And if you leave me tomorrow

You say it’s time for a change

Bring me back the words that I said to you

People say funny things like I love you.

And when you go for a ride

With the sun in your eyes

People turn around like Jesus’s back in town

Calling out your name my sweet Madelaine (Caroline)

You walk down the stairs with your green summer dress

Floating up and down at the pace of your breath

Nothing in this world is built to last but you.

And let the summertime breeze

make a knot out of your hair

it will be the last vision from the past

lately in the day you’ll disappear again

You walk down the stairs with your green summer dress

Floating up and down at the pace of your breath

nothing in this world is built to last but you.
