Lyrics of the late Stuart Adamson. A lady loses her lover at war time.
The day they had a party
Right out in the street
Flags and flowers and singing
The homecome hero's treat
I sat in the kitchen
Without a fire on the rage
I knew this house had lost the cause
To ever make me warm again.

Come back to me
Days are all too long
Come back to me
You never should have gone
I was so young and full of pride
And you were wild and strong
I never knew how weak I was.

I watched them gather round him
When he stepped down from the car
While tears fell on my cigarette
He handed out cigars
I have your child inside me
But you will never know
I never will forget you
While I watch that child grow.

I will always be here
Fading by the day
I will wash the bloody hands
And cast the bowl away
As the years hang on me
You will always be young
And one day I will lie down
Where the rose was flung.

I said, come back to me
Days are all too long
Come back to me
You never should have gone.
