Hasn't it only been a day
Since you began to pack your things?
Has it only been a week
Since you told me you are to leave?
And has it only been a month
Since I asked you what was wrong?
Has it only been a year
Since I told you first my dear?
So little time to say I love you
So little time to say goodbye
And I hope that you will be faithful
Or at least I hope you'll try
'Cause I don't know how long I can be along
The song goes on and on when you're not home
It's been the longest year
Since you left me here
This month goes on and on
Since you told me you were wrong
And these weeks've been so slow
Since you said that you'd come home
Now I only have a day to wait
To kiss when you step off the plain
No I don't mind if time goes fast or slow
Or take off the clocks of the walls when we get home
