Boards on the window, mail by the door
What would anybody leave so quickly for?
Ophelia
Where have you gone?

The old neighborhood just ain't the same
Nobody knows just what became of
Ophelia
Tell me, what went wrong

Was it somethin' that somebody said?
Mama, I know we broke the rule
Was somebody up against the law?
Honey, you know I'd die for you

Ashes of laughter, the ghost is clear
Why do the best things always disappear
Like Ophelia?
Please darken my door

Was it somethin' that somebody said?
Honey, you know we broke the rule
Was somebody up against the law?
Honey, you know I'd die for you

They got your number, scared and runnin'
But I'm still waitin' for the second comin'
Of Ophelia
Come back home

ROBERTSON, ROBBIE
