I got no reason but that I must
Maybe I feel like Ive been gathering dust
I must leave this harbour for the sea
I'm too young to settle down and make a home
But I don't know where I'm wanting to be
I just know I have to be there alone

Stole my time, all my time
Stole my time for you

Pale winter sun is beatin' the ground
Why'm I throwin' away the best thing that Ive found
My young heart's in tatters and Im sure
That it will be a long time healing
It's so hard to see what Im doing this for
When loneliness is all that Im feeling

Stole my time, all my time
Spend my time for you

Now the wind it is blowing, blowing leaves from the trees
Ive got no use knowing that with time it will ease
I don't know where I'm going, hope I get there soon
'Cause my soul is hollow as the sorrowful moon
Na, na, na, na

Now the wind it is blowing, blowing leaves from the trees
Ive got no use knowing that with time it will ease
I don't know where I'm going, hope I get there soon
'Cause my soul is hollow as the sorrowful moon
Na, na, na, na

The night is raining on my weary head
Taking me back

See the sun spread its wings of gold as the dawn unfurls
Hear the song that the moon sings to the darkened world
Feel the fire lighting in the bitter cold
See the light that shines through the windows of your soul
