Boards on the window Mail by the door
What would anybody leave so quickly for? Ophelia Where have you gone?

The old neighborhood just ain't the same Nobody knows just what became of Ophelia Tell me, what went wrong

Honey, you know I'd die for you

They got your number Scared and running But I'm still waiting for the second coming
Of Ophelia Come back home
