She Said

She Said

She said she was sorry
she said for her it was time to sleep
she said she was lonely
she said she was a star and she did know why
and the time to hold
and the time to hold her
she said she had to go

and he climbs in a hole
and he shouts vertigo

let the flag return home
let the ship come to port
let her go
let her time to know
she’s a star and that she knows why
she’s a night and she will soon fall

she said
she was sorry
she was gone
for another road
and the time to say how sorrowful it was
and to say her sorrow was to fall again
she said
