I saw you walking
Only yesterday

You disappeared
And the street was gray

I heard you laughing
With your laugh of gold
When I called out to you
Silence returned
And the air was cold 

The castle fell
Now you are gone 

No more rings the bell
Now you are gone
I found a letter 
On the day it rained
When I tore it open
There in my hands
Only ash remained

Now you are gone
No more rings the bell
Now you are gone 

I felt you breathing
As I fell asleep
When I reached out to touch you
No one was there
And the night was deep 

The candle died
Now you are gone
For the flame was too bright
Now you are gone 

I saw you walking
Only yesterday
When I ran to catch you
You disappeared
And the street was gray 

The castle fell
Now you are gone
No more rings the bell
Now you are gone
