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

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

Was it something that somebody said?
Mama, I know we broke the rules
Was somebody up against the law?
Honey, you know I'd die for you

Ashes of laughter
The ghost is clear
Why do the best things always disappear
Like Ophelia
Please darken my door

Was it something that somebody said?
Honey, you know we broke the rules
Was somebody up against the law?
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
Hmm hm come back home
Hmm hmm
