All Alone Lyrics

by Flying Burrito Brothers

All alone, she waits at the window
While the sun sets in the sea
Is that the sound of his footsteps?
That echo in the hall
And then they fade away
No, it wasn't him after all

He was gone in the early morning
And he said, he wouldn't be long
But that was spring and now
That the leaves have all turned brown
She only shares her bed with
The loneliness she has found

Still she waits alone at the window
For the one who wandered away
Each day the room grows colder
Her tears grow harder to hold
And still she saves her love
For the day she knows he'll come home

Is that the sound of his footsteps?
That echo in the hall
And then they fade away
No, it wasn't him after all
